             High Quality Free Scientific Software
*****************************************************************

The LinUX-X-Windows (a  free  32  bit  operative  system for PCs)
environment has evolved quite fast and is no longer exclusive for
the programmming oriented scientists.  Those of you  with  either
tight  budgets or who think the cost-effectiveness and or quality
of commercial software is bad  should, definitely, have a look on
a Scientific Software List I have compiled  [see  details  below,
1].

The  aforementioned  list  intends  to  make  juniors   and   the
scientific  community  as  a  whole  aware on the availability of
*high quality* scientific software,  copyrighted  but free of any
license fees whatsoever for non-commercial purposes.

LinUX, the operating system, may be freely retrieved from several
mirror  sites  around  the  world  and  will  run  on  IBM-PC  or
compatibles with a 386 CPU or higher and a minimum  of  4  Mb  of
RAM.  Further, it seems the flagships running under LinUX are the
GIS applications.

Contents of the compiled list [If you wish  a  copy,  follow  the
instructions below, 2]:

[1] Software items classified under the following categories  are
described.   Further,  FTP  and  Web  sites where to download the
packages is specified.  Volume of the  file is 190 Kb.  [Source =
The Linux Machine].

Software categories [number of described items between brackets]:

    NEW (Dec 96) [43];
    MATHS & STATS [56];
    SIGNAL, DATA AND IMAGE PROCESSING/VISUALIZATION, GIS [39];
    MISC. SC. APPL. [26];
    CAD, GRAPH, DRAWING AND MODELING TOOLS [31];
    PROGRAMMING TOOLS [56];
    SCIENTIFIC DATA PLOTTING PACKAGES [14];
    GENERAL PURPOSE GRAPHIC LIBRARIES [16];
    WORD PROCESSING, TYPESETTING AND OFFICE SOFTWARE [20];
    X-WINDOW GUI CONSTRUCTION [21];
    OTHER [31].

[2] If you wish a  copy  of  the  compiled  list, you may send an
e-mail message to [log in to unmask]  with  the
key  word  LINUX  on  the  _subject  field_.   Once the number of
incoming requests stabilizes, the  list  will ship.  Please, make
sure yo _do not_ use the  automatic  reply  to  respond  to  this
message.  Thank you and enjoy.  Cheers, Aldo-Pier Solari/lo.
