Installation from source
Installation from Source
In a nutshell grab the (CVS enabled) source code, and run the install script. If that fails, you should consult the more detailed installation guidelines.
Step1: grab the code
curl ftp://ftp.astro.umd.edu/progs/bima/miriad.tar.gz | tar zxf - or wget -O - ftp://ftp.astro.umd.edu/progs/bima/miriad.tar.gz | tar zxf -
Step2: install using your own compiler
This shell script does have some optional arguments, but you should not need to supply any.
Now source the appropriate startup file, depending on your shell, and miriad should now be usable in your shell. You can also make this permanent by adding this to your ~/.cshrc or ~/.bashrc file.
