- AFD is a program to automatically distribute files either locally or to remote hosts. The files are distributed by using FTP or SMTP, and can be sent in parallel and with priority. It provides a GUI to monitor and control the distribution and extensive logging of all activities.
- 'adtool' is a *nix command line utility for Active Directory administration. Its features include user and group creation, deletion, modification, password setting, directory query, and search capabilities.
- 'alien' converts between the rpm, deb, Stampede slp, and Slackware tgz file formats. If you want to use a package from a distribution different from the one installed on your system, 'alien' will convert it to your preferred package format and install it. However, 'alien' should not be used to replace important system packages, like sysvinit, shared libraries, or other things that are essential for the functioning of your system. Many of these packages are set up differently by Debian and Red Hat, and packages from the different distributions cannot be used interchangably.
- Alist is a program that collects hardware and software information about systems and stores it in a database for users to browse and search via a Web interface. The program consists of three parts: a client portion that collects the information, a daemon that receives data sent from clients, and a CGI that displays and lets you search for information.
- 'apt-torrent' contains an apt to the BitTorrent gateway. It lets you fetch packages through the BitTorrent protocol
- 'apvsys' is a wrapper designed to manage different versions of applications (engineering tools, compilers, debuggers, etc.). It is not a source-code version control system like CVS or RCS. Users need only one path to access all versions of all tools; they can access a default version without any setting. The application settings needed to start a tool properly are centralized by the ApVSys administrator, so there is NO setting needed for the users. Hence, all the users share exactly the same environment, which greatly reduces the support needed.
- AutoCodeGenerator is a tool which is able to generate other programs that insert, delete, or update database records for a number of different database programs. Programs can be generated in Python, bash, ksh, Java, C, or other languages; the package also generates code for various database servers via a plain text file.
- AutoUpdate is a simple Perl script which performs a task similar to Red Hat's up2date or autorpm. It can be used to automatically download and upgrade RPMs from different FTP sites. Moreover, it can also be used to keep a server with a customized (Red Hat) distribution plus all clients up to date. The program should work with any rpm based distribution. It's designed to run from a cron job and keep output to a minimum. It will try to resolve dependencies and pick the right architecture.
- 'Autodist' is a source distribution management system that lets users define what is included in and excluded from a distribution and what license is used. It is especially targeted at large software projects that create multiple distributions from a source tree. Autodist supports distribution management in directory, file, and file content level, and automatic relicensing of a distribution. Please note that Autodist is not a binary packaging system. It is specifically used to create source distributions. A binary packaging system, however can be hooked to the distribution creation process, if needed.
- 'Batchput' transfers files from a local directory, matching a specified regex, to an FTP server. It is mainly for transfering "incoming" files continually to another host by being called regularly from crontab or similar. It does this safely and efficiently by using per-directory locking to avoid collisions between different batchput processes, allowing configuration of notification in case of error, and moving transferred files to a local backup location where they can be archived or deleted.
