    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 upgraded. 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.
