Bug Fix for Earlier Release 8.0 Versions of Source-code GEMPACK

The following fix is recommended for all Source-Code versions of Release 8 prior to Release 8.0-005 (June 2004).

This fix can also be applied to any Release 7.0 version of Source-code GEMPACK.

To install this fix on a Windows PC, proceed as follows.

1. Download the file NOTFIX80.ZIP (25K) and put it into the TABLO subdirectory of the directory in which your GEMPACK is installed (usually, C:\GP\TABLO).

2. Go to a DOS box and change into this TABLO subdirectory.

3. Issue the following commands.
del tbrw*.for
del tbcd*.for
unzip32 -o
zip gen2 tbrw*.for
zip code2 tbcd*.for
cd ..

This will make a new version of TABLO.EXE.
