System Requirements for Running the GUI version of CPT

  • Operating System: Most modern versions of Windows.
  • Minimum diskspace: Less than 10 Mb for program files.
  • Recommended minimum screen resolution: 1024 x 768

Memory is allocated dynamically and depends on the size of the datasets. The software does not impose its own memory limits, although it is currently unable to read in more than 36156 or output more than 1128 longitudes / stations / series, and occasional memory allocation problems may cause the program to crash if large datasets are used. Problems in opening files that are more than 8192 characters wide may occur. This limit is compiler dependent. We are currently exploring ways to eliminate, or at least extend, this limit.

The program will work at a screen resolution of 800 x 600, but some of the graphics may be difficult to view. The program does not work on 64-bit processors. There have been a few compatibility problems with some machines running Windows 8; we are working to resolve these.

A source code version of the software, written in Fortran95, is available on the download site , which should be compilable under Linux and Mac, which can be used for batch work. Details on the compilation are included in the source code.
