Software from Matt

I installed the following programs as personal need arose, and I keep the ones I use up to date.

In alphabetical order:

  • emacs22 (emacs-22.0.50): displays Chinese unicode!
  • graphviz 2.2 (dot, neato): the open source graph-visualization project from AT&T
  • praat (praat): audio transcription tool
  • open: my (evolving as needed) implementation of OS X's excellent open program
  • R 2.3.1 (R)
  • RealPlayer (RealPlayer/realplay): Real Audio player
  • RealVNC 4.1.1 (vncviewer, vncconfig, vncpasswd, vncserver)
  • rrdtool 1.2.11 (rrdtool): the round robin database, a great graphing and logging tool
  • satz-rand 5.0: randomized SAT solver
  • strfile: reads a specially formatted file and builds a database for use by fortune.
  • zchaff: SAT solver

I use Window Maker and have also installed some handy wapps:

  • wmpinboard: post TODO notes, set alarms
  • wmnet: monitor network usage (run with wmnet -l -x 10000000)
  • wmCalClock: displays the time and date
  • wmcpuload: cpu usage
  • wmbluemem: physical memory and swap usage
  • wmint: interrupt monitor

All of these are installed under /u/post/r, which resembles the root of a file system. To use them, it will probably be easiest to append /u/post/r/bin to your PATH environment variable. Important: never put directories writeable by any user at the front of your PATH!
