Interact (1 Mb)
- Download the single ZIP file that includes the program files for Interact,
including dictionaries and equations, and WWW pages used for help. This
allows you to use Interact when disconnected from the Internet. UnZip
the files to a hard drive into a directory called "interact", and
discard the ZIP file. Directory "interact" will end up with
several subdirectories. Run your WWW browser and open the file named
JavaInteract.html. The program will start up relatively quickly, as if using
a direct high-speed connection to the Internet.

them on the Web for posterity. I also am scanning the EPA profiles for 610
concepts into a pancultural data file in SPSS format. These materials may be
