babel-1.2.0 package information
Scientific Interface Definition Language (SIDL) compiler
Babel is a compiler for the Scientific Interface Definition Language (SIDL), currently under development as a support tool for parallel simulation codes. SIDL is in the same "phylum" as CORBA or COM, but with an eye toward future extension to data redistribution on massively parallel architectures. In addition, because of the large amount of existing and very important scientific code written in FORTRAN, SIDL is designed with support for that language in mind. Babel is written in Java, and currently has backends for: FORTRAN, C, C++, Java and Python.
More information about apt-get remove
Advanced Package Tool, or APT, is a free software user interface that works with core libraries to handle the installation and removal of software on Debian, Ubuntu and other Linux distributions. APT simplifies the process of managing software on Unix-like computer systems by automating the retrieval, configuration and installation of software packages, either from precompiled files or by compiling source code.
apt-get is the command-line tool for handling packages, and may be considered the user's "back-end" to other tools using the APT library.
apt-get remove is identical to install except that packages are removed instead of installed. Note that removing a package leaves its configuration files on the system. If a plus sign is appended to the package name (with no intervening space), the identified package will be installed instead of removed.
