The Maple package
NSFdms is a
a Maple package for doing NSF-research in Mathematics,
or rather, meta-mathematical research, about the
funding of the Division of Mathematical Sciences
of the National Science Foundation.
It should be used in conjuction with
DMSDATA, (download this file in the same directory
as NSFdms, and make sure that this new new file is called
DMSDATA, as it should).
To use NSFdms, download it as NSFdms, make sure that the data set is also downloaded in the same directory, and is indeed called DMSDATA, go into Maple, type `read NSFdms;`, and follow the instructions given there.
Note: The file DMSDATA was generated by using the browser lynx to download information provided by the NSF in their website www.nsf.gov, and then using the Unix Shell Program NSFtoMaple, to convert the text files into Maple input files (some very few minor adjustmentmay have to be done by hand), use the procedure Kosher, in NSFdms, to test whether the input is in the right format). This way you can study Biology, Physics, or whatever! To use the Unix Shell Program NSFtoMaple, first, once and for all, do:
chmod +x NSFtoMaple,
and then once you downloaded, using lynx, all the grants
of a certain program, say, sexed, do:
NSFtomaple < sexed > osexed
Now file osexed has the set of grants, in the required format. All you have to do is give it a name, say SEXED, and stick the line
at the very top of the file osexed. Of course, you have to add the line
