Prerequisites

Most of the programs are written in Fortran 77 or C and can be compiled with GNU tools. Currently they can be downloaded individually free of charge.

Installation

After downloading the distribution file, eg: bops2.0.tar.gz unpack this file with:

> tar xvfz bops2.0.tar.gz

After unpacking the tarball, change to the installation directory (e.g.: $HOME/bops), and look at the instructions there for compiling and running the code.
