Well, you can certainly download it and thumb through the manual. That should
give you an idea of the sorts of things it has been used for, and how they
were accomplished. Bear in mind that NAB is a special-purpose progarmming
language, that is designed to make the construction of non-standard models
easier than it might otherwise be. I can take some effort to learn to
formulate problems in terms that will take advantage of NAB's capabilities.

....good luck...dac
