|This software was developed by Chien-Hwa Chang (James) under the auspices of Computational Electronics Research at the University of Maryland (CERUM) directed by Dr. Neil Goldsman.|
Note: This is a slight revision from the setup method handed out in
class. There have been no fundamental changes, only simplifications. The
updated method is slightly easier to use. If you have already copied the
12 necessary files from the 648W directory before Sunday night (12/8), you
may want to recopy them (Step 2). James has made some changes to the Matlab
files. Also, copy the "DD" interface to your directory. It will
simplify your command line execution (see Step 3 below). Thanks.
1) create a symbolic link in your directoryln -s ~eug/648W 648W
(Please create the symbolic link exactly as described. The system will not work otherwise.)
2) copy some files to your directorycp 648W/james/* .
(It requires that you have already created the symbolic link as described in step 1.)
You should now have the following 12 files in your directory:
648W (symbolic link)
3) execute James's DD program from your directory
DD inputfile (rather than "648W/james/DD inputfile ")
(Please execute this line from the directory in your account which includes the symbolic link created in step 1 and the files that you have copied in step 2.)
*Please log on to a Sun workstation to run the software.
If you wish to run James's DD program in the background, use the following line:
nice -5 DD inputfile > dump &
(This will allow you to log out without disrupting the program. You can then check back later to view the results.)
