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.

Step 1: grab the source 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 -

Step 2: install using your own compiler

  miriad_cvs/install/install.miriad

This shell script does have some optional arguments, but you should not need to supply any.

Step 3: 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.

For example, for a csh style shell

  source miriad_cvs/miriad_start.csh

will add miriad to your current (csh) shell.
