|Euler files are here and show how to download the free system, as well as some dial programs for the
horizontal, vertical, and vertical decliner dials, with notes, a read-me first file, and they provide tabular data
as well as graphical depictions.
NOTES which explain what to type in AFTER loading an *.E file; this is because Euler version 7 does not
display COMMENT on load unless you do a couple of extra steps, ALTERNATIVELY the notes say how to
tell Euler to show those comments. Animation works very well now for the v-dec and h-dial programs
when using Euler version 7.
EULER FILE COMMAND COMMAND entered may not be the same as *.e name
almanac.e almanac it asks for input
avdec.e avdec it asks for data
hDialGr.e hdial (33,8,5) i.e. lat,long,ref (note: hdial not hdialgr)
hdialtab.e hdial (33,8,5) i.e. lat,long,ref (note: hdial not hdialgr)
vdecgr.e vdec(33,8,5,-45) i.e. lat,long,ref,decl (note: vdec not vdecgr)
vdectab.e vdec(33,8,5,-45) i.e. lat,long,ref,decl (note: vdec not vdectab)
vdialgr.e vdial (33,8,5) i.e. lat,long,ref (note: vdial not vdialgr)
vdialtab.e hdial (33,8,5) i.e. lat,long,ref (note: vdial not vdialgr)
ALTERNATIVELY, do FILE, LOAD and then move the mouse to the ";" after the Euler LOAD command, delete
the ";" and hit ENTER. This causes the comments to be displayed which have the prompts. Also, animation
is even better now in Euler version 7.
