Edinburgh - Edinburgh University Data Library

Edinburgh University Data Library is, primarily, a service run jointly
by the University's Computing and Library services. As such, it is
involved in the collection, storage, and dissemination of
machine-readable data in various form. Principal collections include
population and agricultural censuses and social survey data.

At present the only major text holding is the complete works of
Kirkegaard, consisting of 35 books, based upon the Danish 3rd edition
with some changes to make the text more 'friendly', improve access
times, and 'treatable' by as wide a range of software as possible. The
books are held as separate files on mainframe, but there is also a PC
version complete with its own editor (KEDIT), written in assembler.
KEDIT allows Word Counts, DIVisions of text(s), text EXTraction, JOINing
of two or more files. MERGE, and ABFREQ, separate programs written in
Turbo Pascal, allow, respectively, merging of up to 14 files, and
combining and comparison of frequency lists. ZEDIT and TABLE, also
written in Turbo Pascal, allow z-score sorting and the production of
sorted output tables. EDMATRIX creates and manipulates matrix files and
is written in Lattice C.

The package was produced by Alastair MacKinnon, McGill University, to
whom enquiries should be addressed.
