*If you are downloading the updater to a Mac, either format will work but the MacBinary file will download more quickly. If you are transferring the file from a PC to a Mac you should download the updater in the BinHex format. To decode these files automatically you must have a "helper" utility set up in your web browser. If your web browser is not set up with a helper, download the updater and then use a decoding utility to decode the file manually. Utilities that will decode MacBinary or BinHex files are freely available on the internet (e.g., Stuffit Expander).
Unix/Linux/VMS users can download a tar archive of Beta 10 from the Portable Version download site (Note: Prior registration is required to access this site). Requests for new orders should contact Sinauer Associates, Inc.
Cmd_ref_v2.pdf is the latest draft of the "command reference" document. The pdf gives brief a brief description of the command and options available in PAUP*, the menu equivalent for commands, and includes examples and cross referencing. We will periodically update this document so you may not want to print these pages until we are closer to a final draft. The document contains an index and is hyperlinked throughout making it fairly easy to use on-line.

The Macintosh PAUP font File. You have two choices of where to install this file, in the system or in the same folder as the application file. We recommend that you place it in the system folder (see below for how); this seems to be best for trouble-free background printing under all configurations of the operating system and the various printer drivers. To install the font file in the system folder use one of the following methods:
If you are using DOS, we strongly recommend using the public domain command-line editor CED, which provides command-line editing and recall capabilities within PAUP*.
