    11= Installing GSAS & EXPGUI on Mac OS X =
    22
    3 There are two ways provided here to install GSAS & EXPGUI. The first is preferred since is downloads directly from a subversion repository. In this method the distribution .dmg file does not need to change when the program is updated. Instead, the latest version of the programs are downloaded from a server when the program is installed (an internet connection is obviously required). Subsequently, if there are updates to GSAS or EXPGUI, an update can be made where only the modified or added files are ugraded. This update step can be done using the File/Update... menu option in EXPGUI or by executing the bootstrap.py file in the GSAS directory. However, these methods require ~double the space needed by GSAS & EXPGUI. For users who need to install GSAS & EXPGUI on systems where an internet connection to the server is not possible or where space usage, an alternate .dmg file is also provided containing all GSAS & EXPGUI files, but this requires that upgrades be performed by downloading and installing the all GSAS & EXPGUI files from a future .dmg distribution.

    55== How to install self-updating GSAS & EXPGUI ==
     
    1717 * Drag the gsas folder to where you want it on your computer. I recommend you place this in an area where you have write access without running as admin (you don't login as an admin, routinely -- right?!). If you place this folder in /Applications or any other central location, use an admin account for the next step, as well as to run EXPGUI to perform upgrades.
    1818
    19  * Click on the gsas folder in the location where you have copied it. You should see three files: bootstrap.py (the installation script); expgui (an applescript for running EXPGUI, OS X 10.5 & 10.6); expgui10.4 (an applescript for running EXPGUI, OS X 10.4)
     19 * Click on the gsas folder in the location where you have copied it. You should see three files: bootstrap.py (the installation script); expgui (an !AppleScript for running EXPGUI, OS X 10.5 & 10.6); expgui10.4 (an applescript for running EXPGUI, OS X 10.4)
    2020
    2121 * click on bootstrap.py. This should launch python, which will open a terminal window and will start downloading the files needed by GSAS & EXPGUI from the network. If python is installed, but is not connected to the .py extension, it is possible to open a terminal window, use 'cd' to change to the appropriate directory and then type {{{python bootstrap.py}}} Note that this script can safely be rerun if a problem occurs in the download. In fact, whenever it is run, it will check the files on your computer against those on the repository and will download any updates.

    24  * recommended: drag the expgui (expgui.app) AppleScript to the dock. If using 10.4 on a Intel machine, you will likely have better luck with the expgui10.4 script -- this is the default on the PPC dist. Rename this to expgui. On the PPC distribution, this is the default version. These scripts were updated on April 15, 2010. If you have older versions, you are recommended to replace them with versions from the above file.

    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.
