HyperResearch 1.57

Description: HyperResearch handles the standard tasks of coding texts and their retrieval using Boolean searching techniques. The package includes a semi-formal mechanism for theory building. HyperResearch 2.0 for Macintosh and Windows will allow the coding of images, digital audio, digital video, and off-line sources as well as text. The basic process of using HyperResearch involves the creation of individual cases (represented by index cards) where references to source materials are stored. The coding of these 'chunks' of data is done simply by highlighting and assigned user-defined codes. The information is then stored on the appropiate index card. An autocode feature will encode all instances of a word or phrase throughout an entire text source. The analysis of the data is perfomed by building expressions using a combination of the available codes and Boolean operators. The testing of hypotheses is undertaken in a similar manner using 'If...Then' statements.

Requirements: Apple Macintosh running System 7+ with at least 4 MB RAM or PC running Windows 3.1+ or higher with at least 8MB RAM.
