The Swiss File Knife is a multi-function command line tool, designed to avoid the need to install many other small tools.
With SFK, you can instantly

- find and extract text in binary files
- list dir tree sizes
- filter and replace text
- run an instant ftp server
- find duplicate files
- join many text files into one
- create and verify md5 checksum lists
- run a self-defined command on many files
- remove TAB characters from text
- create hexdumps from files
- trace contents of a tcp connection
- find dependencies between files
- print colored text to terminal
- locate commands in path
- print last lines of a file
- convert hex to binary
- convert binary to source code
- convert CR/LF line endings
- split and join large files
as well as other functions.

no installation, registry spamming, DLL's etc., all open source.

just download the .exe from
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfile ... _id=160478
(or the .zip, if you're interested in the source code)

further documentation is available under
http://stahlworks.com/dev/swiss-file-knife.html

binaries are provided for win98 and later, as well as linux.

SFK's a great multi-platform tool, no doubt about it. 8)

Nonetheless, and according to local custom (and TPFC's FAQ, http://www.portablefreeware.com/faq.php#six), the present topic would be better placed in the "Resources and Links" forum...

Amen to that...8)

Add my vote for the "Powers That Be" to relocate this "Swiss File Knife" topic
(created way back when in AD 2008, and quietly dormant ever since) to wherever it rightfully belongs.

May it rest in peace therein...;-)

Swiss File Knife v1.7.6 is released (changelog is at http://sourceforge.net/projects/swissfileknife/files/1-swissfileknife/1.7.6/).

    Swiss File Knife combines many functions in a single, portable executable that belongs onto every USB stick. Search and convert text files, instant simple FTP/HTTP server, find duplicate files, compare folders, treesize, run own commands on all files of a folder -- it's all within a single tool.

The version that stahlworks released is 1.7.5, not 1.7.6. 1.7.6 is what stahlworks calls the "head version". Head version is a kind of a development snapshot.

When 1.7.6 became the head version, the last 1.7.5 build became the 1.7.5 release. 1.7.6 lives: as the readme mentions, stahlworks may replace the 1.7.6 downloads with a newer build at any time (until 1.7.7 or 1.8.0 or whatever becomes the head version).

SFK - The Swiss File Knife File Tree Processor.
Release 1.7.6 Base/XD Revision 2 of Feb 19 2016.

Is their website download link: http://stahlworks.com/dev/sfk/sfk.exe considered the 'Release' as indicated?
Their SourceForge page for 1.7.6 still has the 'Head Version' notice...
