Great graphing and data analysis program. A must for physicists.
Igor is an integrated program for visualizing, analyzing, transforming and presenting numeric data.
Igor's features include:
Some people use Igor simply to produce high-quality, finely-tuned graphs and page layouts. Others use Igor as an all-purpose workhorse to acquire, analyze and present experimental data using its built-in programming environment. Igor program was written to fulfill the needs of the entire range of Igor users.
Almost everything if you use the right wine version and the howto I wrote.
What does not
Displaying a graph with several traces using the native GUI (the only solution is the AppendToGraph menu or the command line) although it works in functions.
What was not tested
I only did a few tests on the functions contained in the "Analysis" menu I therefore don't know if they work with the GUI but they do with the command line.
Didn't test the "Macro" menu at all.
I will soon have tests for the amd 64 Ubuntu

Getting Igor running:
Igor may print an error message the first time it is launched because the MS fonts are missing but you can substitute them with open source fonts.
Another annoying behaviour of igor is to
create a lot of shortcuts to all the opened files in the folder it
was launched from (the bash default ~/ makes it quickly really
dirty). The solution I use is to launch it from the /tmp folder.
Some windows are quite slow natively but simply press the ctrl key, it makes them appear (I still don't know why). The other solution I have found to increase the display speed is the option WINEDEBUG = -all before the wine command to launch the igor.exe file (it doesn't spam the bash and therefore it seems to speed up the display)
