Often when discussing a technology thoseÂ familiarÂ with it will useÂ termsÂ that the neophyte user will puzzle over. Here are some short explanations of often used terms in CappuccinoÂ conversationsÂ and articles.
pngcrush is an optimizer for PNG (Portable Network Graphics) files. It can be run from a command line in an MSDOS window, or from a UNIX or LINUX command line.
In press for v:0.6 it was part of the command line but appears to have been removed (along with flatten) from the 0.8 tools.
pngcrush is nothing to do with Cappuccino so can be installed and run separately. However it looks as though 280Noprth are moving to a different way of dealing with the image element by using base64 encoding for spriting.

objj is a command-line interpreter and interactive console for Objective-J. It currently runs on Rhino on top of Narwhal which will facilitate eventually moving to a faster interpreter.
objjc, the Objective-J compiler, is the most important of the build tools, but you’ll likely never invoke it directly. objj can take any number of parameters as input filenames and output filenames (preceded by the “-o” flag).
Note: not clear as to the difference between Objj and Objjc
rhino: is the default and most complete platform, based on Mozilla Rhino for Java, used for out-of-the-box functionality.
Java based make tool. Used in Cappuccino builds prior to 0.7
