<body>
<h2>Software Packages on SDF by Category</h2>
<p>This page is intended to present the many, many software packages &amp;
programs currently installed on SDF, sorted into categories for ease of
reference. New users can refer to this file when trying to find programs, and
even long-time SDFers can possibly discover something new here.</p>
<p>Note that this list is not expected to contain every single package
currently installed. For a complete list of packages on SDF, see <a
href="http://sdf.org/index.cgi?software">here</a>. For a complete
list of software that <i>could</i> be installed see <a href="ftp://ftp.NetBSD.org/pub/pkgsrc/current/pkgsrc/README-all.html">here</a>. Software requests are
made by making a post on the 'bboard' <REQUESTS> board.</p>
<p>Programs marked "ARPA", "MetaARPA", "DBA", or similar can only be run by
users with the specified membership level.</p>
<p><b>Note:</b> If you are planning on adding to this file, you are advised to
follow the <a href="#rules">recommendations below</a>.

</ul>
<h4 id="rules">Guidelines for Maintaining This File</h4>
<ul>
<li>Only programs that are located in the default users' PATH should be listed
here; i.e., user-written software in <tt>/sys/sdf/bin</tt> should be left
out.</li>
<li>Custom commands specific to SDF should be left out. There is already a
list of them <a
href="http://jwodder.freeshell.org/sdf/commands.html">here</a>.</li>
<li>Make sure that a program is currently installed by seeing whether it exists
in the PATH (e.g., with "<tt>command -v program</tt>" or "<tt>finbin
program</tt>"). There are many programs that don't have manual pages, and in
some cases there may be manual pages left behind from old programs that were
uninstalled.</li>
<li>While you don't have to, it would be nice if you included a brief
description of what each command does along with a link to its official project
page (if any).</li>
<li>Be sure to list membership requirements for programs that only ARPA or
MetaARPA users can run.</li>
<li>Try to only list programs that fall into a specific category. You may add
a new category if you feel one is needed, but only if you can find more than
one program that fits into the new category (three or four programs seems like
a good minimum, but we won't force you to follow this rule).</li>
<li>If you don't know what a program does (at least not well enough to place it
into a category), don't add it.</li>
<li>If several closely-related programs come together as part of the same
package (e.g., <tt>strfile</tt> and <tt>unstr</tt> with <tt>fortune</tt>, or all
of the GhostScript programs), only give the name of the main program.</li>
<li>If a program currently just doesn't work (e.g., <tt>hnb</tt>), don't list
it here.</li>
