To Macintosh programmers and users (e.g., Marken, Taylor)

In a recent campus newsletter on using computers for instruction, there is
an article on one professor's use of the Macintosh program STELLA for
dynamic modelling in the life sciences.

As someone who is quite computer literate but with only very basic (and in
fact only BASIC) programming experience, I wonder if STELLA might be a way
for me to do some PCT-type modelling without the pain of learning a
traditional language. Can someone comment on the potential uses
(advantages and disadvantages) of STELLA for PCT work?--Gary
