Tools for Physics

If you grew up on some form of classic fortran and need to be jolted into the 21st century, here is a good place to start.

On the Macintosh running MacOS X, the output of Gnuplot and some other graphics programs can be displayed with Aquaterm, an alternative that doesn't require starting up X Windows.
