Linux Software Map: Yorick Binaries

  • Version: 1.1
  • Entered-date: 1995-02-24
  • Description: Yorick is a very fast interpreted language designed for scientific computing and numerical analysis. The syntax is similar to C, but without declarative statements. This is a binary distribution for Linux. To install (as root), simply untar it in the / directory. Everything Yorick needs in order to run will be placed in the /usr/local tree. The documentation is included in /usr/local/src/yorick-1.1/Yorick/doc, /usr/local/man/man1, and /usr/local/info. In order to make the latter visible, you should merge /usr/local/info/yorick-dir with /usr/local/info/dir. Read the man pages for "yorick" and "gist" to get started.
  • Note:e: If you want to build your own compiled modules into Yorick to make a custom version, you will also need to install yorick-1.1.lib.tgz. If you want the source code, you can unpack yorick-1.1.tgz in /usr/local/src to merge it smoothly into the yorick-1.1.bin.tgz and yorick-1.1.lib.tgz binary distributions.

  • Platforms: Requires ANSI C compiler. Interactive graphics requires X window system. Tested on Sun (SunOS and Solaris), HP PA-RISC, IBM RS/6000, DEC alpha, SGI, Cray YMP, and Linux; should not be difficult to build on other UNIX machines.
  • Copying-policy: Freely Redistributable
Note: Not all entries contain correct, complete filenames or URLs. FTP sites often refuse connections due to excessive traffic. If you have difficulty with the provided links to individual files, try the first link, which is usually to a directory or web site for the program as a whole.
