Explanation to install CDAT on your system. And a few platform specific notes.
Check for platform-specific instructions in the "In Depth" section, and set the environment variable CC if needed.
Note: On some platforms the CC environment variable must be set before building.
<CDAT_INSTALL_DIRECTORY>indicates the full path name of the directory into which CDAT is to be installed and the notation
<CDAT_SRC_DIRECTORY>indicates the full path name of the directory where you uncompressed and un-tarred the CDAT source code.
The <CDAT_EXTERNALS> directory is a directory where you would like to install software that CDAT needs but is not developped by the CDAT team. These are usually needed by ANY version of CDAT. So it might be a good idea to build them once only somewhere outside of the <CDAT_INSTALL_DIRECTORY> so you can reuse for the next version w/o rebuilding them. By default it is set to <CDAT_INSTALL_DIRECTORY>/Externals.
<MY_PYTHON> referes to the location of your Python if you wish to use your own python (beware it ight not work if it is too old or doesn't have some features needed by CDAT)
cd to the directory where svn put your version:
# Terms in between  are optional ./configure --prefix=CDAT_INSTALL_DIRECTORY [--with-externals=CDAT_EXTERNALS] [--with-python=MY_PYTHON] [--with-opendap] # use ./configure --help for a list of all options! # Clean previous build, just in csae make clean # And finally make and build cdat make
Wait a bit and that should do it.
CDMS Only Express Installation Instructions
Check for platform-specific instructions above and set the environment variable CC if needed.
To install a minimal configuration supporting CDMS only:
cd <CDAT_SRC_DIRECTORY> ./configure --prefix=
