    13131. Download the code, data, and documentation. This creates several directories,  Each contains a readme.htm file describing the contents of that directory.

    19    5. You must compile some stellar data files if you want to use the some of the table star command to include realistic stellar continua.
    20    6. Download and run the test suite to confirm that all is well.  This is a critical step since it will check for bugs in your compiler.  That directory also contains a group of programs that show how to call the code as a subroutine.
    21    7. Hot Fixes  A set of corrections to the source, which will be incorporated in the next incremental upgrade, are listed in the Hot Fixes page. It is very important that you edit the source to incorporate these hot fixes since they correct known problems. The source you obtain here does not have any of these these fixes included. (Reason: this is the source that created the output files that are downloaded with the test suite.  You can validate your system/compiler by confirming that this source reproduces that output.  This source and output constitute a reference for where the code was at a particular time.)

    2631While doing all that downloading/compiling/testing you might be interested in hearing Cloudy's favorite song in mp3 format (from Simon & Garfunkel's Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme).
