SPIRITshell is a program for generating, processing and applying probabilistic SPIRIT-knowledgebases. This software was developed in the platform-independent programming language Java and is free at your disposal in two versions:
as an introduction into the system SPIRIT; executable in your browser
- SPIRITshell Application
for the practical employment; installation required
Attention: SPIRIT-Shell is a software-package developed at our university. We are trying to add helpful features and so expanding the program. Please don't hesitate to send comments and suggestions for improvement to Prof. Wilhelm Rödder; he will transmit them to the developers team immediately.
SPIRITshell as applet can be started directly in a Java-compatible
browser (e.g. Firefox 2+ or Microsoft Internet Explorer 7+). This version
however is limited in its functions and allows neither loading nor storing files.
Furthermore, there might occur little errors depending on the browser's version
due to incompatibility.
You can start SPIRITapplet (1.25 MB) directly from the applet page.
You can download SPIRITshell as application and examine it for yourself free of charge.
To run the program, a Java runtime environment is needed. If such a system is not yet installed on your computer, we recommend you to use the JRE from Sun , which is also free available.
