[1262]4= Compiling =
[1262]6 1. If you checked out this project from the subversion repository you
7    must run '`bootstrap`' to initialize the build system.
8 2. Issue '`./configure`' to create the Makefiles. Optionally run
9    configure with '`--enable-debug`', which will turn on debug
10    options.
11 3. Compile with '`make`'.
[1303]12 4. Optionally do '`make check`' to run test programs.
13 5. '`make doc`' will generate documentation.
14 6. Issue '`make install`' to install the package on your system,
15    documentation will not be installed if documentation was not
16    generated above. Default installation location is `/usr/local`,
17    this can be changed with
18    '`./configure --prefix=/dir/to/install/to`'.
[953]20If you keep your working copy up to date with the repository you must
21issue 'autoreconf' in the yat root directory when '' is
25= Requirements =
[1262]27Except for the obviously needed C++ compiler there are a few packages
28and programs required for compiling yat and generate supporting
29material. The configure script will look for required programs and
30report failure to meet the requirements. Here we list some of the
31requirements, but omit required standard utilities such as libtool and
32sed since these are normally available.
[1262]34== Required packages ==
[1262]36=== GSL ===
[1262]38GNU Scientific Library, [ GSL] version
[1287]391.8 or later.
[1262]41=== BLAS ===
[1262]43A C implementation of Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms
44([ BLAS]) is required. GSL comes with a
45reference implementation, but you should consider getting a hardware
46optimized implementation. ATLAS provides optimized BLAS (see below).
[1325]48=== Boost ===
50[ Boost] version 1.33 or later.
[1262]52=== quiet nan ===
[1262]54Quiet NaN's must be supported.
[1262]56== Optional packages ==
[1262]58=== ATLAS ===
[1059]60GSL supplies a reference implementation of BLAS. You may want to
[1262]61consider using hardware optimized BLAS. The
62[ ATLAS] software provides an
63automatic hardware optimized BLAS library.
65The detection of ATLAS is supported by the yat configuration script
66but in many cases the ATLAS libraries are installed in
[1262]67non-conventional directory locations. As an example, on Fedora 8,
68ATLAS libraries are
[1059]69located in /usr/lib/atlas or /usr/lib64/atlas depending on your
70hardware architecture. If you have ATLAS installed and the configure
71script fails to locate it, try to add the location to the atlas
[1078]72libraries when running configure:
[1180]74  #> LDFLAGS="-L/usr/lib64/atlas" ./configure
[1262]76=== Doxygen ===
[1272]78[ Doxygen] is required for generation of the
[1262]79API documentation
[1272]81= Documentation =
[1272]83The API documentation for the latest release is availabe in PDF and
84HTML and can be found through If you wish
85to build a local copy, issue `make doc` and you will find the
86documents in directory `doc/`.
