BusyBox combines tiny versions of many common UNIX utilities into a single small executable.

BusyBox (“the Swiss Army knife of embedded Linux”) combines common command-line utilities into a single executable. It includes a shell, file utilities such as ls and cp, text utilities such as grep and sed, basic system utilities such as init and syslogd, system administration utilities such as fsck and sysctl, networking utilities such as ping and ifconfig, and more. It is intended for small Linux systems such as boot floppies and embedded devices.
