Some people like to read all about a software package before they start using it. Chronolator provides full documentation for them.

At the other end of the spectrum are people who just like to dive in and use new software. Chronolator has been written for them as well, giving comprehensive information in its messages to guide them through the task in hand.

Somewhere in the middle are people who like to get a rough idea of what they need to do before they start, but don't want to spend time skimming through detailed documentation. If you are one of those people, these tutorials are for you!

If you want an even more general overview of Chronolator's main features, you might like to watch the demonstrations.
