DescriptionA quick guide to some 3112 useful Linux programs with a copy of the man page.
The database is local and static so there is no need for an internet connection to run the app. It will work even in the deepest of server rooms!
A search function is implemented with an external server. The server is located at www.linuxfunkar.se and uses TCP port 8754.
The technical reason for using an external server is performance due to the large index table needed. It would take a few minutes (or hours perhaps, I havn't really tried..) just to start the app if the index table was to be initiated locally. It would also add around 40-50MB to the app size AND 60-70MB of RAM required just to run the app.
It is possible to search for more than one matching word by separating the words with a space or a new line.

The app is available for free on Android market. It can also be downloaded directly at:
