Javelin 1.0

Javelin, from Javelin Software Corporation, is an analysis and reporting tool that offers features in excess of those found in spreadsheets. Unlike common spreadsheets, Javelin features the ability to manage complex relationship models between data and formulas. This gives users the ability to audit and document financial analysis models. Although some might argue that Javelin is more of an analysis tool than a spreadsheet, and defining rules is placed before data entry, one of its model "views" is a spreadsheet view that can be used similarly.


Release notes

This copy is marked as "Not For Resale" and is pre-serialized with that information. It may or may not differ from the retail version.

Important: This software contains copy protection, and no unprotect is known to exist. To make usable disks, you must use the SCP images. The software has been shown to work in PCE and 86Box.

Disks written to real disks are tested to work on PC/XT and 286 class machines, but due to timing issues the protection may fail on anything faster than a 6 or 8MHZ AT.

To convert to PCE PSI format use the commands: pri disk1.pri -s mfm-min-size 2048 -p decode auto disk1.psi psi disk1.psi -e crc-data 0 -e position -1 disk1.psi

Also, PCE may require the following configuration settings: accurate=1 speed=5 Oddly, using an EGA configuration also made it work.

Protection type: "JAV" signature in the gap of several sectors on Track 4 head 0 and Track 4 head 1. Extra sectors on track 5 and later.
