General installation

All components can be installed in three ways:

  1. download a tar file, unpack it, and proceed along the README file. The tar files contain the tool, template configuration files and additional components if applicable. The tar files are available in the column 'download'.
  2. use dfosInstall -t <tool_name>; dfosInstall performs the above actions for you
  3. use dfosExplorer which checks your installation, recommends upgrades or new installations and performs them on your request.

The third option is recommended, alternatively option 2. The first option is always available but only necessary to create .dfosrc and obtain dfosInstall and dfosExplorer. Find the overall strategy to obtain a complete installation from scratch here.

Use the top navigation bar to find the tool documentation. 'Version' and 'date' give you the latest version and date available. 'Download' links to the tar file. 'History' displays the history file with useful information about the evolution of the tool, changes and backwards compatibility.
