CodeLite (Programming IDE)  
This is an excellent free integrated development environment for programming in C++. The program is cross-platform and runs on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux. It works with a variety of compilers.


Paraview (Post-Processing)
Paraview is an open-source visualization tool based upon the VTK framework. It is cross-platform and works on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux. Paraview supports parallel output files as well as parallel rendering through distributed computing. Because it is very flexible, efficient and free, it is the preferred program for visualizing REEF3D’s computed results.


HYPRE (Parallel Computing)
HYPRE is a library for high-performance linear solvers and preconditioners. With its underlying structured grid, REEF3D can take advantage of HYPRE’s geometric multigrid options. 


OpenMPI (Parallel Computing)
OpenMPI is an open-source implementation of the parallel computing library MPI-2. It presents the merger of three well know MPI implementations: FT-MPI, LA-MPI and LAM/MPI. While OpenMPi can be build on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux, only binaries for Linux can be downloaded. On Mac OS X, the easiest way to install is through MacPorts.


Valgrind (Memory Leak Detection)
Valgrind is an open-source framework for memory debugging, memory leak detection and profiling. It runs on Linux and Mac OS X.
