GPOP - Installation

  When you are to use Windows binaries, skip first two steps (Unpacking and Building) and proceed to Windows binaries.


  1. Change directory to where has been copied.
  2. Unzip as;
  3. GPOP source files are unpacked in the newly created directory ./gpop/source.
  4. GPOP sample input files can be found in ./gpop/sample.
  5. HTML document files can be found in ./gpop/doc.


  1. Change directory to gpop/source created when gpop source files are unpacked. (step-3 of above)
  2. Investigate the sample makefiles, choose one, and edit it to fit your environment, if necessary.  Followings are short descriptions of sample makefiles.
    makeGnu.make  for GNU compilers (GCC4) on Unix-like platforms including Cygwin and MinGW+MSYS
    makeGnu3.make  for older GNU compilers (GCC3) on Unix-like platforms
    makeIntelLinux.make  for Intel compilers on Linux
    makeIntelWin.make  for Intel compilers on Windows
  3. On Unix-like platforms, build executables by 'make' as
    make -f makefile-name
    On genuine Windows development environment, use 'nmake' command as
    nmake -f makefile-name
  4. Remove temporary files as
    (n)make -f makefile-name clean

Windows binaries

  For Windows, pre-built binary files may be useful since no building tool is supplied with the operating system.   It should be noted that GPOP tools should be used in [Command Prompt] on Windows.   If you are new to the [Command Prompt], first learn how to use it.   See, for example, Command Prompt Basics.
  1. Using the built-in tool on Windows, unpack the pre-built Windows binaries (   You may use other unpacking tools if you like.
  2. Binary executable files can be found in the folder, gpop-win32-binary.   Note that the location of this folder depends on how you unplack the archive.
  3. Unpack the source package ( to use sample input files.
