Selfis : Program for analyzing self-similar data and computing H using various methods (JAVA Based)
Pareto : Generate Pareto distribution and also compare with Exponential Distribution (Windows Platform)
Heavy-tail plot : A simple Perl script to plot a log-log probability distribution of input data (outputs a PNG file) and also estimates alpha value from the data. Based on the aest tool.
Aggregate: Program to aggregate data to desired levels. Useful for Self-similarity analysis.
