2 Installation

This release is meant for the Linux platform. If you wish to use it on Windows or OS X, you will have to make some code changes (e.g., use platform-specific C++ system calls).

We compiled and tested the code using: 0in

We assume you have placed the alchemy.tgz file in the directory /home. Unzip and untar the file with the command tar xvfz alchemy.tgz. The /home/alchemy directory should be created. Henceforth we refer to /home/alchemy as ALCHDIR.

In ALCHDIR/src/makefile, you should ensure that the GCC, FLEX, and BISON variables are correctly set to your g++ compiler, Flex lexical analyzer generator, and Bison parser generator, respectively. (If you do not have Flex and Bison installed on your system, you can obtain them from: http://www.gnu.org/software/flex and www.gnu.org/software/bison.)

To compile the code, simply type make depend; make in the ALCHDIR/src directory. The executables will be compiled into ALCHDIR/bin. You may wish to change the BIN variable in makefile to place the compiled executables in a different directory.
