jgraph

*download (98 Kb)
Version: 83-9 Last modified: Tue Feb 18 08:59:05 1997
Architecture: i386
Maintainer:
Rob Browning <osiris@cs.utexas.edu>
Description:
Jim Plank's program for producing PostScript graphs Jgraph takes a description of a graph or graphs and produces a postscript file on the standard output.

Jgraph is ideal for plotting any mixture of scatter point graphs, line graphs, and/or bar graphs, and embedding the output into LaTeX, or any other text processing system which can read postscript.

The graph description language is simple enough to get nice looking graphs with a minimum of effort, yet powerful enough to give the user the flexibility to tailor the appearance of the graph to his or her individual preferences. This includes plotting multiple graphs and laying them out separately on the page (or pages).

Depends:
libc5 (>= 5.4.17-1)

dc

*download (25 Kb)
Version: 1.03-14 Last modified: Sat Feb 15 11:39:34 1997
Architecture: i386
Maintainer:
James Troup <jjtroup@comp.brad.ac.uk>
Description:
An arbitrary precision reverse-polish calculator. Dc is a reverse-polish desk calculator which supports unlimited precision arithmetic. It also allows you to define and call macros. Normally dc reads from the standard input; if any command arguments are given to it, they are filenames, and dc reads and executes the contents of the files before reading from standard input. All normal output is to standard output; all error output is to standard error.

A reverse-polish calculator stores numbers on a stack. Entering a number pushes it on the stack. Arithmetic operations pop arguments off the stack and push the results.

libc5 (>= 5.4.0-0)

Description:
An arbitrary precision calculator language. `bc' is an interactive algebraic language with arbitrary precision. GNU `bc' follows the POSIX 1003.2 draft standard, with several extensions including multi-character variable names, an `else' statement and full Boolean expressions. GNU `bc' does not require the separate `dc' program.

Maintainer:
Karl Sackett <krs@debian.org>
Description:
Library functions for arithmetic on large integers. freeLIP is a package containing a variety of functions for arithmetic on arbitrary length signed integers. These functions allow easy prototyping and experimentation with new number theory-based cryptographic protocols. freeLIP is the large integer package used in the global collaboration to factor the 129-digit number RSA-129 and thereby solve a 17-year old challenge in cryptography.

yorick

*download (1010 Kb)
Version: 1.3-3 Last modified: Fri Jan 17 17:06:53 1997
Architecture: i386
Maintainer:
David H. Munro <munro@icf.llnl.gov>
Description:
interpreted language for number crunching + array syntax for fast scientific computing + scientific graphics to X, PostScript, and binary CGM
- includes gist binary CGM browser + gigabyte-scale I/O to binary data files
- automatically translates number formats among all architectures
- handles PDB and netCDF self-descriptive binary formats

You need GhostScript for Yorick's eps command to work. You can import Yorick generated EPS graphics into xfig in order to add annotations more easily than in Yorick.

Depends:
libc5 (>= 5.4.13-1), xlib6 (>= 3.2-0)

yorick-gist

*download (100 Kb)
Version: 1.3-3 Last modified: Fri Jan 17 17:06:36 1997
Architecture: i386
Maintainer:
David H. Munro <munro@icf.llnl.gov>
Description:
CGM graphics file browser only You can display binary CGMs to X, and write PostScript or CGM output. Gist is tuned to work best with Yorick-generated CGMs. Since CGM is not a page description (PostScript is), non-Yorick CGMs may not display exactly as intended. In general, you should avoid CGMs for this reason.

If you install the yorick package, you get gist as well; this package is only for those who want gist but not yorick.

Depends:
libc5 (>= 5.4.13-1), xlib6 (>= 3.2-0)

David H. Munro <munro@icf.llnl.gov>
Description:
interpreted language development package You need this in order to be able to build custom versions of the Yorick interpreter which call compiled functions you write.

The yorick source package contains complicated examples of Yorick packages (including the MPY message passing Yorick which is not a part of this binary distribution); a simple example is in /usr/doc/examples/yorick. You may well need the source package to figure out how to get the most out of this development package.
