This project aims to reimplement all the important system utilities like chown, chmod, cp, mv, cat, tail, head, grep, arch, uname, etc using diet libc. It's already quite usable now (cp, mv, chown, mkdir, rmdir, ln are there). While the obvious target audience is boot and rescue floppies, these utilities are also useful on normal systems.

Why not use busybox, you ask? Call it a matter of personal dislike for the code of busybox. One of the goals of embutils is to see if I can be smaller than busybox ;-)

New Advogato Features

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
