2.   Reproducing examples/doing exercises

To set yourself up in a mode similar to used for exercises and/or examples

  1. fetch the relevant examples or exercises from the examples directory;
  2. Fetch software as required from the software directory;
  3. If necessary install winzip by running the self-extracting winzip95.exe;
  4. Unpack the appropriate software archives into the same directory with the examples.

You should then be in shape to run the examples and forge ahead with your own explorations.
