"Single Channel" analysis:

QuB

There are issues of course, but very powerful & has a great support forum.

"Single Channel" analysis:

Tracwin

Very useful, especially for event detection and fitting

Stimtor aquisition

Simple & Effective. A little outdated now. Ran well under DOS or Win 98

DC suite...

Very powerful, loads of features, but a steep learning curve. I'm still writing software to convert my data to this format, but some ways to go yet!

Statistics

 

 

 

Excel/MS Visual Basic

Flexible, if you have the time, but most test now availavle with comercial packages.

 

 

StatsDirect

Excellent for testing, I think could become a rival for Prism?

MS Visual Java

Since Microsoft don't support this anymore, itís become a bit pointless.

Not bad for speed, fairly portable

 Now using the Beans thing...

 

Netbeans Java

Actually very good.I was surprised for some reason, but we were able to rejuvenate most of our Java code with this.

here

Unix C++ (various!)

Great for high speed numerical simulations, but graphics tricky

 

 

MS Excel/Visual Basic

Very slow, but so easy(!!) we're using this increasingly.

 

 

Turbo C++, MS Visual C++ 6.0

Our standards; both are flexible and still produce pretty fast code.

 

 

 Bio-informatics

 

 

 

 Perl of course...

ActivePerl

 Makes those strings so much easier to plough through, but any old Perl will do.
