Well, the text of the readme file indicates this is less than a full
version, due to some features having VMS specific calls. Also, it kinda
sounds like a beta product.
Thanks for the encouragement...

INSTALLATION PROCEDURE FOR EGCG PROGRAMS
(UNIX VERSION 7.2)
(1) Technical Note
Thei programs resemble the GCGEMBL programs similar to the ones distributed
in the 7.0 VMS Version of GCG unsupported.bck. There have been some enhance-
ments made by the authors Peter Rice (EMBL) and Rodrigo Lopez (Oslo). Some
programs are omitted due to VMS specific calls, and some have not been
converted successfully yet. Rodrigo Lopez and Jack Leunissen (Nejmegen) have
actively contributed to the UNIX port done by Reinhard Doelz (Basel). The
verified operating systems include
3.10 compilers on IRIX
SUN OS 4.1.2
(2) Installation of the software
It i is assumed that you logged in as source code maintainer, and have execu-
ted gcg and gcgsupport. Next, go to a free disk and issue the following com-
mands. The egcg programs use about 20 mbyte of disk space in their final con-
figuration. To build the programs, a space of 60 MBytes is recommedend.
If you don't already have the egcg tree (Look in $GCGCOREROOT/gcgunsupportd),
unpack the files with
% uncompress egcg.tar.Z
% tar -xvof egcg.tar
Next, go to the sysscript directory
% cd egcg/egcgcore/sysscript
and make the makefile with the corresponding toXXX command for XXX =
ultrix, irix, sun. E.g., if you used a Silicon Graphics, do a
% toirix Makefile.generic > makefile
[NOTE: If you are running SUN OS 4.1.2 or IRIX 4.0.4 please read the makefile
and edit it accordingly to reflect the necessary changes.]
and build the startup file
% make startup
Then, source it
% source ../../egcgstartup
and make the documentation (Which assumes that you use lpr on a Postscript
printer.If you don't you need to edit the file make_source.csh and replace the
lpr command with the suitable one, e.g. lpr -Ppost if 'post' is your printer).
% source make_source.csh
Next, build the package
% make all
and after having tested it, clean up the directory with
% make clean
In order to make all users run the software, insert the line
source <your path>/egcg/egcgstartup
into your gcg aliasing script. The on-line documentation will be accessible in
and the programs ara all callable by name.
(4) Changes with the next release
The port contains still some VMS remainers such as mixed-case filenames and $
characters.These are hard to track and any hint on its presence is appreciated.
All suggestions, and hints on oddities of UNIX implementation, are most
welcome if sent to the authors or embnet at comp.bioz.unibas.ch. Thanks.
