Type of Software
RECIPE is a FORTRAN program for determining one-sided tolerance limits (in particular, A- and B-basis material property values) for regression models in the presence of between-batch variability.
For convenience, Unix users can download a single compressed tar file. After downloading, enter the following command to uncompress and unpack the file:
uncompress recipe.tar.Z | tar -xvf
For convenience, PC users can download the source and data files via a single self-extracting zip file. After downloading, enter the following command to unpack the file:
The software distributed consists of the following files:
|simcov.f||Utility for determining actual confidence levels|
|simpvt.f||Utility for simulating a pivotal quantity; useful for highly unbalanced data|
Since many users may not have a 32-bit Fortran compiler for Microsoft Windows, the executables for the Recipe program, Simcov program, and Simpvt program are provided. These were created using the Intel version 9.0 Fortran compiler for Windows 2000/XP. Since these were created as console applications, you can run them under DOS or under a DOS prompt window using Windows 2000/XP. These executables were created using the default array sizes.
NOTE: The Windows executables were update 2/1/2008. The previous executables were built using a much older compiler for Windows NT/95/98. If you still have one of these older operating systems, contact email@example.com to obtain these older versions.
This software can be run on most common computer systems (IBM PC Windows 3.1/Windows 95/Window NT, MacIntosh,) and most common Unix workstations.

You only need the Acrobat reader. This reader is free and supported for most common computer systems (IBM PC Windows 3.1/Windows 95/Window NT, MacIntosh, most common Unix workstations). For best results with Netscape, it is recommended that you install the reader as a plug-in rather than a helper application. This is done automatically for the PC installation. Other software may also be used to view PDF files (e.g., the latest version of ghostview), although the performance is typically not as seamless as the Adobe Acrobat reader.
