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.
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
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
will add miriad to your current (csh) shell.
