The MLK-Tools are a set of scripts I've developed over the years during
my time working as UNIX-SysAdmin, in an attempt to make my life easier because I'm "lazy"
(I do prefer writting 1000 lines of code than repeating the same command line twice...).
I'm still engaged as UNIX-SysAdmin so I think that these utils might be usefull
for some other fellows.
To tell the truth, by now they are a front-end for some other UNIX commands,
such as tar + gzip, or even for programms developed by others. Whenever I have
time, I'll re-code almost everything to make it more "independant".
The tools were/are developed using Korn-shell which is, I think, a good way
for achieving things using system-independant tools; so you don't need to
have Perl or a C/C++ compiler installed on your box, althought I'm sure that someone would
be willing to port this Ksh-stuff to either Perl, Python or any other
higher-level programming language. If you do so, please let me know! That would
save me some hours of coding :-)
