Tools for Quantitative Archaeology
2008-10-10 there is now a workaround for the problems with Windows Vista.
2007-07-21 EvalC performs a Monte Carlo evaluation of the significance of an observed value of C relative to a given assumption about the population. It has been included in TFQA for several years but has not previously been noted or documented.
CntEdit and CntRefmt are companion program to cntcnv that permit reformattintg and context-oriented editing of data files formatted for cntcnv. Like EvalC these programs have been included with TFQA (as CntCnvEd and CntCnv_Reformat) but have been unnoted and undocumented.
2007-07-18 resampleBRED - A new program that provides Monte Carlo estimates of the sampling error of differences of the Brainerd-Robinson and Euclidean Distance coefficients calculated between a sample and a known population or between two samples drawn from the same population. This proigram does what BRSample does and adds calculations for Euclidean Distancess calculation based on percents.
2007-01-07 Tools for Quantitative Archaeology (TFQA) gets a new permanent web site: http://tfqa.com. (The web site has had more than 13,000 hits since it went on line last November.) All of the documentation for the toolkit on the web at http://tfqa.com/doc/ . I hope that this may be more convenient for you and especially for users at site license locations. With the web documentation everyone can take advantage of improvements to the documentation as I make them. In particular, there are some fairly recent additions having to do with more efficiently running the tools under Windows http://tfqa.com/windos.htm. For those of you using the tools in classes, please feel free to provide links to the site. I will continue to make the last printed version available but fropm now on will not maintain the printed documentation.
