13 Executive summary
15 Building vfplot is quite standard: the usual
20 make install
22 Use the --prefix option to ./configure if you want to install elsewhere
23 than /usr/local.
25 See ./configure --help for a full list of configuration options.
27 Optional features
29 If the NetCDF library is found then vfplot will be able to read GMT grd
32 If the matio library is found then vfplot will be able to read mat
33 (Matlab binary) files.
35 If you want support for Gerris flow solver files use the
36 --enable-gerris option in configuration. You will need to have a recent
37 version of the Gerris software.
39 If the pthread (POSIX thread) library is found then vfplot will support
40 multithreaded force calculations giving a substantial speedup on
41 multiprocessor hardware.
43 If the zlib library is found then the graphics state files will be
44 compressed with gzip (see the --graphic-state option).
46 Platform specific notes
48 The program should compile on any modern POSIX operating system with a
49 C99 compiler. It is developed on Linux on the x86, AMD64 and Sparc
50 architectures with the GNU C compiler.
52 Windows XP with Cygwin
54 The program is tested on Windows XP with the Cygwin POSIX compatibility
57 To build, first use the Cygwin startup.exe program to install the gcc,
58 make and zlib pacakges. Then obtain, compile and install the netcdf and
59 libmatio libraries listed above. Finally, configure with
60 --disable-pthread then make and install as usual.
62 OS X
64 The POSIX thread (pthread) library supplied with the OS does not
65 include some functionality on which vfplot relies (in particular,
66 barriers). That functionality can be provided by a built-in
67 implementation with the --enable-pthread-extra configuration option.
