[EpiData-list] User manual and podcast

We are now close to the final form of all data management aspects. So it could be a proper time to start on writing a manual. 

Untill such a product is ready, I am aware that a certain level of experience in  programming pgm's is  needed. 

Start by reading the pdf explaining how to adopt previous pgm files. The pdf file is  delivered with the software and  found via the help menu. 

Many aspects are the same or needs very little change. 
Eg write 
a := v17 ;
Instead of 
a = v17
In analysis classic. 

Happy new year to all
