||"Fastframe" is available as a free download at Enercalc.com.
|| Nicely done,
||good docs on local and global node conventions.  'Frame

||I agree that using a standard analysis package is the way to
||go, but some
||people in this would want everything on a silver platter.
||
||I just use standard analysis packages, but I was asked by
||others to see if
||a truss program was available.  Not that I do trusses too often myself
||anyway.
||
||Thanks,
