available version: v.1.
21 May 2009


INTERPOL is a Windows program that calculates interpolated values for standard-sample-standard sequences using different methods.

Usage is extremely quick and simple: data pasted from clipboard, and the interpolated sequences are copyed to clipboard by one mouse click. See attached Examples-for-INTERPOL.xls file with test data and brief explanations.

- The current version was tested under Win 2000, XP, and Windows 7.
- The program optimized to work with US/UK settings of the Windows system. Use dot as decimal separator and comma as list separator to avoid confusions. (Can be set in: Start / Control panel / Regional Options).
- It is recommended to show the extensions of the files in your system (disable the following option: My computer / Tools / Folder Options / View / Hide file extensions for known file types).
Status: Freeware, but the users are asked to cite this web-page.

Download the complete setup (v. 1) - ca. 2 Mb, zipped
Unzip the package and run setup. Sometimes the system reports a "Version Conflict" Do you want to keep...? answer: YES.

At download it is recommended to send an e-mail to be a registered user and receiving information on the updates in the future.

- The present version can process data files up to 30,000 data.
- A given number for X value can be used only once (the program is basically designed for processing time series data, and thus one X value can be used once).
- Decimal separator should be set to dot (UK / US system; "Pech" for German users - for more details ask Bill Gates).
