The software can be directly downloaded from the server at http://www.cavediving.de/multilevel/english/multilevel_19_pda.class.

WWW-Browser or a Java appletviewer.
Multilevel 1.9 PDA is an Applet-/Application hybrid.
will run on either a pure Java Runtime Environment (e.g. Java
Kit) or on a WWW-browser. Hence the spectrum of this software is
enlarged, since a wide variety of Java Virtual Machines (JVMs) for
operating systems is available. However, on most generally used
systems one will use a WWW-browser, which will simply do the job
without any problem. You might have to download a Java plugin
(as in the case of the Firefox Browser).
In case you have good reason for using Multilevel
as pure application on a Java Runtime Environment be referred to http://java.sun.com
. There you can download a lot of JVMs and get more info on Java
and related issues.
Running Multilevel on Windows PCs:
The best way to do this is to load the file start.htm into
WWW-browser and to make sure that Java is enabled. The applet will be
If you want to run the application by using a Java Virtual Machine
then proceed as in the following example:
you have downloaded and installed the Sun Java development kit
from http://java.sun.com under
Windows. The next step is to create a path in your autoexec.bat,
which points to the \bin - directory of the JDK:
PATH c:\ jdk\bin (where \jdk\ must be replaced by the
name of your own JDK-directory).
Now the computer must be rebooted and everything should work smoothly.
To start Multilevel you have to open your MS-DOS window and
C:\> java multilevel_19_pda <RETURN>
Running Multilevel on a Sharp SL-5500:
It is rather simple:
1) Install the file manager and the terminal from the
Sharp installation CD (can also be downloaded from http://www.zaurus.com).
2) Copy the files to /home/root using the file manager.
3) Start the terminal and make sure that the working directory is
(press pwd <RETURN> ).
4) Enter evm -appletviewer start.htm
5) To get access to all buttons and fields of the software shift the
applet by moving the upper panel with the pen.
Running Multilevel on mobile PDAs
Go to http://java.sun.com and
find out more about how to install a Java runtime environment and run Multilevel on your mobile device. This is still somewhat experimental since I could not test every possible unit. I heavily rely on your feedback!
The software, specified under 2.1 has been developed and
with the greatest care. However, even a carefully programmed
software cannot totally exclude the possibility of a DCI. The
of decompression schedules is based on preliminary assumptions, which
by the very nature of a linear decompression model (ZH-L17BTS)
not reflect the true conditions in individual divers. Therefore the
of Multilevel accepts no liability for any damage, that might
from using this software.
