deployment and management system for Lua modules
This package contains LuaRocks, a tool for managing rocks. A Lua rock is a bundle containing a module and some metadata like compilation instructions and copyright. The command line utility luarocks can download, build, install and remove rocks, properly handling dependencies among them and allowing multiple versions of the same rock to coexist. . The tool installs system-wide rocks in /usr/local when run by the superuser, but a regular user can easily tune it to install rocks in his home directory. . This package also provides the luarocks-admin tool, needed to create a rocks repository, and the documentation for luarocks, describing the command line tools as well as the library to manipulate rocks.
MirBSD Korn Shell
mksh is the successor of the Public Domain Korn shell (pdksh), a Bourne/POSIX compatible shell which is largely similar to the original AT&T Korn Shell (ksh88/ksh93). It includes bug fixes and feature improvements, in order to produce a modern, robust shell good for interactive and especially script use. mksh has UTF-8 support (in string operations and the Emacs editing mode). The code has been cleaned up and simplified, bugs fixed, standards compliance added, and several enhancements (for extended compatibility to other modern shells, as well as a couple of its own) are available. This shell is Debian Policy 10.4 compliant and works as /bin/sh on Debian systems (use the /bin/lksh executable) and is a good rescue and initrd shell (consider the /bin/mksh-static executable). . The mksh binary is a complete, full-featured shell. It provides a “consistent across all platforms” guarantee, using 32-bit integers for arithmetics, possibly deviating from POSIX. . The mksh-static binary is a version of mksh, linked against klibc, musl, or dietlibc (if they exist for that Debian architecture and are usable) and optimised for small code size, for example for use on initrd or initramfs images, installation or rescue systems. Except for omitting some features to be smaller, it is similar to the mksh binary otherwise. Note the exact feature set may differ depending on which C library was used to compile it. . The lksh binary is a script shell based on mksh intended to run old ksh88 and pdksh scripts, but not for interactive use. When used as /bin/sh it follows POSIX most closely, including use of the host’s “long” C data type for arithmetics. It also contains kludges so it can run as /bin/sh on Debian beyond what Policy dictates, to work around bugs in maintainer scripts and LSB init scripts shipped by many packages, such as including a rudimentary printf(1) builtin, permitting a shell function to be named stop overriding the default alias, more loose interpretation of shell extglobs, etc. . A sample ~/.mkshrc is included in /usr/share/doc/mksh/examples and provided as /etc/mkshrc conffile, which is sourced by another file /etc/skel/.mkshrc users are recommended to copy into their home.
MultiLingual TERMinal, scim input method plugin
mlterm is a terminal emulator for X Window System, which supports various encodings, doublewidth characters, BiDi, Arabic shaping, and so on. . This package contains scim input method plugin for mlterm.
Simple log colorizer
Lwatch is a program to split syslog or syslog-ng messages with regexps (PCREs), colorize and display them in a way that important information can be seen at a glance. It is a small, useful tool for system administrators.
lightweight window manager
Low resource Window manager ideal for older PCs. It uses a minimum of external libraries, thus very little memory. It doesn't iclude icons, icon docs, button bars or root menus.
LXDE monitor configuration tool
LXRandR is a GUI application for the Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment (LXDE). . This is a very basic monitor config tool utilizing the X extension called RandR. It can let you change the screen resolution on the fly. Besides, when you run lxrandr with external monitor connected, its GUI will change, and show you some quick options to get your projector or external monitor working correctly. . This tool doesn't aim to be a full randr frontend. If you need the full power of RandR, get xrandr (console) or grandr (GUI) and read some tutorials. . LXRandR only gives you some easy and quick options which are intuitive. It's very suitable for laptop users who frequently uses projectors or external monitor and just want to get their work done without reading a lot of "geek-centered" manuals or command line tutorials.
