|Notice: The GLAST code has not been released to the public and is for use by members of the LAT Collaboration only!
- If you are using a public installation, the installations at the University of Washington and at SLAC already have MRvcmt installed, set up, and available to you.
To use MRvcmt on a SLAC Linux machine refer to: Run Gleam w. MRvcmt (SLAC Public).
- If you are already using CMT and wish to use MRvcmt as a frontend, you likely have the required software already - with the possible exception of the Ruby Interpreter.
- Example Commands and Responses assume the Windows platform. On Linux, delimiters within file paths should, as usual, be forward slashes (/).
You will need to have the basic prerequisites, a GLAST-supported C++ compiler, CVS, and CMT installed on your machine.
If you have a Windows machine:
- If you have not already done so, install:
If you have a Linux machine, see:
Also see: Ruby Interpreter.
Troubleshooting Tip: If installing a Windows compiler, be sure to set up your PATH to the executable devenv.exe, normally located in:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Common7\IDE

Checking out the MRvcmt Package
To check out the MRvcmt package from the GLAST Concurrent Versions System (CVS):
Note: It is recommended that you install MRvcmt in your \glast\tools directory as shown in the example below.
Determine the latest tagged version of MRvcmt as follows:
Go to http://www-glast.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/viewcvs/MRvcmt/.
Click on cmt, then click on requirements.
Look for the most recent "CVS Tag".
Enter (from the DOS command prompt if you are a Windows user; Linux users: please change the delimiters to forward slashes (/):
Use CVS to checkout MRvcmt onto your machine by entering:
cvs co -d v0r24p2 -r v0r24p2 MRvcmt
This command creates a subdirectory named v0r20 and copies all of the MRvcmt files into that directory.
Be sure you are checking out the latest tagged version. If you have a problem, use v0r20 as shown in the example which worked at the time this was written.
Tip: If MRvcmt fails to launch, verify that you have the executable (devenv.exe) for the Windows compiler in your PATH (e.g., C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Common7\IDE).
Create a shortcut to the MRvcmt executable, prepend it with "ruby" and place it on your desktop. (See Creating a Shortcut to MRvcmt.)
