Installation Instructions:

Unpack the StageTools tar file to create the StageTools directory. One possible command for doing this is:
gzip -dc StageTools.tar.gz | tar vfxp -
If you want to installs StageTools publicly (for all users of Geomview), you should place the StageTools directory in the Geomview/modules/tcl directory. If you want to install it privately in your own account, you can place it anywhere you like.

Once the StageTools directory has been unpacked, cd to the StageTools directory and issue the command:

wish fix
(make sure that the TCL/TK wish interpreter is in your command path). This command will look up the location of wish and fix the executables that are part of the StageTools distribution so that they can find it. If you do not do this shell, the StageTools external modules may complain "command not found". Once this is done, you can install the StageTools external modules.

To install the StageTools modules publicly, issue the command:

(This will install a .geomview-StageTools initialization file in each subdirectory of the Geomview/modules directory. These directories are named by architecture, e.g., sgi, x11, etc., so this command will make StageTools available under each architecture you have available. If you want to restrict StageTools to a particular architecture, use the command
installTools arch
where arch is the name of the architecture (directory) where you want StageTools to be installed. You can specify as many architectures as you want.)

To install the StageTools modules only for yourself, issue the command:

installTools home
(This will append commands to your .geomview initialization file in your home directory.) Once you have installed StageTools, the modules should appear in the Geomview modules selector the next time you start Geomview.
