26[N.B. the .exe file is not yet available, use the .tar.gz file and uncompress
27with Winzip]
28</LI>
29</UL>
30You can put these .EXE files anywhere on your computer, but make a note of the
31locations for steps 2 and 4, below.
32
33<P><B>2. Run the programs</B>
34<UL>Use the file manager or Run command to succesively run, gsaskit_Jan98.exe,
35tcltk80p2+.exe, and expgui.exe (the order should not matter)
36
37This will cause the files to be unpacked. The default
38locations for installation are:
39<P>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; gsaskit_Jan98.exe&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;

46c:/gsas/tcl
47
48<P>These files can be located on other disks and in directories with
49other names, but the expgui.exe files
50<I><U>must</U></I> be located in a subdirectory of the GSAS files.
51If these files will be located on a fileserver, the file server
52must be mapped to appear as a disk drive (must be assigned a name
53such as F:).

96Questions</H2>
971. Can I use a different version of Tcl/Tk than the one here?
98<UL>Yes -- but: you will need both Tcl/Tk and the Winexec package (see
99http://www.du.edu/~mschwart/tcl-tk.htm) for the GUI to work. Further,
100several utility routines (liveplot and widplt)
101require the BLT package to be properly configured as a loadable
102package to run. If you care what vintage of Tcl/Tk you are using, you are
103obviously a "power user" so take a look at the pkgIndex.tcl files and fix
104your version appropriately.
105<BR>&nbsp;</UL>
1062. Do I need to modify the PATH, etc in my AUTOEXEC.BAT file?
107<UL>Only if you will use the PC-GSAS or GSAS.BAT menu programs as well.
108If so, do the following (from the GSAS readme file):
109<BR>&nbsp;
110<UL><TT>5. Modify the PATH statement in your autoexec.bat file to add C:\GSAS\EXE
111to the path (or whatever disk letter you choose for \GSAS)</TT>
112
113<P><TT>6. Add the statement "SET GSAS=C:\GSAS" (again pick the appropriate
114drive letter) to your auto exec.bat file.</TT>
115
116<P><TT>7. Add the statement "SET PGPLOT_FONT=C:\GSAS\FONTS\GRFONT.DAT"</TT>
117
118<P><TT>8. Make sure you have sufficient environment space for these additions
119and two more that are done by gsas.bat each time you run gsas.</TT></UL>
120</UL>
1213. What versions of Windows can I use?
122<UL>This package has gotten some testing under Win95 and WinNT v4.0.
123My limited experience to Win98 seems to show that EXPGUI seems to
124run OK there.
125I would not expect this to run under Win32s on Win3.1.
126</UL>

129Acknowledgements</H2>
130The version of Tcl/Tk here was compiled by <A HREF="http://www.xraylith.wisc.edu/~khan/software/tcl/index.html#tcltk-80p2-ming">Mumit
131Khan</A> and the Winexec package, which is needed to allow Tcl/Tk to run
132the GSAS DOS .exe files was created by <A HREF="http://www.du.edu/~mschwart/tcl-tk.htm">Michael
