We now describe the main window of Factor. From here data is read from the disk, the analysis is configured and the computing begins. The program continuously informs the user about the process and announces the job is finished.


The steps for analyzing the data are:

  • The data is read by clicking on Read Data button. (See details)
  • The analysis is configured by clicking on Configure Analysis button. (See details)
  • Finally, the analysis is started by clicking on Compute button. (See details)

The above order must be followed. The program will not allow the analysis to start before the data are read and the analysis is configured. After the computation, the output of the program is stored in the file output.txt (see the output section of this manual for details).

The Exit button ends the program.
