a discussion of NATO.0+55+3d modular
Jeremy Bernstein
August, 2000,
revised January 2001
revised again July 2001, and again August 2001

PLEASE NOTE: These pages, as of late 2001, are no longer updated. I no longer use NATO with any regularity and certainly do not recommend it. It's a decent tool, with fair performance, opaque documentation, supported by a person or people with rather poor (aggressive, vindictive) interpersonal communication skills. I leave these pages for informational purposes only, since I don't think there's any other plainly written description of NATO out there at this time. Buyer beware, and best of luck. jb

(If you are looking for a flexible environment for manipulating visual information, check out Jitter or softVNS 2. I have a strong conflict of interest in recommending Jitter, but it's really splendid stuff.)
