  • Version: 1.04
  • Entered-date: 1999-11-15
  • Description: An admin utility to aid the tidying up of binaries, interpreted scripts, dynamic libraries and man pages. It can find the number and identity of a.out, ELF & ECOFF binaries, plus their debugging symbols status, setuid status and dynamic library dependence. It can count the number of Java bytecode programs. It can tally up the main types of scripts and look for unidentified executable text files. Also it is able to look for any duplicated executable and manual page names, unused libraries, binaries with missing libraries and statically linked binaries. Also includes a C program to dereference symbolic links.
