STAMP was developed on a Sun SPARCstation, and later on a Silicon Graphics
system. Consequently it may encounter difficulties running on other systems.
Most of STAMP was written in C, thus STAMP requires an ansi-C compiler (e.g. gcc) for installation.
STAMP should be received as a gzipped tar file, so must be uncompressed and de-tarred to expose all files and directories.
On most UNIX systems, one can install STAMP with:
gunzip STAMP.tarfile.gz tar xvf STAMP.tarfile cd stamp.4.1 BUILD <system type> (e.g. BUILD sgi)
The systems that are available are:
sgi (IRIX64 version 6.2)
mips4-sgi (IRIX64 R10K version 6.2)
dec (OSF1 version 4.0)
sun (SunOS sol4 5.5.1)
linux (Linux 2.0.36)
All of these are specified by a makefile in the src/ sub-directory. If your system isn't one of the above, then you can probably just use the one that is nearest, and edit the makefile accordingly. Note that the above are just the systems that I have easy access to. Note also that there are only very few differences between the various makefiles. I haven't been able to test the `linux' version as robustly as the others owing to limited time and access.
Note that there are several precompiled executables in the distribution. Files found in the directories bin/sgi, bin/sun, bin/dec, bin/linux. You will overwrite these if you attempt a `BUILD' as discussed above. Note also that these binaries may be slightly out of date, as their creation depends entirely on the machine I have access to.
Once the executables are made, they will be put into the directory bin/<system-type>, and these can then either be included in your path name, or linked/copied to some central directory, such as /usr/local/bin.
