What is deal.II?
deal.II is a C++ program library targeted at the computational solution of partial differential equations using adaptive finite elements. It uses state-of-the-art programming techniques to offer you a modern interface to the complex data structures and algorithms required.
For the impatient:
Let's say you've unpacked the .tar.gz file into a directory /path/to/dealii/sources. Then configure, compile, and install the deal.II library with:
$ mkdir build $ cd build $ cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/path/where/dealii/should/be/installed/to /path/to/dealii/sources $ make install (alternatively $ make -j<N> install) $ make test
To build from the repository, execute the following commands first:
$ git clone https://github.com/dealii/dealii $ cd dealii
Then continue as before.
A detailed ReadME can be found at ./doc/readme.html and ./doc/users/cmake.html or at http://www.dealii.org/.
The tutorial steps are located under examples/ of the installation. Information about the tutorial steps can be found at doc/doxygen/tutorial/index.html or at http://www.dealii.org/.
deal.II includes support for pretty-printing deal.II objects inside GDB. See
contrib/utilities/dotgdbinit.py or the new documentation page (under
'information for users') for instructions on how to set this up.
