Do we have information on how to use it? :-)

I mean, how do we invoke it in TW, in an emergency.

Call busybox-static followed by the command, e.g.

$ busybox-static ls


$ busybox-static dmesg

Ah, I thought it would be something more convoluted :-)

Like it states in --help output: create some symlinks to it:

Yes, but that is what one does in an embedded system that only runs
busybox, not on a full fledged Linux system such as openSUSE. And
possibly in such an emergency that needs busybox, none of the commands
you use in the script would work, so you would need to run them as
"busybox-static mkdir xxx" etc instead.
