Sfinx scripts

Many scripts are provided, for various uses.

Startup scripts for applications

For most of the installed software packages, a simple startup script takes care of setting up the environment and loading the package. In most cases, this takes the place of the sometimes very elaborate setups that are given with the package, to be added to the user's environment, possibly clashing with other packages. In other words, in order to run any of these packages, you don't have to follow setup instructions, but they just work by typing the command name.
