ClaM - A Classification Manager
The recoder function can assign either random or chain codes to all the classes. The chain coder has a number of options that you can set per hierarchical level. There is a choice of characters to be placed between each levle code. The level codes can up to the users choice range from 0..9, A..Z, or 0..Z. If the user chooses to code a certain level from 0..9, and that level contains more than 10 classes, the recoder reports an error, and inserts an random code instead of the chain code. The screendump below shows some of those reandom codes in the heirarchy just left of the recoder window.
