All the good names starting with g are already taken (by GNU or Google or other Gs). Like for example gnash (GNU) or gneat (Google).
I was going to suggest gneatly, and than saw that it has different context (in common english) than I previously tought.
Snoopies already exist. There were at least two DOS tools I can remember - one was a kind of tracer/debugger and other was system diagnostics tool. Fluff is file manager from Tiny Core (if you ever tought about that suggestion seriously ).
I'm writing a new program and would like some help/feedback on ideas for a name.
The program is meant to inspect a package or package-tree and report any 'unusual' conditions. There are several programs which inspect sources which are called 'lint' or some variation thereof. The debian distro includes a tool called 'lintian' which is for inspecting packages -like what I want to do.
Instead of using weird names for a tool, I recommend to stick with something which is already in similar use in the Unix world:
checkpkg is a tool which checks Solaris packages for problems.
It analyzes files contained within package files. It's related to GAR, but it can be also used with any packages.
