New software installed: gcc4, octave, libs

New software has been installed on the cluster nodes. It’s mostly development libraries plus the GCC compiler suite version 4 and GNU Octave.

In order to use the GCC 4 compiler suite, you have to append a “4” to the usual command names (e.g. g++4).

From the octave website:

GNU Octave is a high-level language, primarily intended for numerical computations. It provides a convenient command line interface for solving linear and nonlinear problems numerically, and for performing other numerical experiments using a language that is mostly compatible with Matlab. It may also be used as a batch-oriented language.

Here’s the full list of new software including version numbers:

  • curl-devel-7.12.1-8.rhel4
  • e2fsprogs-devel-1.35-12.4.EL4
