Latest (beta) TABmate, ViewHAR and ViewSol

last updated 2 March 2016

From this page you can download a "bundle" containing the very latest (beta) versions of TABmate, ViewHAR and ViewSol together with some "bonus" programs which are not part of the official GEMPACK release. The "bundle" is intended for :

The programs downloadable below are intended for use with GEMPACK Release 11.4 or later under the Windows OS. See here if you have an earlier release of GEMPACK.

The main programs are:
ViewHAR data file (HAR) viewer and editor
ViewSOL solution file (SL4) viewer.
TABMate editor for examining, modifying and debugging TAB files
The Charter for graphing numbers from ViewHAR and ViewSOL


All four programs are contained within a single self-extracting EXE. Download and run BUNDLE16.EXE to install all four into your GEMPACK folder (normally C:\GP). Each program has a Help...What's New command which lists main new features.

Sometimes after installation Windows queries: "This program might not have installed correctly". In that case, respond: "This program installed correctly".

BUNDLE16.EXE also installs several command-line programs, including: TstHAR (set DOS errorlevel according to Boolean stored on HAR file); AggHAR (data aggregation program); DaggHAR (data disaggregation program); WHERE32 (locates files on your hard disk); DIRSIZES (shows sizes of directories and subdirectories); MergeHAR (combines headers from 2 HAR files into 1, versatile options); DiffHAR (computes ordinary or % differences between 2 HAR files); TABLTG (a batch file which, IF NEEDED, runs TABLO and LTG). See file BONUS.TXT for more details.

DO NOT download the above file if you are using GEMPACK 9 (or previous). These newer programs may not work properly, and you might have to re-install GEMPACK to set things right.

If you have previously installed any of these programs, it is your responsibility to check that existing icons and shortcuts point to the newly installed version, not the old version. The Help..About box for each program shows which version is running.

Similarly, some GEMPACK-related programs (such as RunDynam or RunGTAP) have their own copies of ViewHAR and ViewSol. You should install BUNDLE16.EXE into your RunDynam or RunGTAP folder BEFORE you install into your GEMPACK folder.

If you have a problem with these programs, you should first download the latest versions from this page, and install them again. New problems are discovered and fixed every month. If the problem persists, contact Mark Horridge (see below), but be sure to email him the "diagnostic file" which you can get from the Help..About command in each program.

Some other, older, aids to GEMPACK work (including my UTILS collection) may be found here.

This page gives access to various Object Pascal routines for reading, writing, and manipulating the HAR (header array) files used by GEMPACK. You would need access to, and familiarity with, the Borland Delphi compiler to use these. They might be useful for processing data or result files used in the GEMPACK system.
