Installation Guide


This appendix provides information related to the installation and use of the circuit editor GUI (hereafter referred to as DigiTcl) and the simulator engine, as described in this report. These instructions are valid at the time of writing, but may not be valid for subsequent releases of the software. At the time of writing, the current version of DigiTcl is 0.1.0 and should be considered a beta release.

These installation instructions assume that the target machine is running a recent release of the X Window System (Version 11), on a UNIX-like operating system. Tcl 7.4 and Tk 4.0 (preferably patch level 3) must also have been installed on the target machine before DigiTcl can be used.gif A C++ compiler is also required so that the simulator engine can be compiled. Version 1.2.4 of the GNU gzip compression utility must also be available on the machine so that the archive file can be decompressed before being extracted. The standard complement of UNIX utilities will also be required. The package may be installed and used without root privileges, if necessary.
