LINUS is written in Python although some routines are also provided as C code.
The C routines will be called if they are compiled but they are not necessary.
Therefore you should have installed on your system PYTHON and a C compiler.
If you are running Python on a Intel 386-compatible processor you should also obtain PSYCO, a specializing compiler, which will speed up LINUS significantly.
This distribution should install on most flavors of UNIX including MacOSX.
The LINUS distribution is a compressed tar archive:
which can be unpacked with a command similar to:
gunzip -c linus.tar.gz | tar xvf -
When you unpack this distribution you will get two directories below the linus/ directory:
The LINUS_2_4 directory contains an installation file called
As root, run the following command in this directory:
/path/to/your/python setup.py install
This will install everything in your /path/to/your/python[version]/site-packages/ directory.
After installing the LINUS distribution as described above add the following lines to your .cshrc (or .tcshrc, etc) file (with approriate editing for python version and path).
setenv LINUS24 '/usr/local/lib/python[version]/site-packages/pylinus_2_4'
alias python '/usr/local/bin/python[version]'
Or if you use a .bash file:
