The DOS versions are included because they are still used, and can be particularly helpful for batch execution of many series (perhaps many thousands), as may be the case with TERROR and with some multiple-series (ITER > 0) applications of TRAMO-SEATS. They are also the versions upon which some users build interfaces.
The documentation provided for the DOS versions is somewhat obsolete, because several parameters have disappeared or been modified, and some new ones are not included, and because the output produced now is considerably richer. But the DOS manual contains a set of input file examples (such as examples with regression variables), and some descriptions that are still useful. Modifications or additions are now featured only in the TSW manual; they also apply to the DOS versions.
Program TSW, the Windows version that integrates updated versions of the TRAMO (including TERROR) and SEATS programs, is possibly the most widely used version at present.
A LINUX version of TRAMO-SEATS is available. Before installation, read:

Program TERROR ("Tramo for ERRORs") is an application of TRAMO to the detection of anomalies or errors, and to quality control of data in possibly very large sets of time series. TERROR is executed as an option of TRAMO. Some examples of applications can be found in the page of papers having to do with the methodology and application of the programs.
Input file format
Saving the model is a facility whereby the model obtained for each series in a particular application can be saved (in several forms) so that it can be re-used as new observations are added. This is an important requirement for routine applications.
