From: DARWIN@iris.uncg.edu
Subject: KLEIO software for historians (fwd from HUMANIST)
To: darwin-l@ukanaix.cc.ukans.edu
Organization: University of NC at Greensboro

I came across this announcement of a new software package for historians
on the HUMANIST list, and thought it might be of interest to some Darwin-L
members.  I don't exactly understand what it does myself, but perhaps
someone here will try it out and enlighten the rest of us.

   Version 5.1.1; The English Version of KLEIO

   ---------------------------------------------------

The pioneering software system KLEIO, developed by Dr
Manfred Thaller of the Max-Planck-Institut at Goettingen, has
revolutionised historical computing in the German-speaking
world. Starting with the principle of "source-oriented data
processing", KLEIO provides historians with a range of
sophisticated, discipline-specific tools which enable them to
preserve the integrity of their source material while handling
that material in a wide variety of ways. To this end, KLEIO
offers powerful text handling facilities, routines for dealing with
varieties of historical dating systems and interlocking currency
systems, hierarchical and non-hierarchical relationships, record-
matching algorithms, fuzzy and context-sensitive data handling,
mapping, image retrieval and information exchange routines.
The approach has been accurately defined as that of the
"historical workstation".

The English version of KLEIO is now released, allowing a wider
community of historians access to the software at last. This
version consists of a substantial revision of the software itself,
and a completely new tutorial written English historical practice
data sets. The tutorial has been tested on classes of students
during 1993, but is equally suitable for individual work.

Version 5.1.1 of KLEIO is suitable for PCs of 386 specification or
above. The release also includes StanFEP, the Standard Format
Exchange Program also developed by the KLEIO team. A "high-
tech" version of KLEIO incorporating the features of this version
as well as KLEIO's Image Analysis System (KLEIO IAS) is also
available, at present only for UNIX systems.

The English Version of KLEIO has been made possible by the
support of The British Academy: The Royal Historical Society:
The Max-Planck-Institut fuer Geschichte, Goettingen: The
Committee for Advanced Studies, University of Southampton:
The Arts Faculty, Queen Mary & Westfield College, University
of London.


     How to Order KLEIO
