Many of you are missing Alex Tatlow's point!

He wants to know *how to do it by hand* - not have a set of programs which
will do it for him. This latter is called 'dumbing down'.

As Don Morrison finally said: "That said, I strongly urge working out at
least one or two examples yourself, by hand, at least for tenors together,
in course. You'll learn a lot more than by just looking at whatever a
machine spits out."

As an example of this, anyone can look up the falseness of any method they 
choose and, usually, look up a composition which will suit. Doesn't make 
them understand why it works, does it?
