The program is compiled to run under MS-DOS. However, a few things must
be taken into account:
- The program needs a resident memory manager. Most common nowadays is MS-Windows
dpmi. So run the program in the MS-DOS box of MS-Windows. Alternatively, you
may use some other memory managers (see
djgpp web site).
- Graphics use the grx2.2 library of djgpp. If you want to watch the graphics
on the screen (switch
`-O CONS'), it is best to set explicitly the graphics
environment in MS-DOS before running the program. Type in MS-DOS, e.g.
grx20drv=vesa gw 1024 gh 768 nc 256' where
`vesa' is a driver and
`nc' give the screen width, screen height and number of colours. The drivers
currently available are:
ati28800 cl5426 et4000 mach64 stdega stdvga VESA.
If a wrong driver is used, graphics may be unclear or very slow.
- Presentation graphics use DISLIN library. The graphics were tested and
developed for PostScript printer with A4 page. If you are using screen output,
numbers are really readable only with 1024x768 pixels. DISLIN provides several
output formats (see
`hof -O HELP'), but the results may not fit your hardware
(e.g., US paper formats). I can't test this here, but I would appreciate help
from the users US format paper (i.e. 215.9x279.4 mm) to correct the program.
- The program asks for vital parameters only (input file names, gradient
variable, parameter M). Other parameters can be changed through the command
line. Available options can be seen invoking the program with switch
