5You can obtain the source code for the CoinMP package in two ways:
6
71. Obtain the source directly from the COIN-OR subversion repository
8   (recommended).  For this you needs the program 'svn' installed on
9   your machine, and output of "svn --version" must contain
10   "handles 'https' scheme".
11
12   Assuming that you want to download the code into a subdirectory
13   "COIN-CoinMP", you type
14
15   svn co https://projects.coin-or.org/svn/CoinMP/stable/1.0 Coin-CoinMP
16
172. Download the tarball from http://www.coin-or.org/Tarballs/CoinMP and
18   extract it, for example, with
19
20   gunzip CoinMP_2006Jun07.tgz
21   tar xvf CoinMP_2006Jun07.tar
22
23   (Here "2006Jun07" is of course replaced by the string in the
24   tarball you downloaded.)

57Go into the directory that you just downloaded or extracted (e.g.,
58Coin-CoinMP or CoinMP_2006Jun07).  Then you type
59
60   ./configure
61
62Note that you might have to specify additional options, in case you
63don't want to use the default choices that configure makes (e.g.,
64compilers).  Please visit

68and the CoinMP Trac page

74If everything went fine, you will see at the end of the output

80**********************************************************************
81
82In the directory where you ran the configure script:
83
841. Compile the code by typing
85
86   make
87
882. To test if the code works, you can type
89
90   make test
91
923. To install the code, you type
93
94   make install
95
96   After this, you will find the executables, libraries and header
97   files in the "bin", "lib" and "include" subdirectory, respectively.
98
99More information on the compilation and installation can be found at

107Now you can link your own code with the installed libraries.  You can
108find examples in the
109
