Introduction to WinBASP

WinBasp has a consistent user interface using standard Windows menus, dialog boxes, toolbars and toolboxes. Each has its own help which can be called at any time. Thus learning to use the programs is intuitive for all those with any experience with other Windows programs. The programs are all new, with enhanced functions and many additions to those available in the DOS package.

The new handbook for the Windows version has been completely revised and is now 'on-line' in Windows Help format so that you can print as many copies as you wish with all the illustrations. There is a vast bibliography covering all the subjects in the package, as well as theoretical introductions for non-mathematically inclined users in addition to detailed program descriptions and colored screen pictures.

Operating systems and Hardware Requirements

The programs have been tested under Windows 95, Windows 3.1, Windows for Workgroups 3.11, Windows NT/2000/XP & Vista and on Server 3.51, 4, 2003 and OS/2/2.1 Win/OS2 and have been installed under Novell 3.12 on a server, as well as on an OS/2 PC-LAN server.

The package will not be made available for Macintosh or Unix machines. Although WinBASP is a program for MS-Windows only, it is possible to run it on a MAC. Please read David Simpson's test notes.

The full package needs about 6 MB of hard disk space.

Capacity and Speed

All programs use dynamic storage with variable matrix size. Large numbers of types and features/graves can be entered limited only by virtual memory.
CA: 19473 features with 279 types and 107680 incidences: Two components were computed in 305 seconds on a 486/66 machine. Seriation in roughly half that time. The amount of data which can be handled is many times that which can be treated in the DOS version.
