Astrolog: currently used in over 35 countries on six continents!
Astrolog is relatively unique in astrology software for the following reasons:
"The Best Freeware/Shareware Program of 1995 is Astrolog for Windows" - American Astrology, March 1996
"One exceptionally good freeware program is available to astrologers - good enough to be worthy of review with the main commercial programs. This is Astrolog..." - The Mountain Astrologer, November 1995
"For a free program to have such a superb ephemeris with an 8000-year range is incredible." - American Astrology, November 1994
Astrolog features: wheels, aspects, midpoints, relationship charts, transits, progressions, some interpretations, astro-graphy, local horizon, constellations, planet orbits, dispositors, various influence charts, biorhythms, different zodiacs, central planets, 14 house systems, 8400 year ephemeris, asteroids, Uranians, fixed stars, Arabic parts, script files and macros, interactive PC & MS/X11 Windows graphics, smooth animation of charts, graphic files in PostScript, Windows metafile, and bitmap formats, and more!
A list of the main features in Astrolog:
For PCs, 640K of RAM and a reasonably recent version of DOS. A math co-processor chip is recommended for best performance but not required. Astrolog can take advantage of Ansi text, CGA, EGA, VGA, and SVGA graphics but they are not required. The program will run on 8088 AT and XT systems and higher x86 processors. The DOS version of Astrolog may be run from MS Windows in a DOS box.
For compiling the source code for PCs, the Microsoft C compiler version C6 or later, or Borland Turbo C/C++ compiler version 3.0 or later. Other compilers should work although one will probably have to compile out the screen graphics sections.
For the Windows version, at least 2M of RAM and Windows 3.1 or later. Astrolog for Windows will run under Windows for Workgroups, Windows '95, and Windows NT. For compiling the Windows version, Microsoft Visual C version 1.5 or later is recommended, although most any Windows compiler should work provided it can compile resource files.
For Unix systems, some C compiler is required since ready to run executables aren't available (with the exception of a couple of Linux versions). Astrolog can take advantage of X11 but this is not required.
Astrolog will compile and work on VMS systems, even with X Windows, but this isn't officially tested. A .COM makefile script is included.
On the Macintosh Astrolog will compile and run with every feature including some interactive graphics, using for example the Symantec C/C++ 7.0 compiler for the Mac. It will run on any reasonably recent 68K Mac with 750K free, and will run on PowerMacs in emulation mode.
A few third party ports of Astrolog are publicly available. This includes a port of Astrolog version 4.00 to OS/2 Presentation Manager by David Serls, a port of Astrolog 2.2.5 to the Macintosh but with interactive graphics by Pascal Lamboley, and a port to the Amiga by Tobias Ferber.
