The Yacht-L filelist

The red arrows point to the names of the WWW-files that can be read by clicking on them. The date (yymmdd) shows the date of update or entry in the filelist, not necessarily the creation date of the document.

Warning: The red arrow links on this page which are non-underlined, are, for the time being, out of order. These files can only be obtained as described in this silver-grey section.
The non-underlined archived files of contributions of members of Yacht-L, such as the Capsize-files of Ivor Slater can, for the time being, only be accessed via email by sending a GET-command to Listserv@Listserv.SURFnet.NL, e.g.
To obtain a list of the available files send a message to Listserv@Listserv.SURFnet.NL with the command: INDEX Yacht-L.
I will gradually make the Y-L-files via WWW available. The WWW-version of the partly rewritten Yacht-L manual is also available via the Y-L homepage.
