If you don't have java installed go here
to get the latest version of the Java Runtime Environment.
Habread won't run unless Java is installed.
Habread1 should now be running.
- Click here and unzip the file inside
of the same directory that holds the Habplan3 directory.
Normally, this would be the ncasi directory on your desktop. This
will create a Habread1 directory inside of the ncasi directory.
- On Windows, you can quickly create
a shortcut by right clicking with the mouse pointing to open
space on the screen.
Then select new->shortcut and browse
to select the h.bat file in
the Habread1 directory that you just created. Then double click
on the shortcut and ...
Note that the command to execute Habread1 is inside of the h.bat
file. The command is: java -mx1012m Habread1. If Habread
needs more RAM, edit the h.bat file. To get 2 gigaBytes you would
put: java -mx2024m Habread1
Comments on New Features:
May 11, 2005: Added
capability to handle precut stands. If the planning horizon
starts in year 1, then a precut stand was cut in year 0, -1, -2 or
-3. With a 3 year green-up window, a precut stand will affect
block sizes in the first
few years of the planning horizon, depending on when it was cut.
See the habread manual for more. To use this feature, you need a dbf
file that has one row for each
stand and 2 extra columns. One column indicates if the stand was
precut, maybe with a "Y" or "N". The other column gives the period when
it was precut, i.e. 0 means just
prior to period 1. Habread will generate flow data that are
suitable for Habplan. Habplan was also upgraded to deal with
precut stands. It now has this ability in
addition to the alternate method of declaring "byGone" years.
