However, it can also be used by normal users who want to know which distribution provides certain packages, and which version of a given package is in use in each distribution or in each release of a distribution.
winblast2unix fixes files/directories you import from a Windows partition or Windows-made disk. It translates all whitespaces and control characters in filenames and directories to the underscore character and executes a mass chmod on the files (755 for directories, .exe, .dll, and .com files, and 644 for everything else). It has user "restriction" for multi-user environments in which all users of a common programs folder may not be trusted. User can now chose the option of translating non-English characters into English equivalents, or strip them completely.
