tools useful for A-A-P

The intention for A-A-P is to use existing tools as much as possible. To find out which tools can be used this overview has been compiled.
    Some tools cannot be used directly, but function as an example or can be invoked by A-A-P (e.g., commercial tools and programs which are not portable). Unless noted otherwise, tools are open-source.
    If you find a tool that would be useful for A-A-P but is not listed here, or when information is incorrect, send a message to Bram AT
    Note: this list is not intended to be complete. Information that is irrelevant for A-A-P is omitted.

Various tools

Since A-A-P tries to use existing tools as much as possible, this list provides useful tools related to A-A-P. This is not intended to make a choice, but to check if these tools can work together in the A-A-P framework.

File sharing
