# Pure Data

This is the README file for Pd, a free real-time computer music system.

## Getting Pd

You can get Pd for Linux, macOS, or Microsoft Windows from:

or from the Pure Data community site:

Installation instructions are in INSTALL.txt and the HTML documentation at:

If you download and unpack Pd, you will also find the HTML documentation
locally in the file "doc/1.manual/index.htm".

Linux (or FreeBSD): In some Linux installations you can download Pd via "apt-get
install puredata" or "dnf install puredata"; otherwise you can download
the source and compile it as described in INSTALL.txt.

Apple macOS: Pd binaries are distributed as a "tar.gz" file. The web browser
will probably download this archive into your Downloads folder. Double click
to extract the archived Mac app which you can then run and/or drag into your
Applications folder.

Microsoft Windows: Pd binaries are distributed as a self-extracting executable
or as a "zip" file.

If you have questions about Pd or if you wish to be notified of releases,
you can browse and/or join the Pd mailing list:

Many extensions to Pd are available, for instance to add video and 3D graphics.
The easiest way to get these is to use the "Find externals" command in Pd's Help
