   13 Executive summary
   14 
   15    Building vfplot is quite standard: the usual
   16 
   17 ./configure
   18 make
   19 su
   20 make install
   21 
   22    Use the --prefix option to ./configure if you want to install elsewhere
   23    than /usr/local.
   24 
   25    See ./configure --help for a full list of configuration options.
   26 
   27 Optional features
   28 
   29    If the NetCDF library is found then vfplot will be able to read GMT grd
   30    files.
   31 
   32    If the matio library is found then vfplot will be able to read mat
   33    (Matlab binary) files.
   34 
   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.
   38 
   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.
   42 
   43    If the zlib library is found then the graphics state files will be
   44    compressed with gzip (see the --graphic-state option).
   45 
   46 Platform specific notes
   47 
   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.
   51 
   52 Windows XP with Cygwin
   53 
   54    The program is tested on Windows XP with the Cygwin POSIX compatibility
   55    layer.
   56 
   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.
   61 
   62 OS X
   63 
   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.
