/sw is a UNIX software distribution system developed at the University of 
Stuttgart, long before Linux existed! 

You cannot install it with apt, because /sw is not an application, but a
software distribution system!

Part of /sw are my fstools.
Using of /sw is not mandatory, it is just easier to do so, because of the
updater, etc. 

You can download fstools or part of them manually from
