TACT 1.2B (1991) for MS-DOS is available without charge for FTP
transfer to your account from epas.utoronto.ca.  TACT does interactive
concordances, indexes, distribution graphs, frequency lists, collocate
tables, fixed phrase lists, etc.
Generally (details may vary from site to site), you start FTP to this
site by typing
        ftp epas.utoronto.ca
and then move into the pub/cch/tact/dist1.2B subdirectory.  Do a
directory (type `dir') and you will see the files.  To have them
returned to your account, type
        get <filename>
and be sure to set `binary' as the transfer mode (I think this is
the default).
You can just get a description of TACT by retrieving `whatis.tact'.
A listserv exists to answer questions about using the program.
We are working closely with MLA now to publish the documentation of a new
version, 2.0 (yet to be released), and hope that this will happen in
the coming year.
