CoPlot System RequirementsCoPlot is a Java program, so it
needs Java to run. Java is included with the free CoPlot trial version and on
the CoPlot CD and is installed automatically. No, Java programs aren't slow.
In general, if your computer meets the system requirements for Java 1.3, the
CoHort programs will work fine.
- Windows: 166 MHz Pentium (or compatible) computer with 32 MB memory (64 MB
recommended) and 7 MB of disk space for Java. We have found that it is
acceptable for the processor to be slower (for example, 120 MHz Pentiums work
fine), but you really need to have at least that much memory. If you have less
than the required amount of memory, remember that additional memory is not
expensive these days, is easy to install, and is a good investment because it
will help all of the programs you use, not just the CoHort programs.
- Linux: kernel v 2.2.12 and glibc v2.1.2-11 or later, 32 MB (64
recommended), 16-bit (or more) color mode, KDE and KWM window managers, and 51
MB of disk space (6 for CoPlot, 45 for Java).
- Solaris: Java works with Solaris v 2.6, 7, or 8. Sun doesn't specify
memory or disk space requirements (it probably won't be a problem) but does
urge you to ensure you have all the latest Solaris patches installed.
As you might expect, more memory will be needed if you work with very large
files. Help : About (in each program) provides information about the
program's memory usage.
If you have a pre-Pentium computer or use an operating system which doesn't
support Java (like DOS or Windows 3.1), we recommend you stick to theDOS versions of our programs
Disk Space - The minimal installation of CoPlot (from the web site or the CD)
is about 7 MB (not counting Java). The standard CD installation (which includes
the world map data files) is about 11 MB (not counting Java). The complete CD
installation (including all detailed U.S. map data files) is about 21 MB (not
