OK, thanks for the link.  I was not aware that binaries were being
distributed there.  I would guess that they work, though I have not tried
these myself.

Yes. Or, it should be.  Perhaps this Feff85L.exe did run for you, but just
not do everything you wanted?

I don't know of anyone with an illegal copy of Feff9.  I've only seen it
run in classes, and do not have a copy myself.

The fact that Artemis points to the on-line Feff documentation is very
convenient.  That this is for Feff9 and not Feff8 or other versions is not
really in our control.   Artemis comes with the latest version of Feff that
it can.

A great many people say the same thing.  If that "many" becomes "everyone"
you will not have to worry which version of Feff can be run by Artemis.
