In addition to the standard Unix commands available on almost every Unix-like system, Grex provides additional software applications useful for computer programming, editing, and producing documentation. Grex also has a few applications for statistics, numerical computation, and graphing. This list is not intended to include every application or program on Grex. If you don't see something, ask or use the 'which' command at the command line.
