3.1 Quickstart: How to Compile CO5BOLD

If you are going to install CO5BOLD on a machine with a ``known'' (to setup script and Makefile) operating system and compiler (see Sections 3.5 and 3.7), then the procedure should be fairly easy. The general compilation procedure is now:
%tar -zxvf for.tar.gz
%cd for/hd/rhd/YOUR_MACHINE
tar -zxvf for.tar.gz
cd for/hd/rhd
ln -s ../conf/configure .
The compilation process is explained in more detail in Sect. 3.2. The configure script is described in its header and in Sect. 3.5. The directory structure is shown in Tab. 1. All Fortran files are listed in Tables 2 and 3.
