Available via Ernst Schroeder Zentrum.

(former FCA group of the TU Darmstadt), only
is still available.
(for "examining the hierarchical data structure of small epidemiological
by Sebastian Breuers ?, looks interesting, but no documentation as far
as I can see.
- GLAD (General Lattice Analysis and Design), a DOS program, available
from Vincent Duquenne.
JaLaBA (On-line Java lattice drawing tool).
- Jupp's FCA (not yet
released, but looks interesting, developed in Python)
(for data mining by P. Grigoriev, S. Yevtushenko).
- Scola (Shell for
Contextual Logic Applications).
Semana (software for semantic analysis which includes an FCA tool).
(association miner, not a typical FCA tool, but uses an iceberg lattice of
frequent closures internally, written in Python).
Software for playing music with micro tones. Not related to FCA but also
a project started by Rudolf Wille (the founder of FCA).
Searching for software
