To compile PARMGRIDGEN, the serial code of MGRIDGEN must have been installed on the system first. PARMGRIDGEN-1.0 contains the serial library as well and it is built automatically. The distribution of PARMGRIDGEN-1.0 consists of a Unix gziped tar file whose size is approximately 2.6 megabytes. After downloading PARMGRIDGEN-1.0 you need to uncompress it and untar it. This is achieved by executing the following commands:
gunzip ParMGridGen-1.0.tar.gz tar -xvf ParMGridGen-1.0.tar
At this point you should have a directory named ParMGridGen-1.0. This directory contains MGRIDGEN's and PARMGRIDGEN's source code. To build the libraries, follow the instructions in the file ParMGridGen-1.0/INSTALL. Instructions describing how to use the libraries can be found at ParMGridGen-1.0/Doc/manual-parmgridgen.[pdf][ps].
