    Yep. I have a copy around here somewhere on a floppy.

    I'm getting a book now from the library that has PUFF in it. Not sure
    if PUFF is still used, still being developed.

    What other open source tools are out there?

    I think it's safe to say that PUFF is still used by various amateur radio guys
    (or similar electronic enthusiasts) and students. It's not being developed
    further.
    I'm not certain, but if you're willing to expand your scope to "free software"
    rather than "open source" software, Ansoft SV is much more powerful than PUFF
    (it includes a planar EM simulator for starters!) and very much worth looking
    into.

    Yes, still use it now and then. It's been upgraded a few times, see:

    Appcad.

    Sonnet Lite.

    TXline.

    ATLC.
