    55== How to install self-updating GSAS & EXPGUI ==

    7 The software installation is done using a program called subversion (svn) which is called from a installation script that is run using the Python interpreter. I believe that python can be found on OS X in the default installation from 10.4 on. Subversion comes preloaded on Leopard (10.5) and Snow Leopard systems (10.6). '''Users of 10.4 will need to install subversion''', [#10dot4 see the note below].

    99Here is the procedure needed to load GSAS & EXPGUI:
     
    2626EXPGUI is started by clicking on the expgui icon, or by dragging .EXP files or directories onto the expgui icon. On occasion, nothing happens when I click on the icon. Closing or restarting X11 seems to fix this problem.

    3030In EXPGUI, one can press the "Upgrade GSAS/EXPGUI" menu button in the File menu. The response to this will be a window that says if there are updates to download or that the programs are "up-to-date". If there are updates, you have the option of installing them and restarting EXPGUI.
     
    3434Note that if you make any modifications to any files distributed as part of GSAS or EXPGUI, these files may not be upgraded, should the changes be in the same regions as upgrades made by Bob or myself. If you are in the practice of modifying the programs, you should learn to use svn and do your upgrades by hand.

    3738Users of 10.4 will need to install subversion. This can be done with [http://www.finkproject.org/ Fink] or [http://www.macports.org/ MacPorts]. Note that all that is needed is the svn client, should you have a choice in package size. Note this needs to be installed in a place where Python and EXPGUI can find it.
    3839If you have svn and python can't find it for bootstrap.py, edit that file or modify your path. If EXPGUI can find it, set EXPGUI(pathlist) to hold the path to svn (see customization).
