In view of the time available for this talk, I will discuss mainly some of the most imporatant features of our program for the Apple Macintosh, because I believe that it illustrates some of the features that are needed in Optical Design software, if it is to be as user-friendly as some of the best general-purpose software. Other recent papers, particularly reference 2, describe other programs in more detail.
