New geek software

[Note: this post contains computer nerd content.]

Via osx.iusethis.com, I have recently discovered several useful applications for Mac OS X.

  1. Eigenmath is a basic computer algebra system that can handle, among other things, limits, differentiation and integration. It is free and open-source. There is also a Windows version.
  2. SimpleTeX4ht is a frontend for, you guessed it, TeX4ht, the command-line utility that converts LaTeX files to XHTML. It, too, is open-source.
  3. Doodim is a productivity app that darkens the background so you can focus on the current application. Great GTD utility.
