[13 Sept 2012] Project changed maintainer and now hosted on GitHub:
Original project description follows.
pdcore is a POSIX.1-2008 compliant public domain implementation of the
core UNIX file, shell and text manipulation utilities.
This utility set differs from existing implementations in one (or both)
of two key aspects:
(1) It is placed entirely within the public domain. See the file
UNLICENSE for further details.
(2) It aims to achieve strict adherence to POSIX.1-2008. Note that
this does NOT imply any endorsement of pdcore by The Open Group.
At a practical level, pdcore can be used as a drop-in replacement for
the near-ubiquitous GNU core utility suite. Unlike the latter, pdcore
is truly free, respects *nix standards, is vastly smaller, and generally
doesn't suck ass.
Whilst coded and tested on i686 Linux, pdcore ought to compile and run on
any POSIX.1-compliant *nix operating system with an ANSI C compiler. The
project maintainer would be especially interested in feedback from users
of other platforms, and any issues that they might experience (e.g. should
endianness causes a problem).
