FLAME Free-List Analysis under Microsoft Excel


> Lire cette page en français

FLAME is a new software, free of charge, entirely dedicated to the analysis of free-lists. The development of the software was largely inspired by ANTHROPAC – developed by Stephen Borgatti. However, it offers a wider range of free-list analysis and output data in a more user-friendly and up to date environment. In fact, FLAME is a set of macros running under Microsoft Excel. The familiar spreadsheet interface greatly facilitates the inputting of data and extraction of results. Moreover, results may be automatically exported to text files (mainly proximity matrices) in order to carry out more elaborate statistical analysis under other software.
