The installation of the software is very straightforward.
- download and save the distribution tar file.
- Untar the file to a convenient installation directory of your choosing. The software is run from the installation directory, using one of prepvm, diffprep_gui.sav or diffprep.sav which you should now see in your installation directory. Usage is described in detail in the Usage chapter.
- OPTIONAL: create a directory named "DIFF_PREP_WORK" in the current user's home directory. This is required for storing settings files and for writing of temporary files. If you do not create this it will be created for you by the software.
Instructions for running the software are in the Usage section.
