A Planetary Calculator
by William Weber
November 13, 1992
PM Horoscope is a Planetary Calculation applet that runs under OS/2 Presentation
Manager. It was written as an exercise in PM development using Gpf Systems
development tools and the IBM Workset /2. The calculation engine is based on
algorithms from books published by Wilmann-Bell, Inc. and was written in C.
All development was done under OS/2 2.0.
The files required are PMHoro.Exe, PMHoro.Hlp, and Table.LBR. To install
PMHoro, choose any directory for PMHoro.Exe and Table.LBR, and place PMHoro.Hlp
into a directory which is in your HELP path.
PM Horoscope may be invoked in any way you prefer: OS/2 command line, Look2
eXec, and double-clicking the icon have all been tried, under OS/2 2.0. Two or
more PM Horoscopes may be invoked at a time, should you want to compare a few
different sets of planetary positions side-by-side.

for Zodiacal Disposition analysis.
