QuikGrid may be used under Linux/UNIX by using the WINE windows
emulator. To install it run the qgrid54.exe installation program under
WINE. I have tested QuikGrid using WINE releases 0.9.46 (Nov/2007) and
more recently using 1.1.31 (Dec/2009) under Ubuntu(Debian) Linux.
Use of the help facility is limited under WINE.

that caused the intial default preferences to be refelected properly in
the Menu has been corrected. All references to www.perspectiveedge.com
have been replaced by www.galiander.ca. (I am phasing out the
www.perspectiveedge.com name.) A title command can now be used in
command files. The length of speed arrows for meterorological displays
can be controlled.
5.3 includes the following change:
Version 5.3 corrects an error in the grid
generation module that manifests itself typically as differences in the
placement of unevaluated
grid intersections around the edges of the generated grid or in
areas where there are no data points.(That
is an oversimplified description of the
results of a programming bug - an array index overflow in areas near
the edge of the grid or the edge of areas where there are no data
points and grid intersections are left undefined). My thanks go to Matt
Gessner, a software
engineer from Ohio for identifying and correcting this bug.
