Glick

Description
Glick is an application that lets developers easily create application bundles of their applications. An application bundle is a single file that contains all the data and files needed to run an application, so all the user has to do is start it. There is no need to install it, and if you don't like it you can just remove that file and the whole program will be gone.

There are some interesting aspecs of the glick implementation of application bundles:

- There is no specific runtime that needs to be installed on the target systems. As long as fuse is correctly installed an set up on the system just should not need anything but the bundle.
- The application installed in the bundle doesn't have to be relocatable. Glick uses a trick with the /proc/self magic link to find its files via an absolute pathname (/proc/self/fd/1023). This means that you don't have to modify applications to work with glick, just build then with ";;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;; glibench;GliBench;Gtk;glibench;;;http://glibench.sourceforge.net/;Gui based CPU and hard disk benchmarking tool;"GliBench is a Gui based benchmarking tool to check your computer's CPU and hard disk performance.
