2 THIS FILE IS DEPRECATED - 20-Dec-2005
3
4 The files in this directory support building the Tcl/Tk
5 version of ths Ascend modeling system using the jam* build tool.
6
7 The following files are included:
8
9 Jamfile - build instructions for the Ascend libs
10 Jamrules.in - configuration & custom build rules used by Jamfile
11
12 The build also requires ../../jam/Jamrules_general and
13 ../../jam/Jambase. This system builds the Ascend executable
14 as well as a static library of Tcl/Tk interface functions.
15 Installation of the resulting program is still under construction.
16
17 The Ascend jam build system currently supports building the libraries
18 under Windows using the MSVC, Borland, MinGW, and Watcom** compilers
19 (extension to Linux/gcc is on the todo list). With use of the
20 included Jambase file, it should work with both the original and ftjam
21 variants of jam. The system was developed primarily using ftjam.
22
23 Automatic processing of Jamrules.in to Jamrules by configure is
24 not currently implemented. Until it is, users will need to manually
25 copy Jamrules.in to Jamrules and edit Jamrules to match their
26 preferenes & configuration.
27
28 The interface library (libasc_tcltk) is built in
29 ./CONFIGTYPE/COMPILER/interface, while the executable
30 is built in ./CONFIGTYPE/COMPILER where
31 CONFIGTYPE = Debug, Release
32 COMPILER = bcc, msvc, mingw, watcom, linix
33
34 There are several dependent libraries which must be provided to
35 successfully link the Ascend executable:
36
37 libasc_compiler
38 libasc_general
39 libasc_packages
40 libasc_solver
41 libasc_utilities
42 tcl80
43 tk80
44
45 The default location for the Ascend base libraries is
46 ../../base/jam/CONFIGTYPE/COMPILER. The default location for the Tcl/Tk
47 libraries is ../../../Tcl/lib. These may be modified by editing the
48 Jamrules file.

51 Build Instructions
52
53 1. jam must be installed and configured for the compiler in use.
54
55 2. Copy Jamrules.in to Jamrules.
56
57 3. Manually edit ../../jam/Jamrules_general, Jamrules and (if
58 necessary) Jamfile to set configuration and local directory
59 options.
60
61 4. Run jam from using the provided Jambase:
62 jam -f ../../jam/Jambase ascend
63
64 -------------------------------------------------------------------------
65 Notes:
66
67 * jam is an open source, multi-platform build tool
68 which is available in several flavors. These include
69 the original (http://www.perforce.com) and ftjam
70 (http://www.freetype.org/jam/index.html) variants,
71 among others.
72
73 ** Currently, Open Watcom 1.3 can compile the Ascend sources but
74 cannot link the executable. This is because Watcom does not supply
75 the required IEEE math functions isnan() and copysign(). Ascend does
76 not currently provide these support functions.
