The Orchids sources are available at the svn repository at one of the following URLs:
https://svn.lsv.ens-cachan.fr/orchids/stable/2.0/(stable version 2.0)
https://svn.lsv.ens-cachan.fr/orchids/branches/sentucq/orchids_new_version/(latest development version)
For clarity, let us put this URL into a shell variable, which we shall reuse throughout the documentation:
Orchids is meant to be compiled on a Linux 32 or 64 bit distribution. It should compile under any Unix, including Mac OS X, too.
We shall also use the shell variable
$OHOME throughout. This will be the place where the Orchids source subdirectory will be created. Go to a directory of your choice, then type:
To retrieve the sources, open a shell (a command line window), and type the following if this is the first time:
svn --username guest co
guest‘ as login. Use `
guest‘ as password, too.)
This will create a subdirectory
$OHOME (co is for “checkout”).
To retrieve the sources again later, or to update to a newer version, you’ll have to enter the
orchids directory, and tell
svn to “update”:
cd $OHOME/2.0 svn up
Congratulations! You have now downloaded the Orchids sources. You should now proceed and compile Orchids.
