There are a lot of ._* and .DS_Store files in the different directories. You can get rid of them with the commands

    find . -name "._*" -exec rm -f {} \;
    find . -name ".DS_Store" -exec rm -f {} \;

Setting up compiler

Physics Computers

To set up gcc/gfortran compiler in desired version 4.3.x type

    setup gcc v4_3_1

To see what other compiler versions are available, type

    ups list -aK+ gcc

MSI SVDL Computers

module list


Change to directory make

    cd make

execute the makefile skript (default) using the make command


the original version of makefile uses gfortran. If that does not work on your computer of platform, you probably have to modify the makefile (or install gfortran).

There should now be a version of the EZ executable in the run subdirectory off the main EZ_3_6_3 directory. To change to this diectory, do

    cd ../run


    ls -latr
