coreutils: GNU core utilities1

These are the GNU core utilities. This package is the union of the GNU fileutils, sh-utils, and textutils packages.

Most of these programs have significant advantages over their Unix counterparts, such as greater speed, additional options, and fewer arbitrary limits.

These programs are intended to be POSIX.2 compliant (with BSD and other extensions), like the rest of the GNU system.
