20.1     Background

     Program code is written for a DOS based language. They are triggered by batch files that need to be updated if a new program version is available.
     If the program reverts to a green on black screen, please exit by clicking on the window’s x, and restart the program.
     Some programs are meant for operation within a given excavation unit. The JD suite is used on a daily basis, while the others are used as needed.
     Other programs are used outside an excavation unit. They produce .J files that are stored in the book’s EXOGEN folder, and are then incorporated in the book’s main I\J folder.
