Latest freeware

June 2000:

Plot w(z) and... view(z) is a system to create and view plots of functions of a complex variable on a spherical surface that maps conformally to the one-point compactification  ¢ U {oo}

Other recent freeware

March 2000:

fracFour is a Windows program to explore the fractional  powers of the Fourier transform: a generalisation of the usual FT, morphing smoothly between time and frequency domains (!) (Note: since writing this program i found out the term "fractional Fourier transform" is already in use for something else. This is NOT that. Sorry about that <g>)

December 1999:

xpng 0.01, fixpng 0.00 Rudimentary PNG tools. So many wonderful graphics packages that do PNG, so few that do transparent, you want to get rid of your GIFs... xpng (½ K) adds a tRNS chunk to make color 0 transparent. Simple.
And now you've edited palettes or other stuff in a hex editor, and that CRC chexum doesn't tally anymore... fixpng (1 K) checks and optionally fixes the CRC's. Alternatively, just use it to view those extra chunks embedded in your PNGs.

eqn 0.00 Having had fun recently with the classical cubic and quartic equation formulæ, i coded them. Some accuracy enhancement workarounds. Had a go at doing the operator overloading thing (C++ can be fun after all ;-) 48 K. My shiney new complex class, and other source, are of course available.

polymath 0.00 is a simple util to do symbolic multiplication of a number of polynomials in a number of variables. This one may yet grow into a more comprehensive tool. DOS and Linux versions.

March 1999:

Latest version of rotate stands at 2.20ß
