[NYPLAN help file (2 pages)] For several years now there has been a new type of program on the software market, commonly called a "spread-sheet". Typical paradigms of this sort of program are products like DIGICALC and VISICALC which many of you may have heard of. We now have a similar program on the system called NYPLAN. The general idea of this sort of program is that you define rows and columns of numbers (sometimes, other sorts of data items as well as numbers) and define arithmetic relationships between the rows and columns. Then, if you change a number, or create a new number, all the other numbers that depend on it change as well. For example: 25-Aug-82 10:41:31 AM LINE NAME Jan Feb Mar Jan thru NO 1982 1982 1982 Mar 1982 100 My Telephone Bills 12.77 122.01 14.11 148.89 200 My Dogfood Bills 10.01 10.01 45.92 65.94 300 Donations to Orphaned 1.0 10.00 10.00 30.00 400 Gerbil Fund 500 Money Lost Through 400.00 500.00 1.29 901.29 600 Spontaneous Decay 700 --------- --------- --------- --------- 800 Total I'm hit for 432.78 642.02 71.32 1146.12 The program (NYPLAN, in this case) will fill in the line and column totals for you. For more information on NYPLAN, you can print the document by typing: PRINT DOC:NYPLAN.DOC/FORMS:NARROW To run NYPLAN, you execute the command: R NYPLAN When NYPLAN runs, it requires a file to be in your directory called a CONFIGURATION file. To copy a basic CONFIGURATION file to your account, execute this command: FCOPY = SYS:CONFIG.NYE See APPENDIX A of NYPLAN.DOC for details about the nature of the CONFIGURATION file. NYPLAN has a lot of potent capabilities for financial modeling, book-keeping, statistics, graphics and data manipulation. We think it is a pretty good package and encourage you to give it a try. The documentation for NYPLAN is a little bit scanty. You can purchase bound documents from: MYCROSHARE Inc. 135 Lake St. So., Suite 209 Kirkland WA, 98033 (206) 822-6074 Note that when you specify files to NYPLAN, it ignores the extension and invents its own extensions. NYPLAN currently supports four classes of terminals: VT100s, VT52s, Z19s and H19s, and hard-copy [and/or unknown other] terminals. The fancy screen-editing stuff will only work on the video terminals. If you have any problems or questions about NYPLAN; if you want to use it but don't know how to begin, please call the consultants. We will have more explanatory material on the system as soon as possible. [End of HELP NYPLAN] .KJOB .
