The program package is "portable", which means after unzipping it you can use it on any computer without installation.
Any cave is represented by one directory that contains the survey data (daten.txt) and the drawing (gp).
When calling "Show/Draw Map" you do not select a file but that directory.
The concept is, that anything that belongs to that cave goes to this directory. Printings are also put there as PDF-Files.
They have names like: 250projection-0-5.pdf
The first number stands for the scale 1:250, projection-0 states the "Level" and 5 is the page number.
Importing data from therion files is still some kind of experimental. Don't expect too much from that feature. Exoprting data to therion works good.
The heart of the program package is "hoehle.w42", programmed by Dietmar Heinrichs. It runs under Tcl/Tk. Everything is included in copycave for any of the three operating systems.
Best of luck!
On some 64-bit distributions of linux 32-bit libraries have to be added:
Ubuntu linux: (Copy the line and insert it in a terminal window using the right mouse button)
sudo apt-get install lib32z1 libgtk2.0-0:i386 libidn11:i386 libglu1-mesa:i386 libxmu6:i386
Alternative: (Copy the lines and insert them in a terminal window using the right mouse button)
echo "deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring main restricted universe multiverse" >ia32-libs-raring.list
apt-get install ia32-libs
SUSE linux: (Copy the line and insert it in a terminal window using the right mouse button)
sudo zypper install Mesa-libGL1-32bit libGLU1-32bit libgtk-2_0-0-32bit libgthread-2_0-0-32bit libSM6-32bit libpng12-0-32bit
