10 jpye 1575 \fBascend4\fR is the Tcl/Tk GUI for the ASCEND mathematical modelling
11     environment. As well as the Tcl/Tk GUI, ASCEND provides a newer PyGTK GUI
12     that can be accessed via the command \fBascend\fR.
13    
14     \fBASCEND\fR is a modelling program that allows you
15 jpye 1418 to solve systems of equations. You write model files (*.a4c) that describe
16     your system of equations, then you load them into the ASCEND GUI and examine
17     and solve your equations. For more information see the ASCEND wiki at
