This section details how to install the GAMMA platform. There
MUST be a valid C++ compiler on your computer system before
GAMMA can work, so that will be the starting point for the
instructions. The compiler should be ANSI compatible and
contain the standard C++ library libstdc++. Choose a link (to the
left under Installation) that fits the computer type you will be
performing the installation on.
The primary method of installing GAMMA itself is to download the
source code package and compile it. If you have a working
compiler, and you must, this should be relatively
Alternative ways of installing GAMMA are to obtain the binaries.
This is also easy, providing that they have been built
for your computer system. Since the binaries are system
specific, it is likely that they will not exist for your
system unless it is common.
Finally, installation of GAMMA documentaion,
examples, etc. should be done separately. These are NOT
required to build GAMMA programs and NOT included in either the
source code package or any binary package. Their installation
is merely to unpack them from the base GAMMA directory.
