MatchMaker program by Tom & Cathy Saxton

The program is a console application, it has no graphical UI you just run it from the command line (Terminal on Mac OS X or the Command Prompt on Windows). To download, just right-click (Windows) or control-click (Mac OS X) on the appropriate link, then choose the appropriate "Download" sort of item from the pop-up menu.

We also include a second program, MatchRater that will analyze a schedule and give the same stats given in MatchMaker.

These programs are available for evaluation purposes only. For licensing, contact us at [info].

Version 1.2.5 fixes a bug with the Mac build that causes the same input to always produce the same schedule and fixes a couple of issues with MatchRater.
