A GNU/Linux system is, to some extent, like the Ancient Persian Empire: far wider than any other equivalent seen before -- a wealthy but not-so-trivial place to run.
There are nice graphical front-ends, to help end users. And there's Darius* trying to collect some scripts that are all designed to be faster and easier to use than the command line that would normally be required to accomplish the same task.
If you made some scripts (shell, perl, or other) that fit to this description, please propose them for inclusion by sending a nice mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
Darius Tools are split-up in different package. Each one is technically independent.
You can find them in the download area -- or, with apt-get, by adding the following line in /etc/apt/sources.list on Debian systems:
deb http://dl.gna.org/darius-tools/ ./.
