description Text based tool for reading, sending, and managing emails.
long_description Pine (Program for Internet News & Email) is a tool for reading, sending, \
and managing electronic messages. It was designed specifically with \
novice computer users in mind, but can be tailored to accommodate the \
needs of "power users" as well. Pine uses Internet message protocols \
(e.g. RFC-822, SMTP, MIME, IMAP, NNTP) and runs on Unix and PCs.

their mail (via pop, imap, rsmtp, pop_fetch, NFS... or the like). This \
program accepts mail and sends it to the mailhub, optionally replacing the \

description A scriptable ping program to check if multiple hosts are up

long_description fping is different from ping in that you can specify any number of \
hosts on the command line, or specify a file containing the lists \
of hosts to ping. Instead of trying one host until it timeouts or \
replies, fping will send out a ping packet and move on to the next \
host in a round-robin fashion. If a host replies, it is noted and \
removed from the list of hosts to check. If a host does not respond \
within a certain time limit and/or retry limit it will be considered \

description AIM message service client with a gtk-based interface
long_description GAIM is an Open Source 'clone' of America OnLine's Instant Messenger \
client using the GTK+ toolkit. It features most of the functionality \
of the official AIM client while being much smaller and faster. It \
features multiple groups, group chat, user information fetching and \
registration, time stamping, sound (for when you really do want to be \
interrupted), multiple away messages, and more. \
GAIM also has support for other IM protocols such as Yahoo!, MSN, ICQ, \
Jabber, Napster, IRC, and Zephyr via included plugins.

description Sophisticated file transfer program
long_description LFTP is a shell-like command line ftp client. \
It is reliable: can retry operations and does reget automatically. \
It can do several transfers simultaneously in background. \
You can start a transfer in background and continue browsing \
the ftp site or another one. This all is done in one process. \
Background jobs will be completed in nohup mode if you exit \
or close modem connection. Lftp has reput, mirror, reverse \

description Port scanning utility for large networks
long_description Nmap is a utility for port scanning large networks, although it works \
fine for single hosts. The guiding philosophy for the creation of nmap \
was TMTOWTDI (There's More Than One Way To Do It). This is the Perl \
slogan, but it is equally applicable to scanners. Sometimes you need \
speed, other times you may need stealth. In some cases, bypassing \
firewalls may be required. Not to mention the fact that you may want \
to scan different protocols (UDP, TCP, ICMP, etc.). You just can't do \
all this with one scanning mode. And you don't want to have 10 \
different scanners around, all with different interfaces and \
