[04] WHAT PROGRAMS AND UTILITIES ARE AVAILABLE TO STUDENTS?

     This is not a complete list of all the programs and utilities that
     are available.  Listing those would be really beyond the scope of
     the faq.  However, in /sys/classroom there some very specific 
     programs that are most useful to students learning UNIX programming.
     Normally these programs are only reserve for ARPA member use.

     For more details on these tools, have your students run 'man program'

     gcc (2.95.3)  Has slowly become the standard in C/C++ development
                   under UNIX.  It is not always the best choice for 
                   any occasion, but you'll find it everywhere.

     python (2.5)  An object oriented programming language that has
                   a very strict, but intuitive syntax.

     perl (5.8.8)  Its everywhere you go today.  The number of modules
                   available make programming in perl a thing of the past

     ruby (1.8.5)  A relatively new programming language which is 
                   designed with the web in mind

     lisp (8.3.0)  One of the oldest and most powerful programming languages
                   still widely used today.
     
     php (5.1.6)   A near object oriented C like programming language which
                   is most useful for generating HTML.

     rcs (5.7)     RCS (Revision Control System) is a good way for 
                   students to learn about file versioning under UNIX.

     mysql (5.0)   Each instructor and student is given their own SQL
                   database and login.
