This page is dedicated to the distribution of mini_ker and mini_ker related softwares, in a manner classically used by free software projects (with the help of the autotools). The main page for mini_ker is here (french).
Here are the preprocessors required by the other softwares:
LAPACK is needed by mini_ker. The cernlib may be needed and is recommended, although it is a big library containing much more than what is needed for mini_ker.
Two environements are available to build models with mini_ker. One uses make, and the other is built around cmz. The environment using make is minimal, but may be easily integrated into the standard UNIX text-based development environment. cmz provides more features than a bare make but don't integrate smoothly with the UNIX build environment. You have the choice!
mini_ker is known to work on fedora linux, centos, debian and ubuntu, Mac OS X, solaris and windows with cygwin.
Install car2txt, mortran, lapack, optionally the cernlib and then mini_ker.
cmz requires car2txt to build. mortran and the cernlib should also be installed for mini_ker. You then need to install cmz and the zoom_utils package.
Lastly, the mini_ker car file, the
file and other items are available at
they are also required.
A self-contained Mini_ker distribution for Mini_ker with make, containing car2txt and mp2a that can be used to quickly build, install and use Mini_ker is also available: self_mini_ker.tar.gz. This may be very convenient, but using proper packaging and install procedures is in general cleaner.
The full mini_ker manual is available online, the installation instructions are here. The pdf version of the manual is also available.
