ParLoc4  - the Java Version


This is a Pre-Release version of ParLoc4 which does not yet have all the functions that are available in ParLoc3.

Previous versions have only been available for Windows and were written in Delphi.

I have decided to learn Java so that ParLoc becomes platform independent and I am releasing this early and incomplete version so that I can get some early feedback from users of Apple Mac and Linux computers.

I know very little about Linux but have done some testing on Linux (Ubuntu) but have no experience of the Mac.

This  release ParLoc4.06 is still a beta test version but it now has most of the required functions.


There is no installer with this version .  Un-Zip the downloaded file as follows:-

As with ParLoc 3 all the files (including the program) used by ParLoc4.nn are in the same Directory(folder).

In Windows I suggest C:\ParLoc4.06 but it can go anywhere except in Program files.

In Ubuntu I put the ZIP file in my home folder and the extract created  ParLoc4.nn under my home folder. When you have Un-Ziped the file you will need to  set the “Executable Bit” in the file ParLoc.jar

Perhaps an experienced Mac user could advise me on the best approach but all the files must be in the same directory.

You will need Java Runtime (JRE)  version 7 or later which  is FREE and can be downloaded from java.com

Download   ParLoc4.07.zip


This is probably the last beta version and now has all the required functions.  Let me know if you find any bugs that need fixing.
