Access advanced Unix features

I happened to fall on this nifty little utility this morning while roaming through Apple's Mac OS X downloads: Cocktail 1.0b3

It enables you to do all sorts of interesting things like

  • update prebinding information
  • run cron scripts
  • repair permissions
  • delete locked or unaccessible items
  • enable and disable journaling
  • delete archived log files
  • create symbolic links
  • view log files
  • change network card setting
  • request new lease from DHCP server
  • force empty trash
  • recreate alias to Mac OS 9 desktop
  • remove cache files
  • customize look and features of Finder and Dock
  • easily opitimize your system using Auto Pilot
