misctools package is a collection of small but useful utilities
misctools package is a collection of small but useful utilities. Though they are small and trivial, I've found these programs to be indispensable.
The utilities are:
A binary dump program; similar to the UNIX od command, but produces output in a much more useful format.
A program to copy file permissions.
A curses-based directory browser/selector.
A program that generates a hierarchical list of filenames for a given directory tree.
A wrapper program that allows a Java program to run as a true UNIX daemon.
A program that truncates files to specified lengths.
A program that reads characters from the keyboard and displays their ASCII codes in various formats.
A program that prints out random fortunes.
A program that reads a line at random from a file.
A program that prints out information about a file.
A password-protection program like xlock for use on text terminals.
A program that reformats text, wrapping words as necessary, to fit within a specified number of columns.
A program that watches the size of a file and invokes another program when the file size increases.
What's New in This Release:
Minor enhancements were made to the "pfortune" program, and some additional fortune databases have been added.
