Installation of Diffractions
This web page marks the first Internet release of Diffractions through, in a
cross-platform version that should run on a wide variety of systems,
including Windows, Macintosh, and Linux. Diffractions through was originally published by
Eastgate Systems, but the rights have been returned to the author.
The version available here is nearly identical in function to the
original. It is available in two packagings: “all-in-one” and “image
file”. Most readers will probably want to download the all-in-one
version. This is a single zip file, which will run on Windows,
Macintosh, and Linux. The image file is a Squeak image which will run on
any system that already has a Squeak virtual machine installed
(compatible with Squeak 4.3 or later). Squeak is open source
software licensed under the Apache and MIT licenses.
Diffractions through does
not currently “play” in the browser. However, installation is quite
simple, and does not have any side-effects, such as registry
settings on Windows.
