Biochemical Algorithms Library

BALL (Biochemical Algorithms Library) is an application framework in C++ that has been specifically designed for rapid software development in Molecular Modeling and Computational Molecular Biology. It provides an extensive set of data structures as well as classes for Molecular Mechanics, advanced solvation methods, comparison and analysis of protein structures, file import/export, and visualization. BALL is currently being developed in the groups of Oliver Kohlbacher (University of Tuebingen, Germany), Andreas Hildebrandt (Saarland University, Saarbruecken, Germany), and Hans-Peter Lenhof (Saarland University, Saarbruecken, Germany). This package contains the view - independent parts of BALL (libBALL, data directories et al., except for libVIEW) and can be installed on machines without X11.


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.
