The interest in artificial neural nets considerably increased in recent years.
Internet contains a lot of materials about neural nets. They are
various FAQs, books' ads, articles, etc. For example, FAQ of comp.ai.neural-nets
newsgroup resides on
Unfortunately most information sources on neural nets lacks know-how
on programming neural nets (NN) models.
The PC Noon's materials consists of a few articles (in russian) on the basic theory
of artificial neural nets and their implementation.
Some articles (2, 3, and 4) contains C++ source codes for several
NN models realized in class libraries. The programs have been compiled
by Borland C++ 3.1. Windows-based application for NN modelling, named
Synax, has been written on the basis of these libraries.
This is alfa-version.
The last two articles on the fast neural networks with kernel organization
are kindly granted for PC Noon by Alexander Dorogov
He also offers the ActiveX-element for neural nets modelling.
Some NN-related links and software packages are exposed here as well.
All articles made up as MS Word 6.0 documents archived by ZIP.
Listings are presented in appendixes.

Neuro Office - the toolset for intellectual software designing
A brief description for each program from Neuro Office software package is given.
End-user software and ActiveX-elements for the kernel neural networks designing
The Neuro Office software (Alpha-System company, email@example.com) includes instruments for the kernel neural networks generation, modelling and learning.
Also it utilizes the former NeuroService package with 3 ActiveX elements for neural nets modelling.
They are kernel NN ActiveX, spreadsheet ActiveX (for preparing data) and progress-indicator ActiveX (for visualization of NN functioning).
ActiveX-element can be used in the most COM-enabled programs (Microsoft Office, Visual C++, Delphi, C++ Builder, Visual Basic).
