SOFTWARE
 

C Language Software (pre-2003)

The following programs were written in "C" and compiled with DJGPP (version 2.01) to run on Windows 98 with the GNU operating system installed and run from the Born-Again-Shell (bash), which is run in a DOS-prompt window. The DJGPP is a 32-bit protected-mode development system available from Walnut Creek CD-ROM (ISBN 1-57176-228-0) that is suitable for porting Unix programs to DOS. GNU is a Unix-like operating environment distributed by the Free Software Foundation (ISBN 1-882114-57-4). The user must install the GNU package, and set their system to run in the bash environment before using these programs.

Software Code: Documentation files and source code are contained in the compressed file: c_code.tar.  Right click this UNIX tar file and use "Save As" to download the software. This tar file, which puts it’s contents into a new directory called c_code, may be expanded in the bash shell with the command: tar xvf c_code.tar

Executable Programs: Compiled versions of the code and a "readme" file are contained in the compressed file: apsas_up.tar.  Right click this tar file and use "Save As" to download the software. This tar file, which puts it’s contents into a new directory called apsas, may be expanded in the bash shell with the command: tar xvf apsas_up.tar.  The programs may be operated from this directory or can be copied to any directory in the user’s path.

HTML and Word versions of the documentation for the C-language programs can be accessed through the links below.
