Listed below are the various proprietary software packages that are on the C.S. departmental network, available for all faculty, staff, and students. On Solaris machines, these programs can be found in the /usr/prop directory; please include /usr/prop/bin in your PATH in order to launch the commands. On Linux machines available packages will be located in /usr/pkg, but the executables will be linked to /usr/local/bin; this directory is included by default in the departmental dotfiles.
The Acrobat package includes Acrobat Distiller, Acrobat Exchange, and Acrobat Reader. The Distiller program creates PDF (Portable Document Format) documents from PostScript. The Exchange program lets you view and modify PDF documents. The Reader program is a PDF viewer.
