Linux software - I to L


I

iBCS2
This allows you to run SCO, Wyse, and SVr4 binaries under Linux. I believe it's still in beta test stage.
[ftp://tsx-11.mit.edu/pub/linux/BETA/ibcs2/]
Icon
A high level general-purpose programming language with extensive features for processing strings (text) and data structures. It is an imperative, procedural language with a syntax reminiscent of C and Pascal but with semantics at a higher level. The source code is available as well as binaries for many machines, including an Icon Linux binary.

ILU
The Inter-Language Unification system is a multi-language object interface system. These interfaces hide implementation distinctions between different languages, address spaces, and operating systems. It can be used to build multi-lingual object-oriented libraries and well-specified language-independent interfaces, and also to implement distributed systems. The latest release (1.8) contains support for Common Lisp, C++, ANSI C, Modula-3 and Python, and it has been installed on many flavors of UNIX, including Linux.

ImageMagick
A package for the display and interactive manipulation of images for the X Window system. It is written in C and interfaces with the X library. In addition to the image display tool there are command line programs to describe the format and characteristics of an image, convert an image from one format to another, transform and image or a sequence of images, animate a sequence of images, combine one or more images, and several other tasks. Several image formats are supported, including JPEG, PNG, Tiff, Photo CD, etc. This should compile and install on a generic UNIX/W Window system, and binaries are available at sunsite.

InfoDock
An integrated productivity toolset that sits on top of XEmacs (formerly known as Lucid Emacs).
[ftp://cs.uiuc.edu/pub/xemacs/infodock]
IRAF
The Image Reduction and Analysis Facility is a general purpose software system for the reduction and analysis of scientific data. It includes a selection of programs for general image processing and graphics applications, plus a large number of programs for the reduction and analysis of optical astronomy data. It provides a complete programming environment, with a command language and a Fortran programming interface. Several ancillary packages are also available. It is freely available as source code or as a binary for IBM, Mac, DEC, HP. SGI, VMS, and Linux platforms.

J

JACAL
This is a symbolic mathematics system for the simplification and manipulation of equations and single and multiple valued algebraic expressions constructed of numbers, variables, radicals, and algebraic differential, and holonomic functions. JACAL is written in Scheme and uses the SLIB Scheme library as a portable platform. A Scheme implementation is needed to run JACAL, one of which is an interpreter called SCM available at the same location, although a compiler such as MIT Scheme would make things run much faster. The JACAL package name is of the form jacal*.tar.gz.

K

Kant (Komputer Algebra Number Theory)
Algebraic number theory software.
[ftp://elib.zib-berlin.de/pub/Kant/Kash/Binaries/]
Karma
A package for image and signal processing applications. It contains KarmaLib (a structured library and API) and a large number of modules (applications) to perform many standard tasks. The library is partitioned into several sections including routines to simplify the interface to the operating system, routines for a highly extensible and hierarchical data structure, and routines to display and manipulate images. It is written in C and the source code is available along with binaries for DEC Alpha, Convex, HP, Linux, SGI, DEC Ultrix, IBM, and Sun platforms.

L

LAM
The Local Area Multicomputer is an MPI programming environment and development system for a message-passing parallel machine constituted with heterogeneous UNIX computers on a network. With LAM, a dedicated cluster or an existing network computing infrastructure can act as one parallel computer solving one compute-intensive problem. It features a full MPI implementation, PVM compatibility, parallel I/O, and much more. LAM is portable to all UNIX machines, including Linux boxes.

LAPACK
A Fortran numerical methods library.
[ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/devel/fortran/]
Alt: [USA]
LASPACK
A package for solving large sparse systems of linear equations like those which arise from the discretization of PDEs. It contains classical as well as selected state-of-the-art algorithms which are commonly used for large sparse systems such as CG-like methods for non-symmetric systems and multilevel methods such as multigrid and conjugate gradient method preconditioned by multigrid and BPX preconditioners. It is written in ANSI C.
[ftp://casper.cs.yale.edu/mgnet/Codes/laspack/]
LASSPTools
A collection of UNIX utilities for numerical analysis and graphics. It is a set of more than 35 programs for assisting researchers with number crunching and dynamical display of graphics similarly to the way standard UNIX utilities assist with text processing. The source code is available along with binaries for Linux, IBM/AUX, PowerPC, and SUN platforms.

LaTeX2HTML
This is a project which attempts to translate LaTeX source code to which additional hypertext commands have been added directly to HTML. A LaTeX .sty file is used to translate the resulting source code to a .dvi file, and thus to hardcopy, while a large Perl script is used to translate the same into an HTML document. The main limitation is that one cannot do with an HTML document everything that one can do with a LaTeX document, i.e. HTML browsers can currently translate only a small subset of the typesetting commands available in LaTeX, although a surprising number of pragmatic rather than aesthetic things can be done. There is a LaTeX2HTML Archive Site which contains bug fixes and other relevant information. Quite a bit of work is being done by people other than the creator of LaTeX2HTML, Nikos Drakos, since he has left the employ of the organization for whom he originally created it and no longer has time to work on it.

[ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/devel/fortran/]
Alt: [USA]
libhelp
Libhelp is a hypertext help system with capability of browsing HTML + (gif-)images and directories. Libhelp is based on the HTML widget of NCSA version 2.4 (newer versions work too). It can be used with OSF/Motif(tm) based applications in an ANSI-C or C++ environment. It works with Linux (and others) and Motif 1.2.

Linux Gazette
An electronic publication in which John Fisk takes "all the ideas, suggestions, tips, tricks, and sundries that [he's] culled from numerous sources and present[s] them in a way to make it easy for others to try." Nice idea and nice execution. You also might want to try out his Linux Library and Linux Toybox, both reachable via his Linux HomeBoy WebPage.

Linux Journal
The official Web site of our favorite magazine, "The Linux Journal". It contains the full text of selected articles from the Journal (including the recent series on ELF), book reviews, supporting code from various articles, the Linux User Group list, the covers and tables of contents from all issues, and the manual for the Red Hat distribution.

Linux Programmer's Guide
This is an ongoing project to create a document containing all the gory details about how to create, modify and maintain programs for Linux systems. This points to the home page of the project. The latest version of the document can be found at the various Linux and mirror sites.
[http://www.bsn.usf.edu/~scottb/linux/lpg.html]
Linux Software List
This is, in an amazing feat of self-reference, a compressed (gzipped) version of this list. It may even be up to date. Do try to leave my name on the thing so as to properly feed and maintain my egomania.
[http://www-ocean.tamu.edu/~baum/linuxlist/linuxlist.html.gz]
Linux Software Map
A searchable index of software for Linux systems. One of the reasons I started the list you're reading was dissatisfaction with this software map, although it can be useful.
[http://siva.cshl.org/lsm/lsm.html]
Lollipop
A macro package that functions as a toolbox for writing TeX macros. It is an attempt to make structured text formatting available for environments where previously only WYSIWYG packages could be used because adapting the layout is so much easier with them than with traditional TeX macro packages (more about which can be found in the perennial TeX/WYSIWYG flame war taking place on the Net).
[ftp://cs.utk.edu/pub/eijkhout/tex/]
Lout
A typesetting system that produces PostScript output.

LPARX
This provides efficient run-time support for dynamic, non-uniform scientific calculations running on MIMD distributed memory architecture systems (one of which is a network of workstations running under PVM). It is intended for particle methods and adaptive multilevel finite difference methods such as adaptive mesh refinement.
[ftp://cs.ucsd.edu/pub/baden/lparx/]
lxb
A Linux X11/Motif GUI builder. You can build a GUI made of Motif widgets instantiated by clicking on icons, move and resize them with the mouse, edit their resources, and move about in the widget hierarchy via the arrow keys. Once the GUI is built, the C source files, an X resource file and a makefile are built. This is software still in the development process and as such is not yet fully functional.

Lynx
A fully featured line-mode Web browser for those connected to the Web via cursor-addressable, character-cell terminals or emulators, e.g. VT 100 terminals and emulators. The W3C Line Mode Browser is another line-mode browser available for Linux platforms.
[http://kufacts.cc.ukans.edu/about_lynx/about_lynx.html]
Lyx (formerly Lyrix)
A word processor based on LaTeX. It can export a document to its own internal format or to LaTeX format, and you can embed TeX commands for formulas or pictures which are processed with the document. This is going through a name change (due to a conflict with the original name Lyrix) and the file is now named noname*. Further information can be found a the Lyrix Information Site.
