Kirq does not include a data editor but can read in data files from Excel or any plain text format. This allows us to keep the application small and focused, limiting the number of possible bugs. It also means that you can keep and manage your data sets in whatever application you prefer (Excel, SAS or SPSS, etc) and as long as you save it to Excel format or plain text, Kirq will be able to import it. When importing plain text files, Kirq automatically determines the data set's format (CSV, tab or space delimited, etc.—just as long as it's plain text), so you don't need to worry about converting it to a specific format.
After loading a data set, you can specify the outcome for your analysis. To include a variable as a causal condition, just check the box next to the variable's name. (It's fine to mix fuzzy variables (ranging from 0.0–1.0) and non-fuzzy variables (with values outside of the 0.0–1.0 interval) in your data set. But Kirq will raise an error if you try to include non-fuzzy variables as part of an analysis.)
