This program is a port of my Stereonet program for Macintosh and as such has
similar functionality. Thus, like the Mac version, in this one you can change the view
direction, enter and/or plotdata using latitude and longitude, etc.
There are a few things still missing from the Windows version but it is basically
quite useable now. Coming soon will be the ability to edit data within theprogram, enter data by clicking on the screen, save preferences to disk for automatic loading at start
up, plot rose diagrams, unformatted text file entry, and a variety of other touches.
TheWindows version has more limited graphical output capability than the Mac
version. In Windows, you can only copy your graphic to the system clipboard as a
“.bmp” file. Choosing "Save graphic" from theFile menu will save your graphic to disk
as a “.bmp” file. High quality graphical output is available using the Export DXF function. However, you must use a graphics program such as Corel Draw or Canvas(sorry
Illustrator users...) to open the DXF file for modification (as vectors) or printing.
If you have not previously used any of my programs for Windows, you will
probably needto install the “.DLL” libraries for Compaq Visual FORTRAN. In the zip
archive that you downloaded, there is an application named “VFRUN65I.exe”. This is
the official Compaq installer. Justdouble-click to launch the installer and then follow
the instructions. After those DLLs are installed, you may simply place the StereoWin.exe file anywhere on your disk.
A few key points:
