[B/D] for Linux
This beta version of [B/D] for linux is available in binary form
only to run under linux on a PC. If you have more than a simple
hardware question, I probably don't know the answer.
This version, which is freely available to the academic community, is
limited to the construction of beliefs over 500 random quantities, and
to the adjustment of up to 250 random quantities by up to
250 others. Informally, by adjustment we mean the complete
process of belief analysis and revision implied by the Bayes linear
methodology. This program runs merrily (without noticeable disk
swapping) on a PC with 32Mb RAM. If you need a smaller version, please
This is currently available as a test version only, and no
support is available for it. Excepting unimplemented modules (see the
readme file after unzipping/untarring the distribution), the linux
version should provide the same functionality and results as other
versions. Only the binary executable and other relevant files are
included in thius distribution. If you need the documentation, this is
available at [B/D] documentation. The linux
version has been compiled with GNU PASCAL version 2.6.3, for which I
am very grateful to the team behind the GNU PASCAL project. One day I
will be brave enough to install and use a later version of GNU PASCAL.
Download the file to your PC, put it in an appropriately named
directory, gunzip it and untar it. One of the resulting files,
is called readme.doc, which contains general
downloading and extracting the software, and copyright statements.
You must read and follow the
instructions in this file. A second file README.LINUX should also be read.
other versions of the package are available.
Upgrades will be made available periodically. Refer to Upgrade notes and bugs reported for details.
