INSTALLATION AND RELEASE NOTES
The distribution consists of two main modules both of which contain all the
relevant source code (most of which is released under the
as well as some precompiled executables.
- The SPIDER module is used for computations that do not require
graphical interaction or visualization.
The distribution contains precompiled statically linked executables for Linux on
64 bit Intel and AMD based computers.
SPIDER is written in FORTRAN 2003 and "Makefiles" are provided to build SPIDER on
Linux, IBM AIX, OSX, and some legacy systems.
- The Web module is used for operations that
involve graphical interaction with the data such as display of
image files. It is a point-and-click interface
that uses either the Motif/X-Window system or Java (JWeb).
The distribution contains precompiled Motif/X-Window executables for:
Linux on AMD and Intel.
The Motif/X-Window version of Web is written in C and
"Makefiles" are provided to build Web on Linux, OSX, and some legacy systems.
These "Makefiles" will have have to be modified depending on your choice of compiler,
location of libraries, etc.
The Legacy Java version of Web can be used on Linux on Intel & AMD,
as well as Microsoft Windows. The Java version lacks much of the
functionality of the other Web module.
The distribution includes: Java Run Time Environment,
Java Advanced Imaging Run Time Environment, and Jweb code.
