#!wml -owin32.html #include "frame.wmi" #Desc: This page is just a linklist of useful win32 programs. <font color="<<COLOR__C>>" size="+1"><b>Useful win32 Programs</b></font> <p>  This page offers some links to useful win32 programs that you might need if you have no other chance to use a different platform. It is done because I once had a similar page at my last working place at Siemens, mainly for personal purpose. But I think it might also be useful for others - especially because I don't need it anymore myself :-) </p> <ul> <li><a href="http://kmeleon.org/">K-Meleon</a>: The win32 answer to <a href="http://galeon.sourceforge.net/">galeon</a>. K-Melon is a gecko (the <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/">Mozilla</a> rendering engine) based lightweight webbrowser. Quite promising though still in a quite early developement state.</li> <li><a href="http://www.gimp.org/win32/">GIMP</a>: The marvelous graphic program. On that page you can download the .zip file for installing it. <font size="-1">(<i><link gimp>homepage</link></i>)</font></li> <li><a href="http://www.vim.org/">Vi Improved</a>: This is a texteditor that has lots of features hardly found in any other editor that is available for win32. It has a high learning curve but once you managed to handle the basic functions you won't use any other editor anymore.</li> <li><a href="http://slrn-w32.de.vu/">slrn</a>: This is the download page for the win32 version of <link slrn>slrn</link>, a great textbased newsreader. It is greatly customizeable, colorful and threaded. And it let's you choose your favorite textedior and doesn't provide it's own. <font size="-1">(<i><link slrn>homepage</link></i>)</font></li> <li><a href="ftp://ei5nazha.yz.yamagata-u.ac.jp/w3m/binary/">w3m</a>: This is a pager/text-based webbrowser that can render tables, use color and let's you define your own keybindings. Furthermore it's quite small and quick. <font size="-1">(<i><link w3m>homepage</link></i>)</font></li> <li><link putty>PuTTY</link>: The only one real useful ssh/telnet client for win32. Open Source of course (GPL). Don't use anything else if you need to connect to a *nix system (what else ;). You will be able to use all the special keys, see the connection protocol and have full xterm/rxvt color support. What else do you need? scp of course - it's also available from there. sftp is currently in development, AFAIK.</li> <li><a href="http://www.irssi.org/?page=download">irssi</a>: A textbased irc client that really beats them all. It is has great default settings and is featureful. Specially it is easily extensible through perl scripts. That make it somewhat universal :) <font size="-1">(<i><link irssi>homepage</link></i>)</font></li> </ul> <p>  That's all, folks! ...at least for the moment. </p>
