On Unix system, the location of the GILDAS software environment is normally defined by executing a simple starting script, like this one, typically in the .bash_profile of the user.
export GAG_ROOT_DIR=/home/Guilloteau/gildas/gildas-exe-dev export GAG_EXEC_SYSTEM=pc-cygwin-gfortran source $GAG_ROOT_DIR/etc/bash_profile
The development environment can be accessed by typing
source $GAG_ROOT_DIR$/admin/gildas-env.shwhich selects the default compilers to build the system. The development environment architecture uses Makefiles, and the best to develop a new program is just to clone some architecture (see contrib/example for a full working example To be Done).
