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

The package also contain a 'fixed' archive containing 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.

Finally the archive contains binary files compiled from the Fortran programs CivX. This is not mandatory 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. To recompile these programs, see Installation/CivxDevelloper.
