# Description

gnuplot running on android.

Need ATE (android terminal emulator) installed before you install this to work - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jackpal.androidterm&feature=nav_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDMsImphY2twYWwuYW5kcm9pZHRlcm0iXQ..

This app is no longer the plotting engine for Octave. Get the Octave Gnuplot Package instead (com.octave.gnuplot).

You must install this app before submitting a review.

Google Play reviews now use Google+ so it's easier to see opinions from people you care about. New reviews will be publicly linked to your Google+ profile. Your name on previous reviews now appears as "A Google User".

Awesome This is a beatiful example of the power of open source. It's still buggy for me, but amazing anyway. For those complaining about the keyboard check out Messagease. I can type text at 60 WPM, and all symbols are mapped to the keyboard (including arrows).

User reviews

No command history (arrow keys do not work) Could actually be usefully if the arrow keys works and allowed use of command history.

Need to update Its pretty good compared to other plotting apps. It will be better if it comes with more GUI in later updates.

Fantastic One of the pioneers bringing the wealth of opensource applications to android.

# What's New

Ok, Jelly Bean 4.2 should work now. Will only work from default user (0). Jelly Bean 4.2 supports multiple users. A more robust solution will be required later, but this should work for almost everyone.

Now have Octave built for Android, moving this soon to a separate app called "octave" (clever...I know). You can go checkout the first version soon. Addi will be going back to being solely java based and small and not very feature rich, while octave will be the real deal, but much larger.

## Symbolic

Symbolic is just another GUI for the immense powerful Reduce computer algebra system which is open source software created by many programmers during several decades. You may find lots of examples and tutorials about Reduce in the internet.

This app is based on code provided by Ahmad M. Akra and Prof. Arthur C. Norman (Codemist Ltd. JLisp, precompiled Reduce engine and most of the Latex formatting feature) who published the app AndroidReduce and made available the corresponding source code via sourceforge.net (great, many thanks!).

You may choose between single line and multiline input. In single line mode you may omit closing parentheses and/or the semicolon, but in multiline mode you have to take care of matching parentheses by yourself and explicitly type in a semicolon for telling Reduce that the expression is complete. Multiline mode is convenient for breaking down more complex expressions into several lines and always applies to reading script files. Processing starts when tapping the Go button (if visible) or the Done or Next button of the soft keyboard.

In Settings you find some options to modify the look of the output (preferred width, font size, text or latex).

You may process Reduce scripts stored in files (*.red or *.txt) with ease. Just enter a filename in the input field and tap menu-entry Read to execute it. Or save your precious work by tapping Save. When saving, the tex formatted output fields go to png-files with increasing numbers added to the original file name. But this only works for output fields not too big. Plain text outputs go to a text-file along with the corresponding input expressions. This may be useful for later processing the results in Latex or similar text processing tools.

If you do not know the exact filename containing your desired script just leave the input field empty (e.g. tap Clr button) and tap menu-entry Read to reveal a file selector box showing the files in the actually chosen directory.

Choosing a file only copies the filename to the input text field. Don\'t forget to tap Read again (or the Go button, if visible) to actually start processing the script file because you still have the option to add "in " before the filename to let Reduce process the whole file at once (what is mostly faster).

Tapping Clr or Go or Done during reading a script file will terminate processing the file. But the definitions realized so far stay valid in Reduce till you Reset Reduce.

The directory to read from or to save to may be defined via Settings. This global directory is also valid for in and out statements of Reduce itself. But nested input files do need complete pathnames along with "in" or "out" or "shut".

You may also modify some cosmetic features like background and text colors and the availability of the Clear and Go button which may support an efficient workflow. The settings get saved once you finish Settings with OK and are available next time you start the program.\n\n

So, happy calculating!

Please report bugs, questions and comments to Dieter Egger (dr.egger@alice.de).

## GNURoot

GNURoot provides a method for you to install and use GNU/Linux distributions and their associated applications/packages alongside Android.

This does NOT require root.

A regular uninstall fully cleans up after this application.

This is expandable and you will be able to install your own applciations/packages.

Inside GNURoot, you can create a root file system), launch into it, or delete it.

Read the description of the GNURoot Wheezy, Gentoo, Fedora or Aboriginal apps in the Play Store to get some hints on how to get started using them.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=champion.gnuroot.wheezy

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=champion.gnuroot.gentoo

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=champion.gnuroot.fedora

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=champion.gnuroot.aboriginal

The moto is: "This ain't done, until everything* will run"

*everything == all linux, user space applications, without having to root your device. Some things (a small number of things), that actually require root will not work (like inserting a kernel module).

Key goals:

Choice or GNU/Linux rootfs to start with:

Currently two choices, many more to come.

All applications that don't absolutely require root should function as normal:

apt-get now working.

Following step is to get a graphical interface for the desktop, terminal and applications. Currently, only launches an Android Terminal Emulator. Proof of concept done. Refinement left.

Make this work nicely alongside Android:

Already works like a "normal" application.

Next step is to provide useful intents for users and applications (with permissions) to use.

Provide proper support and bug fixes:

Release a pay-what-you-want model, so more time can be put into this. Now in place. Decide whether it should be mandatory.

Improve performance:

Minimize the performance effect of the tricks used to make this all work. Quite good now.

Reduce Footprint:

Move as much as possible to the sdcard.

Only install what is necessary and let the user grow it from there.

Support multiple architectures:

Only arm supported. No reason why MIPS and x86 cannot be supported too.

The roots mostly contain GPL code, but for this launcher I am the copyright holder and it is not under the GPL, but instead the Apache v2. It contains a modified version of the Android Terminal Emulator, which is also under the Apache v2.

Please: file bugs, feature requests of view code here:

https://github.com/corbinlc/gnuroot

## Octave

This is launches Octave for Android. Octave is like Matlab (trademark of Mathworks), but free (as in freedom) software. Not some similar program, but really Octave running natively.

The app is now free (as in $) to use, but a donation is appreciated to keep things going.

You are required to get the Octave Main Package (com.octave.main) to use this.

You are required to get the Octave Gnuplot Package (com.octave.gnuplot) to support plotting.

There are many additional packages (com.octave.*) for use.

This is a different sort of app. Unpacking the executable and other files necessary for Octave to run will take awhile when you install or upgrade this, but will be worth it. Whether this is installed to the sdcard or to internal storage, the executables and libraries will take up around 100MB of internal storage either way.

You can add .m files and a .octaverc startup file in an external storage directory setup for you. Often at /sdcard/GNUOctave/home.

Your latest plots (.png files) can be found in an external storage directory setup for you. Often at /sdcard/GNUOctave/intents.

You will be running in a fake chroot of sorts which includes Octave and many of the programs you expect to find in a standard GNU/Linux (read Debian) install. The fake chroot is split between your external/shared partition (often /sdcard) and your internal (/data/data/com.octave) to save space.

Plot commands and edit commands fire off intents to use whatever image viewer or text editor you have.

See Octave Documentation:

http://www.gnu.org/software/octave/doc/interpreter/

See the FAQ:

https://github.com/corbinlc/octave4android/wiki/FAQ

File bugs and feature requests here:

https://github.com/corbinlc/octave4android/issues

See code here for packages here:

https://github.com/corbinlc/octave4android

This launcher is licensed under the Apache License 2.0.

No GPL licensed code is found within this app, but is found in the packages needed to run.

## GNURoot Wheezy

Allows you to create and launch a Debian Wheezy rootfs without rooting your device when used along with GNURoot (champion.gnuroot).

Primarily, I install packages with apt-get (http://linux.die.net/man/8/apt-get) and I suggest you do the same). To use apt-get you will need to click the "Launch as Fake Root" checkbox. A good place to start is to do:

apt-get update

apt-get upgrade

Then start working. If you find out that something you need is not installed, just apt-get it. To install less, do this:

apt-get install less

That is pretty obvious, but sometimes it is not. You can use a search engine (like google to help you out). For example, I found out to install R, I should do this:

apt-get install r-base

You can also search for packages using

apt-cache search some_keyword

A very popular package to add right away is this one:

apt-get install build-essential

This gets you setup to run the make and compile steps of many SW projects.

## Corbin Champion US$1 Payment

My Android applications will now be supported by a "pay what you want" system. You can choose your price US$1 - US$50 in US$1 increments.

The first app that will be migrated to this system will be Octave, followed by others.

While this may be disappointing for some, I have realized that giving this work away free (as in $) doesn't serve your or my interests well. It is clear from users that they love what I have done, but want more features and better support. It bothers me significantly that I am not able to provide it because of time and money constraints. This will not be about making a lot of money, this will simply be about creating a better project by paying for developer time going forward.

By the way, if you have paid previously via the Play Store for any of my apps, no additional charge is required. Also, paying one amount will cover your usage of all of my apps, which will all adopt the same payment system.

How money is spent (after Google gets their cut):

10% (or more): Donated to Free or Open projects that my works is dependent on.

10% (or more): To the Lord's work (humanitarian work).

Remaining: Developer time

There is pretty much 0 overhead for the work I do.

## GNURoot WheezyX (xterms)

Like GNURoot Wheezy but supports xterms, and launches a vncserver at launch.

You can connect to this simple graphical desktop via your favorite vncviewer on your android device or another device on your network (like a PC). The default password is "password".

There seems to be an issue with most android vnc viewers. If you zoom too far out, your device may no longer respond to touches. I need to figure this out, but for now, don't zoom out bigger than the desktop. Stay zoomed in. Don't beat me up about this, but do be warned and please do file bugs and feature requests.

That is pretty obvious, but sometimes it is not. You can use a search engine (like google to help you out). For example, I found out to install R, I should do this:

apt-get install r-base

You can also search for packages using

apt-cache search some_keyword

A very popular package to add right away is this one:

apt-get install build-essential

This gets you setup to run the make and compile steps of many SW projects.

## GNURoot Fedora Remix

Allows you to create and launch a Fedora rootfs without rooting your device when used along with GNURoot (champion.gnuroot).

Primarily, I install packages with yum (http://linux.die.net/man/8/yum) and I suggest you do the same). To use yum you will need to click the "Launch as Fake Root" checkbox. A good place to start is to do:

yum update (this may take quite a while).

Then start working. If you find out that something you need is not installed, just yum install it. To install less, do this:

yum install less

That is pretty obvious, but sometimes it is not. You can use a search engine (like google) to help you out.

You can also search for packages using

yum search some_keyword

"Fedora" is a trademark of Red Hat, Inc.

This is not part of the Fedora project and is not directed or managed by Fedora project.

## Corbin Champion US$10 Payment

My Android applications will now be supported by a "pay what you want" system. You can choose your price US$1 - US$50 in US$1 increments.

The first app that will be migrated to this system will be Octave, followed by others.

While this may be disappointing for some, I have realized that giving this work away free (as in $) doesn't serve your or my interests well. It is clear from users that they love what I have done, but want more features and better support. It bothers me significantly that I am not able to provide it because of time and money constraints. This will not be about making a lot of money, this will simply be about creating a better project by paying for developer time going forward.

By the way, if you have paid previously via the Play Store for any of my apps, no additional charge is required. Also, paying one amount will cover your usage of all of my apps, which will all adopt the same payment system.

How money is spent (after Google gets their cut):

10% (or more): Donated to Free or Open projects that my works is dependent on.

10% (or more): To the Lord's work (humanitarian work).

Remaining: Developer time

There is pretty much 0 overhead for the work I do.

## Tiny Utils

Android Terminal Emulator, BusyBox, Frotz, Perl and SSH via Dropbear (dropbear just added, so need to do more testing with it) without rooting your device.

Tiny Utils combines tiny versions of many common and useful GNU/UNIX utilities and terminal into a single small Android application. It provides replacements for most of the utilities you usually find in GNU fileutils, shellutils, and more.

Tiny Utils installs BusyBox, microperl (a small perl interpreter), patchelf, frotz (so you can play Z code interactive fiction games) and dropbear an SSH client and server. Tiny Utils also includes the Android Terminal Emulator within it, so you have a nice, proven work environment where you can use all this capability.

Tiny Utils is not all business though as it now has frotz which allows you to play z-code games. See the screen shots of examples of downloading and playing a couple of popular games (Zork and Spider and Web). Given how nice the Android Terminal Emulator is, I think this might be the best environment for playing z code games.

All combined, this give you many of the commands you are used to having while working at a GNU/Linux Terminal.

Find the full list of BusyBox commands here: http://www.busybox.net/downloads/BusyBox.html

Also, Tiny Utils does not require you to have a rooted device to install it. Being such, it does not modify your Android system at all and can be uninstalled in a normal fashion. While some commands, like chroot, or su, require you to have root permissions, the most commonly used commands do not.

Known limitations:

Some commands, require rooting your device to work properly.

Some commands will not work as expected because Android is not GNU/Linux (tell me what you need/want if it is not working, so I can prioritize).

All that said, your device will get a LOT more useful and powerful with this installed.

Source code is posted and I will be posting many examples (over time) of awesome ways you can use this here: https://github.com/corbinlc/tinyutils

Please provide feedback. Rate it and tell others if you think it is good. If you run into any problems please file an issue here https://github.com/corbinlc/tinyutils/issues so I can get any details I need and so you can track progress on the issue.

Also, if you have any suggestions/contributions that you think will improve this further, don't be shy. While I am charging for this, I am doing so minimally to make sure this continues to be supported and improved going forward and I am pretty sure this will be worth more to you than what is being charged.
