6. Introduction

In this chapter an introduction6.1 is given how to write programs within the NEMO environment.

To the application programmer NEMO consists of a set of macro definitions and object libraries, designed for numerical work in general and stellar dynamics in particular. A basic knowledge how to program in C, and use the local operating system to get the job done, is assumed. If you know how to work with Makefile's, even the better.

After reviewing how the NEMO environment should be present, Section [*] describes some of the available macro packages. How an example program is written, compiled and used in NEMO is shown in Section [*]. In Section [*] we will show how you can write programs in C++, and still use the NEMO libraries. Finally, Section [*] deals with those people who insist on using FORTRAN,
