odesolv - Initial value problem solver for Tcl
This package is a Tcl extension for the solution of Ordinary
Differential Equations (ODE's). Refer to the user documentation
in the 'doc/' directory for more details on its use.
Copyright (c) 2007 by Kevin B. Kenny. All rights reserved.
This package is a freely available open source package. You can do
virtually anything you like with it, such as modifying it, redistributing
it, and selling it either in whole or in part. See the file
"license.terms" for complete information.
The following is a short description of the files you will find in
the sample extension.
aclocal.m4 Generated file. Do not edit. Autoconf uses this as input
when generating the final configure script. See "tcl.m4"
ChangeLog Log of changes made when developers have updated this module.
configure Generated file. Do not edit. This must be regenerated
anytime configure.in or tclconfig/tcl.m4 changes.
configure.in Configure script template. Autoconf uses this file as input
to produce the final configure script.
license.terms Legal terms under which this package may be redistributed.
Makefile.in Makefile template. The configure script uses this file to
produce the final Makefile.
pkgIndex.tcl.in Package index template. The configure script will use
this file as input to create pkgIndex.tcl.
README This file
blas/ Fortran source code for several modules of the Basic
Linear Algebra System that are used in the solver. These
files are taken as input when a developer runs
'make fortran-sources' and produce corresponding C files in
the 'generic/' directory. Current versions of these files
should be available from netlib.org.
doc/ Documentation source code for this package.
f2c/ Contains the files from a the 'f2c' compiler distribution
(available from netlib.org) that are needed to build the
f2c.h Basic header file with the F2C definitions.
generic/ Contains C sources for all the object code included in the
'tclode' package. Much of this material is either copied from
'libf2c' or built by applying the 'f2c' compiler to code in
the 'blas/' or 'odepack/' directories when a developer
runs 'make fortran-sources'
libf2c/ Contains C sources for the 'f2c' runtime library routines that
the Fortran code in this package requires. Updated versions
of the routines should be available from 'netlib.org'
odepack/ Contains the Fortran source code for the ODEPACK routines
that this package uses to solve ODE's. Updated versions of the
routines should be available from 'netlib.org'.
tclconfig/ This directory contains various template files that build
the configure script. They should not need modification.
install-sh Program used for copying binaries and script files
to their install locations.
tcl.m4 Collection of Tcl autoconf macros. Included by
aclocal.m4 to define SC_* macros.
tests/ This directory contains a set of scripts used by 'make test'
to test a build of 'tclode'.
tools/ This directory contains tools that are used by developers
when maintaining 'tclode'
adapt-fortran.tcl Program that takes a C source code output
from 'f2c' and adapts it to use thread-specific
data in place of COMMON blocks.
Building under most UNIX systems is easy, just run the configure script
and then run make. For more information about the build process, see
the tcl/unix/README file in the Tcl src dist. The following minimal
example will install the extension in the /opt/tcl directory.
$ cd tclode
$ ./configure --prefix=/opt/tcl
$ make install
The recommended method to build extensions under windows is to use the
Msys + Mingw build process. This provides a Unix-style build while
generating native Windows binaries. Using the Msys + Mingw build tools
means that you can use the same configure script as per the Unix build
to create a Makefile. See the tcl/win/README file for the URL of
the Msys + Mingw download.
If you have VC++ then you may install only Msys (without Mingw) and
build by prefixing the './configure' line with 'CC=cl'; the configurator
will create a Makefile suitable for Msys's 'make' command that
uses VC++ in place of mingw's 'gcc'.
The installation of a TEA package is structure like so:
PACKAGEx.y (dependent .dll files on Windows)
pkgIndex.tcl (.so|.dll files)
The main .so|.dll library file gets installed in the versioned PACKAGE
directory, which is OK on all platforms because it will be directly
referenced with by 'load' in the pkgIndex.tcl file. Dependent DLL files on
Windows must go in the bin directory (or other directory on the user's
PATH) in order for them to be found.
