Mayan Calendrics

This old-fashined DOS-based program is still probably one of the best correlation programs available. Allows almost all computations from the Maya calendar into the julian and gregorian one and back, incl. missing parts and information about the suplementary series are also provided. In comparison to the other programs below it has a comfortable menu-based surface.

Mayacal

A program package from Linda Schele, which allows through a main menu the access to several subprograms. In addition to the functions already described for Maya Computation, the correlation can be selected freely and a compuation of the 819 days cycle is also possible.
NOTE: The individual modules are uncompiled source-code files. The compiler, Microsoft (TM) GW-Basic, Ver. 3.22 (BASICA.EXE) is enclosed and must be started first. The correlation program is then being started with the command LOAD"MAYACAL". A termination of the program ist possible with STRG+PAUSE, by typing SYSTEM you will return to Windows.
