Description:
PAX - Portable Archive Interchange Pax is an archiving utility that reads and writes tar and cpio formats, both the traditional ones and the extended formats specified in IEEE 1003.1. It handles multi-volume archives and automatically determines the format of an archive while reading it. Three user interfaces are supported: tar, cpio, and pax. The pax interface was designed by IEEE 1003.2 as a compromise in the chronic controversy over which of tar or cpio is best.

Architecture: all
Maintainer:
Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>
Description:
attempts to put an unpacked .deb file back together dpkg-repack tries to create a .deb file out of a debian package that has already been installed. If any changes have been made to the package while it was unpacked (ie, files in /etc were modified), the new package will inherit the changes.

When it works, this utility can make it easy to copy packages from one computer to another, or to recreate packages that are installed on your system, but no longer available elsewhere, or to store the current state of a package before you upgrade it.

perl

archive. Customizes control files. Provides example setup for debstd that is
usually usable with minimal editing.
- debchange: Maintain debian/changelog files to record changes
- debclean: Purge a debian sourcetree
- release: Upload and manages release numbers. Integrates with dupload
- build: Wrapper to build a package without having to su.
- debpkg : dpkg wrapper to be able to manage packages without su.
- debi,debc convenience scripts for often repeated maintainer tasks. And most importantly "debstd" which has the following abilities:
- Automatizes compression of documentation, localizes manpages
compresses and installs them.
- Supports multiple binaries generated from a single source package
- Generates maintainer scripts for you and installs all scripts
for you in the proper locations with the proper permissions.
- Can perform modifications on a variety of important debian config files
through generation of proper maintainer scripts.
- Runs dpkg-shlibdeps on all ELF binaries for you and generates correct
shlibs file for provided libraries automatically.
- Checks symlinks to manpages /documentation and redirects
them if a file was compressed.

gitps is an interactive process viewer/killer. It calls the ps(1) utility internally. and gitps parameters are in fact ps(1) ones. Running gitps is self explanatory. Use the arrows, PageUp, PageDown, Home, End, C-n, C-p, C-v, ESC v to move in the list, C-l to refresh it and F10 or C-g to leave. You can change these keys.

gitview is a hex/ascii file viewer. Too simple to need a separate manual page. Use the arrows, PageUp, PageDown, Home, End, C-n, C-p, C-v, ESC v to move in the file, C-l to refresh the screen and F10 or C-g to leave. You can change these keys.

Description:
The GNU time utility. The `time' command runs another program, then displays information about the resources used by that program, collected by the system while the program was running. You can select which information is reported and the format in which it is shown, or have `time' save the information in a file instead of display it on the screen.

The resources that `time' can report on fall into the general categories of time, memory, I/O, and IPC calls.

The GNU version can format the output in arbitrary ways by using a printf-style format string to include various resource measurements.

The restore command performs the inverse function of dump. A full backup of a file system may be restored and subsequent incremental backups layered on top of it. Single files and directory subtrees may be restored from full or partial backups.

PAX - Portable Archive Interchange Pax is an archiving utility that reads and writes tar and cpio formats, both the traditional ones and the extended formats specified in IEEE 1003.1. It handles multi-volume archives and automatically determines the format of an archive while reading it. Three user interfaces are supported: tar, cpio, and pax. The pax interface was designed by IEEE 1003.2 as a compromise in the chronic controversy over which of tar or cpio is best.

Description:
The GNU time utility. The `time' command runs another program, then displays information about the resources used by that program, collected by the system while the program was running. You can select which information is reported and the format in which it is shown, or have `time' save the information in a file instead of display it on the screen.

The resources that `time' can report on fall into the general categories of time, memory, I/O, and IPC calls.

The GNU version can format the output in arbitrary ways by using a printf-style format string to include various resource measurements.

Description:
Ported 4.4BSD dump and restore utilities. Dump examines files on a filesystem and determines which files need to be backed up. These files are copied to the given disk, tape or other storage medium for safe keeping.

The restore command performs the inverse function of dump. A full backup of a file system may be restored and subsequent incremental backups layered on top of it. Single files and directory subtrees may be restored from full or partial backups.

Package building tools for Debian Linux This package contains the tools (including dpkg-source) required to unpack, build and upload Debian source packages. It also contains the programmers' and Debian policy manuals, which are the documentation for package developers.

`cpio' and `patch' are also required to manipulate source packages. Some older cpios are insufficient - use at least 2.4.2-2.

Most Debian source packages will require additional tools to build - for example, most packages need the `make' and the C compiler `gcc'.

Description:
Archive file manipulation program. Afio manipulates groups of files, copying them within or between filesystems and an afio archive.

Afio archives are portable as they contain only ASCII-formatted header information. Afio makes cpio-format archives. Afio deals somewhat gracefully with input data corruption. Afio supports multi-volume archives during interactive operation. Afio can make compressed archives that are much safer than compressed tar or cpio archives.

Afio is best used as an `archive engine' in a backup script.

It makes full backups, differential backups (of the files which were changed since the last full backup), incremental backups (of files changed since all previous backups), lets you determine the size of the backup before actually making it, maintain listings of made backups, make remote backups and possibly more.

Description:
A system call tracer. strace is a system call tracer, i.e. a debugging tool which prints out a trace of all the system calls made by a another proces/program. The program to be traced need not be recompiled for this, so you can use it on binaries for which you don't have source.

System calls and signals are events that happen at the user/kernel interface. A close examination of this boundary is very useful for bug isolation, sanity checking and attempting to capture race conditions.
