  Thanks to all who responded.

It appears that Rudy has a lock on the program. I received the following
from Jan Hetzer, IAC Program Administrator.

It appears that Rudy owns the program and will not share the specifications
and the IAC does not have the will to try to get the program done by anyone
else. I would really be interested to find out if the IAC is paying for the
program or if individual users pay for it.

Even if Rudy is writing a new version it appears that the program will still
only run on windows OS's. In my view this is a very short sighted approach.
This program could be easy to use, run on either Mac or PC, communicate with
a Palm, and post results immediately. Oh well...
