A set of functions to locate some programs available on the user machine. The package provides functions to locate 'Node.js', 'npm', 'LibreOffice', 'Microsoft Word', 'Microsoft PowerPoint', 'Microsoft Excel', 'Python', 'pip', 'Mozilla Firefox' and 'Google Chrome'. User can test the availability of a program with eventually a version and call it with function system2() or system(). This allows the use of a single function to retrieve the path to a program regardless of the operating system and its configuration.
