Zeno is a programming language named after the philosopher Zeno of Elea. The Zeno language is an easy to learn, user friendly, high level, computer programming language. It is more like natural English than most other computer languages and this makes a Zeno program both easy to write and easy to understand. No prior programming experience is required. Zeno is generic in the sense that it contains most of the essential elements used in other languages. If you already know how to program in another language, this one should be easy for you to master.
The Zeno Interpreter was designed for use in the MS Windows 95 and later operating systems. The interpreter, with its built-in debugging tools, will allow you to learn good programming techniques. Included with the interpreter is an editor and an on-line language reference program. Together, these create an environment for you to learn to program in Zeno.
The Zeno Interpreter is SHAREWARE. The demonstration version may be freely distributed.
The Zeno distribution package consists of the Zeno interpreter, an on-line help file, several sample programs, and a few information text files. These should be copied into one subdirectory of your choice. The program assumes that the executable and on-line help files are in a subdirectory of the directory you chose for Zeno. All program files are in the same directory.
To install the Zeno Interpreter from a CD or floppy disk: Open Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel. Click Add New Programs, and then click CD or Floppy. Follow the instructions on your screen.
To install the Zeno Interpreter from a zip file: Unzip the file to a temporary directory. In the temporary directory, click on the file named setup.exe. Follow the instructions on your screen.
To remove the Zeno Interpreter from your computer: Open Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel. Select Zeno Interpreter from the list, and then click Add/Remove. Follow the instructions on your screen.
Zeno Interpreter, version 1.2 is SHAREWARE. The demonstration version may be freely distributed. It can be operated for a limited time. A dialog box will popup whenever the program is started as unregistered shareware; it will show the time remaining in the free trial period.
