Installation

The cora package uses the standard GNU autoconfig build system. Installing the program thus requires the following three commands:


   ./configure  [options] 

make
make install

The ./configure script can take a number of optional arguments. You can use ./configure - -help to get a list. Most interesting perhaps is the - -prefix=DIR argument, which can be used to change the default installation directory prefix (the default prefix is /usr/local, i.e., the executable would be installed in the directory /usr/local/bin).
The pgplot and GTK+ libraries will be searched for automatically, but the search can fail in some cases. In order to customize the specification of where these libraries are installed on your system, a script (cora_setup.ksh or cora_setup.tcsh) is delivered with a number of environment variables, which are read by the configure script, and should be modified to your needs. With the correct setting, the script must simply be executed before running ./configure (the file config.cache might have to be deleted, if an earlier configure execution failed to find libraries).
The locations of libraries and include file can also be given on the command line with ./configure, e.g. ./configure -with-pgplot-lib=PFX.
