Carpentry tools recovered from the wreck of a 16th century sailing ship, the Mary Rose .
Anthropologists believe that the use of tools was an important step in the evolution of mankind. [ 1 ] Humans evolved an opposable thumb — useful in holding tools — and increased dramatically in intelligence, which aided in the use of tools. [ 2 ] Because tools are used extensively by both humans and wild chimpanzees. it is widely assumed that the first routine use of tools took place prior to the divergence between the two species. [ 3 ] These early tools, however, were likely made of perishable materials such as sticks, or consisted of unmodified stones that cannot be distinguished from other stones as tools. The beginning of the Stone Age marks the era when hominins first began manufacturing stone tools. and evidence of these tools dates back at least 2.6 million years in Ethiopia. [ 4 ] One of the earliest distinguishable stone tool forms is the hand axe .
Tools are the most important items that the ancient humans used to climb to the top of the food chain ; by inventing tools, they were able to accomplish tasks that human bodies could not, such as using a spear or bow and arrow to kill prey, since their teeth were not sharp enough to pierce many animals' skins.
The transition from stone to metal tools roughly coincided with the development of agriculture around the 4th millennium BC. Mechanical devices experienced a major expansion in their use in the Middle Ages with the systematic employment of new energy sources: water (waterwheels) and wind (windmills ).
Machine tools occasioned a surge in producing new tools in the industrial revolution. Advocates of nanotechnology expect a similar surge as tools become microscopic in size. [ 5 ] [ 6 ]
Stone and metal knives
One can classify tools according to their basic functions:
Some tools may be combinations of other tools. An alarm-clock is for example a combination of a measuring tool (the clock) and a perception tool (the alarm). This enables the alarm-clock to be a tool that falls outside of all the categories mentioned above.
There is some debate on whether to consider protective gear items as tools, because they do not directly help perform work, just protect the worker like ordinary clothing. They do meet the general definition of tools and in many cases are necessary for the completion of the work.Personal protective equipment includes such items as gloves, safety glasses, ear defenders and biohazard suits.Tool substitution
Often, by design or coincidence, a tool may share key functional attributes with one or more other tools. In this case, some tools can substitute for other tools, either as a make-shift solution or as a matter of practical efficiency. "One tool does it all" is a motto of some importance for workers who cannot practically carry every specialized tool to the location of every work task; such as a carpenter who does not necessarily work in a shop all day and needs to do jobs in a customers house. Tool substitution may be divided broadly into two classes: substitution "by-design", or "multi-purpose" use, and substitution as make-shift. Substitution "by-design" would be tools that are designed specifically to accomplish multiple tasks using only that one tool. Substitution as make-shift is when human ingenuity comes into play and a tool is used for its unintended purpose such as a mechanic using a long screw driver to separate a cars control arm from a ball joint instead of using a tuning fork. In many cases, the designed secondary functions of tools are not widely known. As an example of the former, many wood-cutting hand saws integrate a carpenter's square by incorporating a specially shaped handle that allows 90° and 45° angles to be marked by aligning the appropriate part of the handle with an edge and scribing along the back edge of the saw. The latter is illustrated by the saying "All tools can be used as hammers." Nearly all tools can be used to function as a hammer, even though very few tools are intentionally designed for it and even fewer work as well as the original.
Tools are also often used to substitute for many mechanical apparatuses, especially in older mechanical devices. In many cases a cheap tool could be used to occupy the place of a missing mechanical part. A window roller in a car could easily be replaced with a pair of vice grips or regular pliers. A transmission shifter or ignition switch would be able to be replaced with a screw-driver. Again, these would be considered tools that are being used for their unintended purposes, substitution as make-shift. Tools such as a Dremel would be considered the substitution "by-design", or "multi-purpose". This class of tools allows the use of one tool that has at least two different capabilities. "Multi-purpose" tools are basically multiple tools in one device/tool. Tools such as this are often power tools that come with many different attachments like a Dremel does, so you could say that a power drill is a "multi-purpose" tool because you can do more then just one thing with a power drill.Multi-use tools
A Victorinox Swiss Army knife with knife chain and belt clip - a popular multi-tool.
A Multi-tool is a hand tool that incorporates several tools into a single, portable device; the Swiss army knife represents one of the earliest examples. Other tools have a primary purpose but also incorporate other functionality - for example, lineman's pliers incorporate a gripper and cutter, and are often used as a hammer; and some hand saws incorporate a carpenter's square in the right-angle between the blade's dull edge and the saw's handle. This would also be the category in which the "multi-purpose" tools since they are also multiple tools in one (multi-use and multi-purpose can be used interchangeably). These types of tools were specifically made to catch the eye of many different craftsman who traveled to do their work. To these workers these types of tools were revolutionary because they were one tool or one device that could do several different things. With this knew revolution of tools the traveling craftsman would not have to carry so many tools with them to job sites, being that their space would be limited to the vehicle they were driving. The problem of having to deal with so many different tools was solved with the overtaking of multi-use tools.Tool metaphors
In North American colloquialism, the word "tool" may be loosely used to describe an individual of low mental capacity (essentially, an "idiot") or someone who fails to realise that they are being taken advantage of by others. [ 7 ] This metaphor is drawn from the understanding that tools (as understood by most of society) are objects that are used for specific tasks.
A modern hammer is directly descended from ancient hand tools.
A tool may be defined as a device or piece of equipment that is used to facilitate or accomplish a mechanical task. A broader definition of a tool is an entity used to interface between two or more domains, to facilitate more effective action of one domain on the other.Some historical highlights
Evidence of the manufacture and use of stone tools dates back to the beginnings of the Stone Age. although it is possible that earlier tools of less durable material may not have survived. Stone tools found in China have been dated (magnetostratigraphically) to approximately 1.36 million years ago. The transition from stone to metal tools roughly coincided with the development of metal smelting, agriculture. and animal domestication around the fourth millennium B.C.E. Early metal tools were made of copper and then bronze. followed by iron .
The development of civilizations was intimately linked to the development of various types of tools. There was a major expansion in the invention and production of mechanical devices during the Middle Ages. with the systematic employment of new energy sources, namely, water (in the form of waterwheels) and wind (in the form of windmills ).
The production of new tools surged during the Industrial Revolution. in the form of machine tools. Advocates of nanotechnology expect a similar surge as tools become microscopic in size.  Types of tools and their functions
A machine tool is a powered mechanical device, typically used to fabricate metal components of machines by machining, which is the selective removal of metal. The term machine tool is usually reserved for a tool that uses a power source other than human effort, but it may also be powered by a person if appropriately set up. Examples of machine tools include lathes, broaching machines, hobbing machines, shapers, planers, Stewart platform mills, and grinders .Multi-use tools

Protective gear is recommended for people who use tools. Personal protective equipment includes such items as gloves, safety glasses, ear defenders, and biohazard suits. These items themselves are not considered tools, because they do not directly help perform work but they protect the worker from injury.Development of human civilization
Most anthropologists believe that the use of tools was an important step in the development of human civilization.  Humans have an opposable thumb—useful in holding tools—and increased dramatically in intelligence, which aided in the use of tools. 
It is in the domain of media and communications technology that a counter-intuitive aspect of our relationships with our tools first began to gain popular recognition. Marshall McLuhan famously said "We shape our tools. And then our tools shape us." McLuhan was referring to the fact that our social practices adapt with our use of new tools and the refinements we make to existing tools.Philosophical implications
Philosophers once thought that only humans had the ability to make and use tools. It has, however, been observed that various other species can use tools, including monkeys. apes. sea otters, and several types of birds. In addition, zoologists have reported that some birds and monkeys can make tools.   
Many now think that the unique relationship between humans and tools is that we are the only species that uses tools to make other tools.
The Android SDK includes a variety of tools that help you develop mobile applications for the Android platform. The tools are classified into two groups: SDK tools and platform tools. SDK tools are platform independent and are required no matter which Android platform you are developing on. Platform tools are customized to support the features of the latest Android platform.Debugging Tools
Android Monitor Android Monitor is integrated into Android Studio and provides logcat, memory, CPU, GPU, and network monitors for app debugging and analysis. adb Android Debug Bridge (adb) is a versatile command line tool that lets you communicate with an emulator instance or connected Android-powered device. It also provides access to the device shell. ADB Shell Commands Learn the commands available for advanced command-line operations. Dalvik Debug Monitor Server (ddms) Lets you debug Android applications. Device Monitor Android Device Monitor is a stand-alone tool that provides a graphical user interface for several Android application debugging and analysis tools. dmtracedump Generates graphical call-stack diagrams from trace log files. The tool uses the Graphviz Dot utility to create the graphical output, so you need to install Graphviz before running dmtracedump. For more information on using dmtracedump. see Profiling with Traceview and dmtracedump hprof-conv Converts the HPROF file that is generated by the Android SDK tools to a standard format so you can view the file in a profiling tool of your choice. Systrace Lets you analyze the execution of your application in the context of system processes, to help diagnose display and performance issues. traceview Provides a graphical viewer for execution logs saved by your application.Build Tools
JOBB Allows you to build encrypted and unencrypted APK expansion files in Opaque Binary Blob (OBB) format. ProGuard Shrinks, optimizes, and obfuscates your code by removing unused code and renaming classes, fields, and methods with semantically obscure names. zipalign Optimizes .apk files by ensuring that all uncompressed data starts with a particular alignment relative to the start of the file. This should always be used to align .apk files after they have been signed.Image Tools
Draw 9-patch Allows you to easily create a NinePatch graphic using a WYSIWYG editor. It also previews stretched versions of the image, and highlights the area in which content is allowed. Image Asset Studio Helps you to generate custom icons for your Android applications from existing images, cliparts, or text. It generates a set of icons at the appropriate resolution for each generalized screen density that your app supports. Vector Asset Studio Helps you add material icons and import Scalable Vector Graphic (SVG) files into your Android Studio project as a drawable resource. etc1tool A command line utility that lets you encode PNG images to the ETC1 compression standard and decode ETC1 compressed images back to PNG. Tracer for OpenGL ES Allows you to capture OpenGL ES commands and frame by frame images to help you understand how your graphics commands are being executed.Platform Tools
The platform tools are typically updated every time you install a new SDK platform. Each update of the platform tools is backward compatible with older platforms. Usually, you directly use only one of the platform tools—the Android Debug Bridge ( adb ). Android Debug Bridge is a versatile tool that lets you manage the state of an emulator instance or Android-powered device. You can also use it to install an Android application (.apk) file on a device.
The other platform tools, such as aidl. aapt. dexdump. and dx. are typically called by the Android build tools, so you rarely need to invoke these tools directly. As a general rule, you should rely on the build tools to call them as needed.
Note: The Android SDK provides additional shell tools that can be accessed through adb. such as bmgr and logcat .
bmgr A shell tool you can use to interact with the Backup Manager on Android devices supporting API Level 8 or greater. logcat Provides a mechanism for collecting and viewing system debug output.

The joeware utilities. Saving administrators around the world time and frustration for over twelve years.
All joeware utilities have a very simple warranty which you can find here .
Please feel free to use these tools as you like, if you do something cool with them, let me know. I like hearing what things people find to do with them.
For each utility I try to keep a current list of what platforms it will or won't work on. The mapping for the symbols are + for runs, - for doesn't run, and † for it runs but not perfectly. The last is specific to Windows Server 2008 and is due to the granular password policy. If the granular password policy is not being used, you will have no issues. If you are using the granular policy the results will be incorrect.
Already know the name of the tool you want? Use these Quick Links.active directory specific tools

DTools.exe stands for a malicious program, which may easily become the part of your computer. Most often this DTools.exe is also related to ProtectWindowsManager program, что крайне вредоносный. It is related to several nasty browser hijackers, which also may be detected in your PC. Например, Omniboxes, Oursurfing, iStartSurf, MyStartSearch – they all are somehow related to DTools.exe процесс.
Цель DTools.exe is to prevent you from removing these nasty browser hijackers from your computer. When you attempt to change the home page of your browser manually back to google.com or any other page of your choice, DTools.exe will do its malicious job of restoring the parameters of these hijackers back into your browser. Следовательно, the problems will persist.
Note that DTools.exe (ProtectWindowsManager) and related browser hijackers are by default bundled with a lot of other cost-free programs. You need to be very careful not to permit any concealed installations to occur in your computer without your approval. Always pay close attention to what exactly you’re going to install into your system in addition to the initial application of your choice. This is the best way to avoid adware from becoming the part of your computer.
