anitaBuildTool

A simple script to download and build the ANITA libraries.

Additional doxygen generated documentation is available online here https://anitaneutrino.github.io/anitaBuildTool

The latest documentation status is: Documentation Status

Getting anitaBuildTool

In your terminal do

git clone https://github.com/anitaNeutrino/anitaBuildTool

to create an anitaBuildTool subdirectory containing the scripts and git repository. Alternatively, you can clone over ssh with

git clone git@github.com:anitaNeutrino/anitaBuildTool

Building for the first time

In theory all one needs to do is make sure the ANITA_UTIL_INSTALL_DIR enviromental vairable is set and then type:

./buildAnita.sh

The build script is not very sophisticated it will attempt to:

1) Checkout the libraries from GitHub
2) Make a build directory and run cmake in that directory to generate Makefiles
3) Build the libraries (make)
4) Install the libraries in to ANITA_UTIL_INSTALL_DIR (make install)

This will build and install everything with the defaults. However, there are some optional arguments

./buildAnita.sh [njobs = 1] [configure = 0] [build aware = 0] [nuke build dir = 1] [convolve tuff responses = 1]
Argument Default What it does
njobs 1 The number of threads you wish to compile with. njobs > 1 will result in faster compilation, however, warnings and errors may appear out of order.
configure 0 Edit compiler flags and other options before building.
build aware 0 Whether or not to download and build AWARE in addition to the default packages.
nuke build dir 1 Whether or not the build directory will be deleted and completely re-compiled.
convolve tuff responses 1 Whether or not you want to convolve together the TUFF models with the A3 and A4 impulse responses

The main prerequisites are: ROOT https://root.cern.ch with Minuit2, MathMore, and Fortran. See https://root.cern.ch/build-prerequisites to make sure you have the prerequisites required for those features. FFTW http://www.fftw.org cmake https://cmake.org these should be available using your favourite package manager for your system.

Building for the Nth time

After buildAnita.sh is run once, more things are possible. anitaBuildTool includes a high level Makefile, which allows for separately compiling/updating/installing the software, rather than doing all of the above. The Makefile commands are documented, to see what is available do

make help

in the anitaBuildTool directory.

clone_method

Edit the top line of the clone method file (from https to ssh) to clone over ssh rather than https. This requires uploading your public ssh-key to GitHub.

If you want to update all the components, you can run:

./updateComponents.sh [Nuke build directory?] [update aware?] [update treeMaker?]

If you put a zero for [Nuke build directory?] it will possibly allow you to quicky rebuild only things that have been changed. It might not work though if there are significant modifications.
