OS Platforms Supported:

UNIX: ChipVault has been tested thoroughly on UNIX (Solaris) and Linux (RedHat). Only standard Perl 5 is required (generally pre-installed) and a POSIX compliant terminal window (Xterm,GnomeTerminal, NOT Solaris cmdtool!).

Win32-Console: (Win98,NT4,XP tested) platforms require ActivePerl be installed, which may be downloaded for free from This link may still take you to the download page directly. Win32 version has some limitations due to all the wonderful features on UNIX that never seem to be bundled into anything out of Redmond. WARNING : I recently discovered that the latest flavor of ActivePerl ( 5.8 ) from ActiveState has broken something in ChipVault ( the Console Display Interface ). As I don't think there are many Windows users, for now what I recommend is downloading the last stable version ( 5.6 ) of ActivePerl that ActiveState still has on their download page.
