Mueller-dict is an electronic version of popular the English-Russian dictionary by professor V. K. Mueller in DICT format. It currently contains more than 50,000 articles and represents a full copy of the 7th edition of the mentioned dictionary, with some additions and corrections sourced from the more recent typographical editions. It includes phonetic transcription in the IPA (International Phonetic Association) system optimized for proper rendering on text terminals with standard Cyrillic fonts.
Quotactl is a package of simple tools for controlling the Linux kernel disk quota system, the kernel facility for limiting users and groups to a certain amount of disk space. The tools are simple and independent so that you can build your own disk quota administration system out of them. The "quotactl" program is simply a command line interface to the Linux quotactl() system call. "mkquota" creates an empty quota file. "quotarept" dumps the contents of a quota file. This is not an integrated quota administration system like quota-tools.
liblzw is a small C library to provide an API for reading LZW compressed files (.Z). Its API is similar to that of zlib (for reading .gz files) and bzlib (for reading .bz2 files) which themselves are just like the classical UNIX functions for reading files, so the learning curve should be negligible.
sda12 is a package of software for working with the B&B Electronics 485SDA12 RS-485 analog and digital data acquisition device. It includes a command line program, an XML-RPC server program, and a C++ programming library to provide access to the module's analog inputs, digital inputs, and outputs. You can read the analog input voltages, set the digital output lines, set the module address, and do anything else the device's programming interface allows.
Systime tells you how much CPU time running a program uses. It is like the classic "time" command, except that "time" only tells the CPU time used by the immediate process, whereas "systime" includes other processes that serve the main process, such as the X server and kernel memory management processes. Systime reports all the CPU time used on the entire system while the subject program was running. It uses Linux's /proc filesystem.
Foremost is a console program that recovers files based on their headers, footers, and internal data structures. This process is commonly referred to as data carving. Foremost can work on image files, such as those generated by dd, Safeback, Encase, etc., or directly on a drive. The headers and footers can be specified by a configuration file, or you can use command line switches to specify built-in file types. These built-in types look at the data structures of a given file format, allowing for a more reliable and faster recovery. It was originally developed by the United States Air Force Office of Special Investigations and The Center for Information Systems Security Studies and Research.
