MCSim is a simulation package, written in C. It allows you to:
· design your own statistical or simulation models (eventually dynamic, via ODEs),
· perform Monte Carlo stochastic simulations,
· Bayesian inference through Markov Chain Monte Carlo simulations.
The simplest way to compile the MCSim package is:
1. `cd' to the directory containing the package's source code (it is
actually the directory where this README file resides) and type
`./configure' to configure the package for your system. If you're
using `csh' on an old version of System V, you might need to type
`sh ./configure' instead to prevent `csh' from trying to execute
Running `configure' may take a while. While running, it prints some
messages telling which features it is checking for.
2. Type `make' to compile the package.
3. Optionally, type `make check' to run any self-tests that come with
4. Type `make install' to install the programs and any data files and
5. You can remove the program binaries and object files from the
source code directory by typing `make real-clean'. To also remove the
files that `configure' created (so you can compile the package for
a different kind of computer), type `make dist-clean'. There is
also a `make maintainer-clean' target which undoes the installation.
