first, download the source code tarball at:
(the filename might have to be updated with future versions)
due to the nature of the makefiles, you have to copy it to the “home” user directory, not any downloads directory, so in the terminal, cd to the downloads directory, then; (note, the $ preceding each line indicates that this line is to be entered into the terminal, it is not a command itself)
$ cd ~/
$ tar -xzf cgs32j.tar.gz
now you need to choose the correct makefile for your operating system.
will output a list of the files in the directory. makelnx is “Makefile for Linux” and makeosx is “makefile for OSX”
choosing the makefile for your system, run it using make -f. the -f flag allows you to choose a particular file, otherwise “make” will be confused by the multiple files available
$ make -f makelnx
then you can use the program as normal.
sweet! maybe now i’ll write a “getting started with RUMP/GENPLOT” article, since learning basic analysis is horrible.
