Short Description
Busybox-based image that contains a script for running files from busyboxer.
Full Description

##Docker image usage
Busybox includes a small (but very useful) set of commands. When you need just a little bit of extra oomph from another program, you can copy in a binary file and its dependencies and run that program. Busyboxed takes a .tar.gz file with the appropriate structure and runs it in a busybox image.

For example, if you need socat for busybox and have socat.tar.gz produced by busyboxer, run

docker run -t -i --rm -v `pwd`:/vapr/build:ro sojournlabs/busyboxed socat

##Wrapper usage
First, package a program using busyboxer. With the dockertools wrapper, this is

busyboxer command_name [from_package]

where command_name is the name of the command to be packaged and from_package is the package that provides command_name in Debian, where applicable.

To run the .tar.gz file produced with busyboxed using the dockertools wrapper, run

busyboxed command_name arg1 arg2 ... argn

That's all! For more details on usage, look at the dockertools wrapper source or in the Dockerfiles for busyboxer and busyboxed.
