aXis2000 for Mac OS X, Unix or Windows if you are using IDL 8.3 or later

The latest version is 17 May 2016

At the IDL8.3 version it became possible to execute aXis2000 on Mac OSX systems
This version should work on other Unix operating systems as well.

I would appreciate if anyone who is running aXis2000 on a unix operating system
other than Mac OSX (my version is 10.9.5 Mavericks) to let me know their experiences.

Download aXis2000

the aXis2000.sav is in the downloaded zip file

The code was compiled using IDL 8.3.0, Build id: 20131115
on a MacBookAir running Mavericks (OS X 10.9.5)

Changes from previous version (20 Apr 2016)
