Installation

No installation necessary. Just un-zip the downloaded package. The applications for Windows, Apple OS X and Linux (Ubuntu) are inside. On Linux you may wish to re-compile the code from the source directory.

Quick start

Both sides of the slide rule

Slide rules often have scales on both sides (front and back). Sometime scales appear on both sides of the slide only. This slide rule emulator allows for switching between two sides. In fact, it makes it possible to have more than just two sides.

Readouts menu

The Readouts menu determines where the numeric values appear.

Length menu

This menu allows you to customise the length of a slide rule.

Every file with slide rule may in fact specify its own length. Some of them may be shorter, others can be longer. However, if you check the "length override" option, then every slide rule will have the same length, which you specify in the menu.

If you wish to specify the length, which is not available as an option, then you can edit the "config.txt" file directly. This is highly recommended.

Motion menu

This menu allows you to adjust how slides and cursor respond to the mouse dragging. Slides and cursor may move slower (settings lower than 1.0), faster (settings higher than 1.0) or at the same speed (setting equal to 1.0).

Every slide rule can have its own motion multiplier. Some of them may respond with high resistance, some others may move much faster. In fact, every single slide on a multi-slide slide rule can have its own multiplier as well. However, if you check the "motion override" option, then every slide on every slide rule will slide at the same speed.

If you wish to specify motion multiplier, which is not available as an option, then you can edit the "config.txt" file directly. This is highly recommended.

Animation menu

  • You can switch the animation ON or OFF.
  • You can change the number of animation steps.
  • You can change the delay between animation steps.
  • You can choose LINEAR animation. By default, slides and cursor accelerate and decelerate. In linear mode, the motion is continuous.
  • You can also choose VARIABLE SPEED option. By default slides and cursor move at roughly the same speed. It means that it take longer to go over greater distance. Variable speed option allows slides and cursor to preserve the amount of time necessary for different distances.
  • Every slide rule may have its own animation settings. However, if you check the "animation override" option, then your choices will take precedence.
  • If you wish to specify animation steps and/or delay frames, which are not available as an option, then you can edit the "config.txt" file directly. This is highly recommended.

Advanced configuration

  • The "config.txt" file can be edited manually.
  • You can adjust numeric values, such as length, motion speed, animation steps and animation frames.
  • number_of_slide_rules [ number ] specifies the maximum number of sides of a slide rule. Default value is 3. Practical maximum value is 12 as there are only 12 function keys available (for switching between sides).
  • no_automatic_save [] will prevent Slide Rule Emulator from overwriting it. The changes, which you will make using menus will not be permanent.
  • I_made_my_donation [] will suppress donation reminder.

Making your own slide rule

  • Every slide rule is stored in each separate text file.
  • You can create your own text files containing your own arrangements of scales, colours, sizes, hairlines and so on.
  • Text files with slide rules contain simple commands.
  • Perhaps the best idea is to start with an existing slide rule, modify it slightly and save.
  • Of course, you can build your slide rule starting with an empty file.
  • Read through the list of commands and list of scales (below).
  • List of commands

    Below is the list of all commands, which you can use to create your own slide rule:
    • name [ "text" ]: name of the slide rule, which appears as the window title.
    • length [ number ]: specified the length of your slide rule in pixels.
    • margin [ fraction ]: specifies the relative (to the scale length) width of the empty spaces on the left and right sides of the slide rule. The default value is 0.2.

    • spacer [ number ]: creates a vertical gap between scales of the specified height (in pixels)
    • channel []: creates a channel (or well) below the last declared rule.
    • channel [ n ]: creates a channel (or well) below the n-th last declared rule.
    • stator []: creates a static non-moving rule. You can put scales and/or spacers on it by writing necessary commands immediately after.
    • empty_space []: creates a stator without any visible rule. You can put scales and/or spacers on it by writing necessary commands immediately after. If you intend to put just an empty space the it must be followed by a spacer [ size ].
    • slide []: creates a movable rule. You can put scales and/or spacers on it by writing necessary commands immediately after. You can have as many slides on your slide rule as you wish. All of them move together.
    • nesting_level [ level ]: sets the level of nesting of paired free slides, which moves together.
    • free_slide []: same as slide [] but your free slides are not connected together. You can move them separately.
    • free_slide [ number ]: similar to the above but the free slide with the same number move together. The number must be greater than zero to take effect.

    • no_borderline []: suppresses drawing borderline around a rule.
    • borderline []: draws borderline around a rule (default option). You need to use it if you wish to have some rules with borderline and some other without.
    • motion [ fraction ]: specifies the motion multiplier for a rule. Each rule can have its own motion multiplier. Cursor moves with the motion multiplier of a rule, which you click over (when dragging).
    • location [ x y ]: specifies the top left corner of your slide rule within the window.

    • hairline [ number location ]: specifies horizontal shift from the main hairline. It is used for the first appearance of the hairline identified by the number.
    • hairline [ number ]: specifies the end of the hairline identified by number. This is the second appearance form.
    • rule_visible_margins [ left_fraction right_fraction ]: very good in situation where rules are of non-equal length. Allows to make visible margins shorter.

    • The easiest way to find the address is to click the Help->About menu in the Slide Rule Emulator.
    • You may actually figure-out for yourself how to write to me. My name Robert Wolf. Put the dot in-between name and surname. The domain is the same as this page (look into the address bar), without the "sliderule" part.
    • Due to the high number of spam, which I receive daily, please use the methods described previously.
