Informal autoconf discussion/tutorial

Posted: September 27, 2013

We will have an informal discussion about usage and caveats encountered when configuring and building packages that use the autoconf tool on Linux or a Mac. This discussion should be helpful for those who are trying to build software in their own user space. Most of the commonly used software uses autoconf (configure), such as NetCDF, HDF5, MPIs, to name a few. The plan is to go over the configure basics and then configure and build a few packages. If you have a particular package you'd like to build, let us know.

We will meet on Wednesday October 2nd at 2pm in the CHPC Training Lab, INSCC 407. If you have any questions, please, contact issues at
