Software Downloads

by Dominic Ford

In my spare time I've written several open source software utilities, mostly for the Linux operating system, which are freely available for download below under the Gnu General Public License Version 2:

Pyxplot
Latest Release: 0.9.2
(2012 Sep 19)

Pyxplot is a multi-purpose command-line tool for performing simple data processing and for producing graphs and vector graphics. Its interface borrows a substantial amount of syntax from gnuplot, but with very substantial extensions. Pyxplot has its own website. The latest public release is 0.9.2 (2012 Sep 19).

GrepNova
Latest Release: 0.6.0
(2005 Nov 1)

GrepNova is a utility for amateur supernova patrolling, which aligns new images to overlay reference images, and blinks them for easy visual comparison. Amongst others, amateur supernova hunter Tom Boles of the Coddenham Observatory uses this software, and as of November 2011 has discovered 50 supernovae using it. Binaries provided for Win32; C source code available with Linux automake script. This program was described in a paper in the Journal of the British Astronomical Association.
