Utilities Windows and Macintosh Users Might Need

Note to Macintosh Users:

All our paperless bookstm will work on the Macintosh!

While we have chosen PKZip® archives as the storage method for our paperless booktm files, the HTML files, GIFS, and JPEGS which we use to make the web-browser versions of our books are fully tested for use on Macintosh and work just as well as on MS-DOS/Windows platforms. The latest version of StuffIt will open .ZIP files just as easily as .SIT files; but if you don't have the latest StuffIt, you can download the freeware StuffIt Expander to enable StuffIt to open Zip files on the Macintosh.

Download StuffIt Expander from Aladdin Systems, Inc., at http://www.aladdinsys.com/expander/index.html .

Note to Windows 3.1 and 3.11 Users

Some early versions of web browsers, including Netscape 2.0 and earlier, can sometimes not work offline under Windows 3.1 and 3.11 without having Winsock activated -- and some Winsocks are not configured to work offline. This problem has been corrected for versions of Netscape® from 2.01 and later, and in Windows95® but if you are having problems, the enclosed utility and short text file will likely solve the problem.

Download the file: NULLSOCK.ZIP.

Note to Windows Users

Experienced users of MS-DOS are long used to PKZip® archives; but new computer users who are starting out on Microsoft Windows® platforms might find this new. PKZIP is a popular method of compressing many files into a single archive to reduce file storage requirements and facilitate rapid data transfer. All of our paperless bookstm files are stored in ZIP archives. If you do not have a utility to open a ZIP archive, you can download one from this link.
