All the typical UNIX utilities for job control, file manipulation, networking (ssh, sftp, etc) and C compilation and debugging can be found on each of the department systems, as well as a lot of public domain software.
Some directories worth mentioning are:
The files under the /usr/local/contrib directory are installed and maintained by faculty and students and are not supported by the department. If you would like to see a package installed in this directory, first clear it with the tech staff by sending e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. If approved, you will be asked to build the package for all department architectures; not just the one you usually use./usr/local/bin - contains host dependent software not part of
standard UNIX and may vary from machine to machine
/usr/local/X11/bin - contains host dependent X11 software
/usr/local/contrib - contains user contributed & maintained software
