Before you can install any applications you need to know what you want, and what the
application is called.
FreeBSD's list of available applications is growing all the time. Fortunately, there
are a number of ways to find what you want:
The FreeBSD web site maintains an up-to-date searchable list of all the available
applications, at http://www.FreeBSD.org/ports/. The ports are divided into categories,
and you may either search for an application by name (if you know it), or see all the
applications available in a category.
Dan Langille maintains FreshPorts, at http://www.FreshPorts.org/. FreshPorts tracks changes to the
applications in the ports tree as they happen, allows you to ``watch'' one or more ports,
and can send you email when they are updated.
If you do not know the name of the application you want, try using a site like
FreshMeat (http://www.freshmeat.net/) to find an application, then check back at
the FreeBSD site to see if the application has been ported yet.
