Public Domain Software for the SGI Platform

List of Visited FTP Sites Containing
Public Domain Software for the SGI Platform

The following list was compiled by Bill Henderson of Silicon Graphics. The list consists of known archives that contain Public Domain software for SGI machines that is available via ftp. We are reasonably satisfied the software listed below is "make-able" and "run-able" "as is" on SGI machines with very little or no tweaking necessary. The ftp sites include both source and executables of GL and X-based software, as well as some non-graphical software. Have fun, and if you have any feedback (good or bad) on the list or the software you find in the list we would like to hear about it.

If you have any additions or corrections to this list, please send them to Email.
