     37a central location (such as /usr/local) or you will use the RPM package.
     39<H2>0. A one-step process for Linux</H2>
     40Many Linux releases incorporate a package-loading program called RPM.
     41The RPM package file loads, <A Href="">GSAS</A> and
     42<A Href="">
     43EXPGUI</A>, as well as checks that your Linux system has been configured
     44properly to run these programs (for example, has Tcl/Tk and BLT loaded).
     45The most recent <font face="courier"></font>

     48can be found in directory

     51See the
     52<A Href="">RPM instructions</a>
     53for details on how to load this package,
     54rather than the following paragraphs.
     56<H2>1. Prerequisites</H2>
    4058I will assume that you already have the Tcl/Tk package loaded on your computer. If this

    89107A few short steps are needed to load EXPGUI on your computer.
    911092.1 Create a directory and restore the files</H3>
    92110The EXPGUI scripts are set up to be run from a <B>subdirectory in the main GSAS
    93 directory</B>, by convention I assume the directory name <tt>expgui</tt>, but this is
     111directory</B>, by convention I assume the directory name
     112<font face="courier">expgui</font>, but this is
    94113not required. Thus, if you have located the GSAS package in
    95 <TT>/usr/local/gsas</TT> (so that there is a directory
    96 <TT>/usr/local/gsas/exe</TT>, <TT>/usr/local/gsas/data</TT>, ...)
     114<FONT FACE="COURIER">/usr/local/gsas</FONT> (so that there is a directory
     115<FONT FACE="COURIER">/usr/local/gsas/exe</FONT>, <FONT FACE="COURIER">/usr/local/gsas/data</FONT>, ...)
    97116I assume you will put
    98 these files in <TT>/usr/local/gsas/expgui</TT> but any subdirectory,
    99 such as <TT>/usr/local/gsas/tcl</TT> will work fine.
     117these files in <FONT FACE="COURIER">/usr/local/gsas/expgui</FONT> but any subdirectory,
     118such as <FONT FACE="COURIER">/usr/local/gsas/tcl</FONT> will work fine.
    100119Change the subsequent commands if GSAS is located somewhere
    101 other than <TT>/usr/local/gsas</TT>.
    103 <PRE>
     120other than <FONT FACE="COURIER">/usr/local/gsas</FONT>.
    104123            cd    /usr/local/gsas
    105124            mkdir expgui
    106125            cd    expgui
    107126            gunzip <  [/path/]expgui.tar.gz  | tar xvf -
    108 </PRE>
    109128<P>When restoring the GSAS files from the tar file,
    110 note that <TT>[/path/]</TT> in the example above indicates the location
     129note that <FONT FACE="COURIER">[/path/]</FONT> in the example above indicates the location
    111130where you downloaded the tar file in section 2, above.
    1141332.2 Installing a shortcut to EXPGUI</H3>
    115134While it is possible to invoke EXPGUI by typing
    116 <PRE>
    117136                wish /usr/local/gsas/expgui/expgui
    118 </PRE>
    120 <PRE>
    121140                /home/toby/mywish/wish /home/toby/mygsas/expgui/expgui
    122 </PRE>
    123142or whatever, you will likely want to create an easier command to type.
    124143Below are three ways to do this. Note that only one is needed. Do not use all
    127146<em>Also, note that in the commands below,
    128 </em><TT>^D</TT><em> means control-D.</em>
     147</em><FONT FACE="COURIER">^D</FONT><em> means control-D.</em>
    133152<P>To use EXPGUI, you probably need to create an easy way to access it.
    134153One way to do this is to add an alias to your ~/.cshrc file:
    135 <PRE>
    136155                cat >> ~/.cshrc
    137156                alias expgui "wish /usr/local/gsas/expgui/expgui"
    138157                ^D
    139 </PRE>
    1411602.2b Installing EXPGUI in the path</H4>
    143162Another way to simplify access to EXPGUI
    144163is to create a file which will execute the GUI script from
    145 a command in your system's path, for example <TT>/usr/bin</TT>.
    146 <PRE>
     164a command in your system's path, for example <FONT FACE="COURIER">/usr/bin</FONT>.
    147166                cat > /usr/bin/expgui
    148167                wish /usr/local/gsas/expgui/expgui
    149168                ^D
    150169                chmod +x /usr/bin/expgui
    151 </PRE>
    152171<I>Note that this step (2.2b) is incompatible with the one below (2.2c).</I>
    157176is to create a link in your system's path to the GUI script.
    158177Note that you may need to modify the first line of
    159 <TT>/usr/local/gsas/expgui/expgui</TT>, if wish is located somewhere
    160 other than <TT>/usr/local/bin/wish</TT>.
    162 <PRE>
     178<FONT FACE="COURIER">/usr/local/gsas/expgui/expgui</FONT>, if wish is located somewhere
     179other than <FONT FACE="COURIER">/usr/local/bin/wish</FONT>.
    163182                chmod +x /usr/local/gsas/expgui/expgui
    164183                ln -s /usr/local/gsas/expgui/expgui /usr/bin/expgui

    172191directory with the GSAS executable files,
    173192for example in /usr/local/gsas/exe/.
    174 <PRE>
    175194            cd    /usr/local/gsas/exe
