    99== How can I install Rxnorm on VISTA? ==
    10 v0.01 (deprecated): Download and untar/ungzip this file: source:ccr/trunk/rxnorm/C0CRXN0_1.k.tgz@1206. This gives you a kids file (.k) which you can then install in VISTA or RPMS. Right now, Installation takes about 45 minutes, though I hope to cut this down in future releases. An install transcript can be found on this page: RxNormInstallTranscript. The data corresponds to Rxnorm October 2009.
    1210v0.02: This version changes how you would do installation. You now install the dictionary file (which you need to only install once unless it changes) and then install the data file, which changes month to month. The data installation now takes only 3 minutes on my poor laptop since it is transported as globals. [[BR]]
    13 This version is for July 2011 Data. [[BR]]
     11This version is for October 2012 Data. [[BR]]
