KARNAUGH MAP GENERATOR, ver 1.11, 03/11/93

------------------------------------------

This program will quickly K-map a logic

expression with up to 11 logic variables!

Handles an *infinite* number of variables

but limited only by VGA display of 80x60.

K-maps are graphical devices used in the

simplification of logic/boolen expressions

and thus determine the best logic circuit.

WHAT IS A KARNAUGH MAP (K-MAP)?

Well, if you had to ask you probably don't need to use it. Basically

it is a graphical device used to simplify a logic equation or expression or to

convert a truth table to it's corresponding logic circuit in a simple, orderly

process.

Although this program has been designed to process expression with

UNLIMITED variables, I had to limited the maximum allowed due to the screen

display's height and width maximums.

The program was written in MS Quick Basic v4.5 and the compiled

unaltered executable is my donation to the public domain software realm.

HOW TO USE A K-MAP

Once your expression has been mapped, all groups in multiples of two

(2=pair, 4=quad, 8=octet, 16=hexet, etc.) can be simplified by one or more

variables depending on the size of the group. In each group, where you have

both complemented and uncomplemented forms of the variable, that variable can

be removed. The remaining variables in the group are then the simplified form

of that group. Continue this simplification process joining variables within

groups by AND (or multiply) and joining each group with OR (or addition) until

all groups are simplified and thus the expression has been simplified.

FUTURE VERSIONS

Future version will *hopefull* have the ability to simplify the

expression for you but I will more than likely *NOT* donate that version to

the public domain.

If you would like to a copy of this program with the simplification

routines installed or would like to send a donation as compensation for my

work, then please send your donations ($5-20 suggested) with name and mailing

address if you would like future version sent to you to this address...
