The easiest way to get a snapshot of the Antelope-contrib source code is to go to the Antelope-contrib git page and hit the Download Source button near the upper right-hand-corner of the page. Save the resulting file, which should be named something like


onto your computer (the hex signature at the end of the name will most likely be different, and the filename extensions may be different depending on which download format you chose).

After downloading, uncompress and unpack the file with standard Unix utilities. This should produce a directory named something like


and containing the files and directories comprising the Antelope contributed-code repository. Although these can reside anywhere on your system, the standard approach is to make a directory called


and move the downloaded and unpacked directory of contributed code to the location and name


Once you have downloaded the whole contributed-code repository, assuming your Antelope environment is properly set up you could in theory compile the entire distribution with commands such as

cd $ANTELOPE/src/contrib
make Include
make install

This may not be advisable, however, since most of the contributed-code repository is compiled and shipped by default with Antelope, and you may not want to rewrite over working executables and files. If you are interested in one particular utility, often it is sufficient to navigate to the directory for that utility and compile it, for example

cd $ANTELOPE/src/contrib/bin/rt/liss2orb
make Include
make install

Exact details on the requirements of each contributed program may vary. For details, you may need to consult the documentation for the program.
