Source code
Description: Complete source code for Altruist software package. This code is only needed if you want to compile your own models.
System requirements: As above. Hard disk space: 10 MB.
Programming language: Main program and simulation models: C++. Library of stochastic functions: Assembly.
Required compilers: Each simulation model is in a separately compiled DLL. The models can be compiled with almost any C++ compiler for 32 bits Windows. (The source code and function library has support for six different compilers). The main program can only be compiled with Borland C++ version 5.0x (later versions only if they include the Object Windows Library (OWL)). The function library can be built with Microsoft Macro Assembler version 6 or later, or Borland Turbo Assembler version 3 or later.
To install: Download the installation file and run it.
To uninstall: Use the Add/Remove Programs facility in the Windows control panel.
Getting started: Read the file c:\altruist\help\source.hlp.

C++ functions for simulation
Description: This package contains a C++ class library with random number generators, including various non-uniform distribution variate generators, and examples of how to use these functions for simulating models of biological evolution. You may use this package for making your own simulation programs.
System requirements: Any C++ compiler. Any operating system.
