Debian Jr. System tools

This package includes a few tools for helping children learn about and use their system.

Midnight Commander is more than just a file manager. It is shell with which children can explore and manage their own accounts. It can be a great help for the very young, as it saves them some typing (as compared with using a command-line shell directly). It is also packed with power and flexibility which can be tapped by older children and adults alike.

The 'hello' sample program can be used as an instructional aid, as an example of how to invoke programs from the shell, specify switches, use the man page, and so on.

Finally, lavaps not only provides a very pleasing way to visualize running processes and the resources they use, but can also make discovering and killing errant processes an easy thing to do for children who lack the ability yet to easily manage "ps" and "kill" from the command line.
