Jan 2015 edit: I finish my thesis in May. Once I am done with that, I will expand this because it seems to be perennially popular and I feel bad seeing legions of people at colleges and universities looking here for help. If you have any comments or something that I should put at the top of the todo list for this, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will try to make it a priority.
Aug 2015 edit: I am currently working on a replacement for AnthroPac called OpenAnthroStat. If you only want saliences from your data and have Python 2 installed, try using Version Brisbane instead of AnthroPac.
- Install DosBox via the installer
- Anthropac needs to be installed in a folder directly on a drive. This is to make working in a command line interface easier. (On my computer the C:\\ drive is my main hard drive and all of AnthroPac's files are in a folder named AT.)
- See an example of how data should appear before starting any further steps.
- Like many DOS programs, AnthroPac can only deal with inputs that are short. While I can not confirm this, try to keep each entry under 8-14 characters or a word or two max.
- Remember to remove all tabs and spaces and replace them with underscores. Spaces and tabs cause errors and will prevent the program from being able to process the data.
- DosBox runs off of a virtual drive. The
Z:\\drive that the program opens up to is not connected to a folder. Using the MOUNT command create a new virtual drive that is a file on your hard drive. I use Y since most computers do not use it for another purpose.
MOUNT Y C:\\/AT
- Make the second virtual drive the primary drive
- Open AnthroPac
- DOSBox the program as well as any screenshots with minimal additional creativity are released under the GPL.
- AnthroPac is copyrighted 1992 by Analytic Technologies, so, screenshots are not released under any free license, sorry.
