[4] Apple Computer, Inc. issues updates to this software periodically. At the time this is written (April 1990), the current version is System Software 6.0.

[5] If this figure falls below, say, 100K, proceed with caution! One way to recuperate memory is to close one or more windows. If GoldVarb is running under the MultiFinder, then the figure is of course less than the total partition of memory which GoldVarb was allocated when it was opened. You the user can adjust the size of this partition using the "Info" window accessible via the Finder's File menu (before opening GoldVarb).

[6] In typical Macintosh fashion, a menu item which ends in an ellipsis (...) will display information or will put up a dialogue box allowing the user to confirm or cancel some command. On the other hand, if there is no ellipsis (e.g. Binomial Up & Down) the command may be executed immediately.

[7] A short-cut is discussed in 4.2, but if it is used any typing errors in the tokens will be reflected (uncorrected) in the factor specifications.

[8] In the current version of GoldVarb, the maximum number of groups is 30 and the maximum number of factors per group is 200.

[9] Variable rule analysis of the multinomial case has not been implemented in this version of GoldVarb.

[10] In this case these estimations may not be as accurate as desired, or there may be some non-uniqueness in the variable rule model defined by the condition file.

[11] In the monitor, the keyboard equivalents of the Continue, Pause and Cancel buttons are Return (or Enter), S and . respectively. These keystrokes will function even if the monitor is not the active window.
