9EXPGUI.

11<H2>0. Prerequisites</H2>
12
13I will assume that you already have the Tcl/Tk package loaded on your computer. If this
14is not true, please see
15<A HREF="http://rrdjazz.nist.gov/~toby/tclpkgs.html">
16http://rrdjazz.nist.gov/~toby/tclpkgs.html
17</A> for installation instructions.
18Likewise, I will assume you have also loaded the appropriate GSAS release, if not see
19<A HREF="http://rrdjazz.nist.gov/~toby/unixgsas.html">
20http://rrdjazz.nist.gov/~toby/unixgsas.html
21</A> for installation instructions.
22
23<P>More information about EXPGUI, including information on how it
24can be customized, can be found on web pages <A HREF="http://rrdjazz.nist.gov/~toby/expgui/expgui.html">expgui.html</A>
25and <A HREF="http://rrdjazz.nist.gov/~toby/expgui/expgui_cfg.html">expgui_cfg.html</A>, found in the gsas/expgui/doc directory.

33<P>
34If you want to try the latest release (which may not have gotten
35a lot of testing, but probably has new bug fixes and capabilities) shift-click
36on <A HREF="ftp://rrdjazz.nist.gov/bt1/gsas/expgui_ALPHA.tar.gz">

392. EXPGUI Installation</H2>
40A few short steps are needed to load EXPGUI on your computer.
41<H4>
422.1 Create a directory and restore the files</H4>
43The EXPGUI scripts are set up to be run from a <B>subdirectory in the main GSAS
44directory</B>, by convention I assume the directory name <tt>expgui</tt>, but this is
45not required. Thus, if you have located the GSAS package in
46<TT>/usr/local/gsas</TT> (so that there is a directory
47<TT>/usr/local/gsas/exe</TT>, <TT>/usr/local/gsas/data</TT>, ...)
48I assume you will put
49these files in <TT>/usr/local/gsas/expgui</TT> but any subdirectory,
50such as <TT>/usr/local/gsas/tcl</TT> will work fine.
51Change the subsequent commands if GSAS is located somewhere
52other than <TT>/usr/local/gsas</TT>.
53
54<PRE>
55            cd    /usr/local/gsas
56            mkdir expgui
57            cd    expgui
58            gunzip <  [/path]expgui.tar.gz  | tar xvf -
59</PRE>
60<P>When restoring the GSAS files from the tar file,
61note that <TT>[/path]</TT> in the example above indicates the location
62where you downloaded the tar file in section 2, above.
63
64<H4>
652.2a Installing a shortcut to EXPGUI in .cshrc</H4>
66<P>To use EXPGUI, you probably need to create an easy way to access it.
67One way to do this is to add an alias to your ~/.cshrc file:
68<PRE>
69                cat >> ~/.cshrc
70                alias expgui "wish /usr/local/gsas/expgui/expgui"
71                ^D
72</PRE>
73<H4>
742.2b Installing EXPGUI in the path</H4>
75<P>
76Another way to simplify access to EXPGUI
77is to create a file which will execute the GUI script from
78a command in your system's path, for example <TT>/usr/bin</TT>.
79<PRE>
80                cat > /usr/bin/expgui
81                wish /usr/local/gsas/expgui/expgui
82                ^D
83                chmod +x /usr/bin/expgui
84</PRE>
85<H4>
862.2c Linking EXPGUI in the path</H4>
87<P>
88Another way to simplify access to EXPGUI
89is to create a link in your system's path to the GUI script.
90Note that you may need to modify the first line of
91<TT>/usr/local/gsas/expgui/expgui</TT>, if wish is located somewhere
92other than <TT>/usr/local/bin/wish</TT>.
93
94<PRE>
95                chmod +x /usr/local/gsas/expgui/expgui
96                ln -s /usr/local/gsas/expgui/expgui /usr/bin/expgui
97</PRE>
98
99<em>Note that in the above commands </em><TT>^D</TT><em> means control-D.</em>
