Windows binaries

A self-extracting binary distribution (including documentation) of the whole GILDAS package is available in the download area for Windows 1998, 2000, xp, NT. Just pick the last release named

gildas-win-mmmyya.msi (Sources and documentation)

where mmm are the 3 first letters of the current month, yy are the last two digits of the current year and a a letter defining the minor version of the monthly release: a for the initial monthly release, b for the monthly release with the first bug fix, c for the monthly release with the second bug fix, and so on.

Then follow this guide to install it. This version is supported on a best effort basis only.

Mac OSX binaries

A self-extracting binary distribution is available here. Please note that this distribution is packaged on a best-effort basis only by S.~Maret. Bug reports should still be submitted to the GILDAS team but there is currently no mechanism that ensure that the bug fixes will go quickly in the binary distribution. If you need a bug fix that is not yet in the binary distribution, just compile the sources by yourself (cf. next section).

UNIX/Linux/OSX sources

UNIX/Linux version of GILDAS are distributed only as sources because binaries are not portable (due to the many different possible combinations of processors, operating system and compilers). We thus tried to ease building as much as possible: if GILDAS \hyperlink{gag:depend}{dependencies} are correctly installed, building the binaries should just need the following sequence of commands:

shell-prompt> gunzip gildas-src-mmmyya.tar.gz
shell-prompt> tar -xvf gildas-src-mmmyya.tar
shell-prompt> cd gildas-src-mmmyya
shell-prompt> source admin/gildas-env.sh
shell-prompt> make
shell-prompt> make install

Exactly the same sequence of command should be used for Mac OSX in case the binary distribution does not match your needs.

Visit the download area and get the last monthly release named:

gildas-src-mmmyya.tar.gz

where mmm are the 3 first letters of the current month, yy are the last two digits of the current year and a a letter defining the minor version of the monthly release: a for the initial monthly release, b for the monthly release with the first bug fix, c for the monthly release with the second bug fix, and so on.

Daily releases are there just as a convenience for beta testers. We strongly discourage standard user to get them.

Compiled documentation

In contrast with executables, compiled PDF and HTML documentations are inherently portable. We thus also distribute them (though separately from sources).

Visit the download area and get the last monthly release named:

gildas-doc-mmmyya.tar.gz

where mmmyya has the same meaning as above.
