Announcing PC-KIMMO 1.0.3 update

November 13, 1990

Version 1.0.3 is the newest release of PC-KIMMO, an implementation for
personal computers of Kimmo Koskenniemi's two-level processor for word
production and recognition. This new version supersedes all previous
versions, including 1.0, 1.0A, and 1.0B. The update fixes a couple bugs
related to lexical-to-surface insertions. There are no functional changes.

An update disk is now available. It includes the new executable program,
revised source code files, and a PC-KIMMO implementation of the Soundex
method for phonetically encoding surnames. The update disk contains only
the files that have been revised and is thus intended for those users who
have the full software release that accompanied the book (rather than the
bulletin board package mentioned below). The update can be obtained from
us in either of two ways:

1. Request it via e-mail. It will be sent as an encoded archive file.

2. Send a self-addressed, stamped disk mailer and a floppy disk to the
address below. People outside the U.S. may send an international postal
reply coupon instead of U.S. stamps (available from any post office).
Approximate postage:
to U.S.: $0.45
to Canada: $0.52
to Europe: $1.32 (book rate)

Please specify system version (DOS, Mac, Unix) and disk format required.
If you haven't yet returned the software registration form that came with
the book, please include it with your update request.

For those reading this announcement who would like to try out PC-KIMMO,
a package consisting of the program, basic documentation, and a couple
sample descriptions is available (or soon will be) on various ftp
archives or bulletin boards. The IBM (MS-DOS) version is available
from these sites:

SIMTEL-20 in pd2:<msdos2.education>
terminator.cc.umich.edu [] in msdos/science/linguistics
chyde.uwasa.fi []
bison.cs.uwa.oz.au [] in pub/phonology
CompuServe AIEXPERT forum

the Macintosh version is available from:

nic.funet.fi []

the UNIX version is available from:
