# How to install TABULA for a non-J user

TABULA needs a working J system first.

Don't worry, it's not hard to do, and it won't get in the way. Just follow these simple instructions.

1. Download and install J from:

2. Launch JQt (green icon)

You will see an empty window with the title: **Term**

This is the *session window*.

3. Verify operation.

In the *session window*, enter: `2+2`

The *session window* will show these 2 extra lines:

2+2 4

This is J being used in *calculator mode*.

(ASIDE: You can type other arithmetical expressions. The chief thing to remember is that `%` means *divide*, because `/` is used for something else.)

4. Pick menu: **Tools > Package Manager**

Select: **All**

Check:

✓ graphic/plot ✓ math/cal ✓ math/tabula ✓ math/uu

Then click **Install**

You should see:

Downloading math/uu... Installing math/uu... Done. All available packages are installed and up to date.

4. Enter:` load 'math/tabula'`

TABULA will start, and show a sample (*t-table*) in its own window.

5. Consult the Reference pages.
