    5 The source code for the COIN-OR projects is maintained using the [http://subversion.tigris.org/ subversion] version control system.  If you expect to frequently get updates for the downloaded COIN-OR projects and to make local modifications, '''we recommend you obtain the source code directly from the subversion repository system''', since it allows one to obtain updates and bugfixes very easily.  '''We also provide tarballs for the "official" releases''' of each project.
     5There are two ways to get source code of a COIN-OR package: Archive files or [http://subversion.tigris.org/ subversion]. For typical users, using archive files is simplest. For users interested in having recent bug fixes available without waiting for a new release version of the code, using subversion is required.

    77The source code usually comes with the [wiki:user-directories directory structure explained here].

     12
     13Archive files for point releases of COIN packages can be downloaded from the corresponding directories in [http://www.coin-or.org/dowload/source].  Thir names have the form {{{Pgk-x.y.z.tgz}}} where {{{Pkg}}} is the name of the package. Selecting the largest version number (i.e. the most recent archive file) is usually the way to go.
     14
     15To extract the source code from the tarball on a UNIX-like system, you go into the directory in which you want the source code directory to be created.  Then you type
     16
     17{{{
     18gunzip Pkg-x.y.z.tgz
     19tar xvf Pkg-x.y.z.tar
     20}}}
     21
     22If you don't like the name of the extracted base directory, you can rename it, but do not rename any directories inside the source code tree.
     23
     24On Windows, you can use the standard decompression programs to extract the files.
