original UNIX tools/utils for Linux


The AT&T AST OpenSource software collection [1] , The Heirloom Project [2]
and Plan 9 from User Space [3] bring a lot of original UNIX tools/utils.

Some of them have already been taken, mailx from Heirloom and ksh from

But the project was frozen||abandoned in 2oo5.
