Note (Toru Nakagawa, Oct. 17, 2014):  This page is not updated recently.  Please see the General Index (B) References:  Software tools for some more information.  It is rather difficult for me to buy and use some good but expensive commercial tools (not only because of money but also because of time).  It is desirable to have contributed articles of not commercial/advertizing but introductory/objective nature.  Could you please share your experiences and thoughts, as users or as vendors?
