The FORTRAN source code and executables compiled from that source are provided "free" in order to promote greater awareness and use of antenna analysis tools among student, amateur radio operators, professionals, etc. The source code was originally contained in Government reports that were not copyright and were marked "Approved for public release; distribution unlimited" (See the RDP). Mr. Jerry McCormack, the author of the thesis and this version of the code, considers the source code to be in the public domain. The compiled versions that are made available here are for convenience only. Please do not abuse this "free" aspect by misrepresenting the origins of the code or by reselling.
There may be other programs, both free and commercial, that may be more suited for particular purposes.
ASAP is being distributed as a public service. It is provided "as is" without warranty of any kind, express or implied, including but not limited to implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, with respect to the software and the accompanying informational materials. The entire risk as to the quality and performance of ASAP will lie with the user. In no event shall the author of this webpage, the host of the system on which it resides, the author of the thesis and source code, or any other person, institution, or establishment be liable for any damages whatsoever (including, without limitation, damages for loss of business profits, business interruption, loss of business information, or other pecuniary loss) arising out of the use of or inability to use ASAP, regardless of the possibility of such damages. There is no guarantee that the operation of the program will be uninterrupted or error free.
The latest version is now Version 3.2. All source files and executables are updated. See the quick reference bug list . (The bug in the source code dealing with insulated wires was fixed in version 3.1)
A useful ASCII file editor for input / output files if you don't already have one of your own.
Programmer's File Editor (PFE) is a good ASCII editor for use, not only for ASAP input and output files, but also for source code for many programs such as 'C' and FORTRAN. This is also a free program.
See also the quick reference for the user's guide.
