What is TIPSY?
TIPSY is an interactive X-windows display program with which
N-body systems can be manipulated and displayed. Modeled after
the Santa Cruz/Lick image processing package
it consists of a command line interpreter, that
understands a large number of predefined commands that display and
manipulate N-body systems.
To install TIPSY, first
obtain the tar file from
un-tar it, configure and make the tipsy executable, e.g.:
tar xf tipsy.tar
cd tipsy* (a directory like tipsy-2.1.5 will be created)
This should have created a single executable
tipsy . You can also add the man directory to your
MANPATH environment variable to get access to online help
with the usual UNIX man tools (man, xman, tkman). Within tipsy or
NEMO you must
set the TIPSYHELPDIR to be the man directory for online help.
