This is a collection of data files
and programs written by me (J. A.
made freely available for anyone to read or download. There are also
some links to other
web sites that include related materials.
|Some of the files are
compressed with PKZIP or WINZIP and have names of the form filename.zip
(This is all PC software - DOS and/or Windows. Some of the files, including HTML, PDF and images, should be readable on computers with Linux or recent Mac operating systems.)
expand a .ZIP
archive you need an
installed WINZIP or WINRAR or similar program. These are easily
collected from the Internet. The free versions work well. For DOS .zip
files, the free PKUNZIP.EXE does the job in milliseconds.
The Windows un-archivers, needed for larger files, take minutes, with dialogues, delays,
sometimes dire warnings injected by anti-virus and antispyware
All the files on my web sites have passed by the severe security standards of my employer, the University of Western Ontario. These standards efficiently reject mass emailings even from our own senior admin staff to lists of faculty, students etc. Our IT people do a great job protecting the world from unwanted as well as potentially malicious emails.

Some files are in portable document format (filename.pdf). These require the Adobe Acrobat Reader, a free program that can be downloaded by clicking the link below.
It is now possible to run older DOS-based programs under 64-bit Windows 7, using the free emulation program DOSBox. See the links below for information and downloading.
