Compiling ASPECT and generating documentation#

After downloading ASPECT and having built the libraries it builds on, you can compile it by typing


on the command line (or make -jN if you have multiple processors in your machine, where N is the number of processors). This builds the ASPECT executable which will reside in the build directory and will be named aspect. To run ASPECT from the main source directory, you would need to reference it as ./build/aspect. If you intend to modify ASPECT for your own experiments, you may want to also generate documentation about the source code. This can be done using the command

  cd doc; make

which assumes that you have the doxygen documentation generation tool installed. Most Linux distributions have packages for doxygen. The result will be the file doc/doxygen/index.html that is the starting point for exploring the documentation.
