There are two versions of OMNIGRID available, depending on what kind of
machine you wish to run it on.

OMNIGRID 3.0 (the Macintosh version) requires HyperCard 2.0 and about 2 mg.
of memory. It has been fully documented and the on-line help system has
been implemented. If you are interested in obtaining a copy (without cost),

OMNIGRID-PC, an MS DOS version, can be obtained directly from Dr. Ken
Sewell, Department of Psychology, University of North Texas, Denton, TX
76203 [], probably on a, more or less, cost recovery basis.

information about them can be found in the following publications:
