Subject: Software for Examination by FTP

Our four packages for Hebrew Instruction on the IBM
are now available via anonymous FTP to all teachers
who wish to examine them. If you obtain the software
and decide to use it for your students please contact
me to arrange a license. The four are as follows:

SENTENCES for Windows (for constructing various types of drills)
MILIM for Windows (vocabulary drill)
MILIM for DOS
HEBREW VERB for DOS (verb drill)

Instructions for obtaining the files from our computer are:
-- FTP to vm1.spcs.umn.edu
-- use userid ANONYMOUS at the appropriate prompt
(a password will not be requested)
-- do the command CD MAIC.192
(at this point users will have a read-only link)
-- use the DIR command to get a list of files on the disk
(this may be the command LS)
-- use the BINARY or TYPE I command to change the transfer mode
-- use the GET command to retrieve the files
The syntax is GET filename.filetype (note that they are separated
by a period instead of the usual space)
-- use the QUIT command when done

The four main files are "zipped". Two are self extracting EXE files.
Two are plain zipped files. PKUNZIP.EXE is on the disk and may be
obtained the same way if you need it. Instructions are in a separate
file on the disk. There is no support for examination copies of the
software or for FTP transfer assistance. We hope this proves useful
to the language instruction community.
