install packages & check the list of installed programs/languages/applications
I need the following packages for a simulation :
• GNU tools for text processing (usually installed in all Linux systems
• Bash interpreter
• Python programming language
• Java virtual machine
• Java compiler (required if MLLFScheduler recompilation is needed)
• GCC C/C++ compiler
how can I install them and how can I make sure whether they already exists in my machine or not?
also, how can I check the list of installed programs/applications/languages etc.?
also which directory should I use mostly for installing any new thing?
should I use the home folder, or any other folder...I mean,which is the most convenient and useful? ( like in windows, all programs are installed in c drive)
thank you for the patience and attention.
