WikiStart / Installation

Download the .zip archive UVMAT.v... available at and unzip at the appropriate location on your computer. It should be ready for operations.

The current version number is indicated in the archive name. The latest version under development is available on the SVN server On Linux, go to a folder where you want to install uvmat and type the command line

svn checkout uvmat

Later updates can be obtained by opening a terminal in the folder uvmat and by typing the command

svn update

To use the SVN server under Windows, you can install Tortoise SVN and perform a checkout in It is also recommended to install a command line version, needed by uvmat to check the consistency of the package with the svn server.

Note that the package contains the toolboxes:

An upgrade of these toolboxes from their source web site may be needed depending on the system and Matlab version.

A set of xml schemas, updated by SVN, is also provided as templates for editing xml files within uvmat.

The package contains a template file PARAM.xml.default, updated by SVN, which specifies system parameters needed for the use of a computer cluster. After proper editing to adapt to the system configuration, it must be transformed into PARAM.xml, protected from further SVN updates.

CivX installation

Binary files compiled from the Fortran programs CivX are available in the archive at This is however optional as it is now replaced by Matlab functions within uvmat. These binaries depend on the operating system, unlike the Matlab toolboxes, so that archives are provided for different systems:

  • linux32: for linux 32 bits
  • linux64: for linux 64 bits
  • osx_x86_64: for Macintosh
  • win32: for Windows 32 bits

put the appropriate one in the sub-folder /bin of uvmat.

To recompile these programs (for advanced users), see Installation/CivxDevelloper:
