>From that time on, I have been very skeptical of computer programs that do 
not provide the source code in readable form, where the programmer and 
his/her qualifications are not given, and, for structural analysis and design 
programs, where the structural engineer responsible for the program does not 
seal the listing and the users' manual.  After all, it is the person writing 
the program that is doing the analysis and/or design, not the person 
inputting data.  (Any clerk can input data from a coding sheet.)
