understand 1.4


I saw this program in a magazine and would like to find it. Foolish me didn't write the address down and I have hunted everywhere I can think of. Anyone know where to find this program? I think the magazine was Linux Format or something like that.

Help us help you. What does the program do? In what issue of the magazine did you see it? For that matter, can you not just look at the magazine again?

My searches turned up nothing including a search of the Linux Format magazine website.

it was an issue I was looking through at Border's. I'm not there and I suppose I can check when I go there next. It is a prgram that let's you un-compile (if that is a word) programs but it also formats code. There was more it looked interesting and I just thought that I would download it when I got home. I couldn't find it though. I found it mentioned here: http://msa.section.me.uk/lxf/ but there was no link to it.

Great link, very useful. Could you now tell us in which issue is it mentioned on that site? We are not a vague search engine, I probably have the issue sitting right next to me - but I do not feel like reading through all of the issues to find one program.

OK, it appears we are a vague search reference. Page 24 of the Christmas 2004 issue of Linux Format has it.

The mag says it's not free (as in no cost) - 1 licence is $695 Fortran/$495 C/C++ for download. 5 licences are $2,795/$1,975 and 10 are $3,950/$2,950. These are for downloads, the cd is an extra $20.

Understand 1.4 is a source code analyser and reverse engineering tool available for several languages. Alternatives are Doxygen and Linux Cross-Reference.

Website is www.scitools.com - the licence is proprietary.

ok thanks that's what I get for just browsing. i appreciate the lookup for me though. I thought it was a GPL program for some reason, maybe because it was a linux magazine

Ah, that old chestnut Linux can have both proprietary and non-proprietary software. As long as the proprietary stuff doesn't contravene the GPL all is ok.
