MacAnova User's Guide

The "MacAnova User's Guide" is Technical Report 617 from the School of Statistics, University of Minnesota, as revised September 1998. It is a comprehensive (several hundred pages) guide to what MacAnova does and how it works. The User's Guide is for version 4.07, release 1 of MacAnova.

The User's Guide consists of eleven chapters and six appendices (plus Table of Contents, Preface, etc). It is broken up into several Adobe Acrobat (PDF) files, generally representing chapters. There is also a README file for the User's Guide.

The User's Guide is included in the standard installation for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. For Windows and Linux, the documentation is in the SharedSupport/docs subdirectory of whereever you installed MacAnova. For Mac OS X, the documentation is in the docs folder on the installer disk image.
