My primary environment is Linux. However, I switched from MS-DOS/Windows in November 1998, and so a large part of my programs were first developed for that platform. This page gives information of the MS-DOS tools I used. Most of these tools were actually ported to MS-DOS from GNU, and so they are more at home in Linux. This means that I may produce DOS ports of my future Linux programs as well.
|Operating system||MS-DOS/ MS-Windows||All programs are compiled to run in the MS-DOS box of Microsoft Windows.|
|Programming platform||environment||djgpp is a MS-DOS port of GNU C-compiler |
|Linking Fortran subroutines to C||f2c||Fortran is used in reading in Fortran-formatted data files and in some mathematical subroutines. F2c allows mixed development with C.|
|Numerical routines library||Numerical recipes||So far the only C library for Numerical Analysis I have found, but I'm working to replace this with some alternatives. With updates may be fairly good (I'm running v2.08 now: I had to patch to this version with my Unix-utilities, since automatic patching did not work).|
|Random number generation||ranlib.c||Again from netlib. Basic generator in gcc is OK, but with this it is possible to generate random numbers from several probability (density) functions.|
|Matrix algebra||Meschach||More reliable in matrix algebra than Numerical Recipes. For instance, SVD does not work correctly in NR, and they seem to have no intention to correct or even confess their bugs.|
|Presentation graphics||DISLIN||Basic graphics routines are provided by |
