"Lineo has announced the release of version 0.46 of BusyBox,
the popular "swiss army knife" utility suite for embedded Linux
systems. The update fixes several bugs, provides improved

hardware costs while maintaining a reasonable degree of
"BusyBox has been written with size-optimization and limited
resources in mind. The utility's modular architecture also makes it
practical to include or exclude specific commands or features at
compile time. Systems designers can thereby tune the functionality
to the requirements and resources of the specific embedded Linux
