Published at LXer:

BusyBox is a single executable implementation of many standard Linux utilities. In this article, explore the purpose of BusyBox how it works, and why it's important for memory-constrained environments. BusyBox contains simple utilities such as cat and echo, as well as more complex tools such as grep, find, mount, and telnet (albeit, with fewer options than the traditional version); some refer to BusyBox as the Swiss Army knife of utilities.
