Utilizes the computer keyboard as an expanded mechanical counter.
|Counter PC 1.0 saves count data as tab-delimited ASCII TEXT
files which can be opened with any spreadsheet, word processor or statistics
package. Ninety categories are available for counting. Once a file is opened
for counting, the keyboard emulates the buttons of a mechanical counter.
Each time an active key is pressed, a count is added to that category,
the total is incremented and a tone is generated.
A different tone is generated when the total reaches a multiple of 100.
The number of counts per record is unlimited and the number of records is limited only by disk space. The counter is automatically reset after a record has been saved, or it can be reset by pressing a F-key. Erroneous counts can be subtracted from any key tally and the total by pressing a function key and then the key in error.
Counter PC has been purposefully kept simple. It will run on any IBM PC compatible, from a XT (80C88) running DOS v. 2.11 to a 486 running DOS 5.0. Keeping Counter PC simple minimizes the chances of a time-wasting loss of data. Coupled with an inexpensive portable PC, this product really makes sense. Two 5-button mechanical counters are likely to cost as much as Counter PC and an old Toshiba T-series portable computer. Or, resurrect that old XT...
