For a great many linux software packages, there are several good places
to get a quick description of what they do:


I generally use `apt-cache search' (which is pretty much equivalent to
packages.debian.org on my Debian unstable box) and that tells me what I
want to know.

Google also helps.

I usually have a GPG digital signature included as an attachment.
See http://www.gnupg.org/ for info about these digital signatures.
My key was last signed 10/14/2003. If you use GPG *please* see me about 
signing the key. ***** My computer can't give you viruses by email. ***
