Techopedia Explains BusyBoxBusyBox can be customized according to the requirements of the operating environment and can provide a subset of more than 200 utilities. The complete list of utilities that are implemented are available on the BusyBox website. BusyBox uses the ash shell and provides most of the utility tools found in the Single Unix Specification.
The single binary approach helps BusyBox to share the code between multiple applications without the need of a library. It also reduces the overhead needed for executable file formats.
Sharing of the common code among applications and size optimized routines allows BusyBox to be much smaller than a system with full versions of utilities.
