Source code is quite portable to systems with a good Fortran compiler
and sufficient memory.
For the Linux executable, you need about 20MB of hard disk
space. No specific RAM requirement, although 16MB is recommended
and you may need to set your swap space large enough. X11 support
is recommended for screen graphics. Allow about another 40MB if
you want to download the source and compile yourself.
The Linux version was created using the f2c (Fortran-to-C) utility, so this
is required if you want to compile yourself. If you want to
run a graphical user interface (early Beta version), you need to
have the Expect and Tcl/Tk utilities (freely available) and
another 10MB or so for the Dataplot menu files and Tcl/Tk scripts.
