Abstract Computer generated holograms are usually generated using commercial software like MATLAB, MATHCAD, Mathematica, etc. This work is an approach in doing the same using freely distributed open source packages and Operating System. A Fourier hologram is generated using this method and tested for simulated and optical reconstruction. The reconstructed images are in good agreement with the objects chosen. The significance of using such a system is also discussed.
