# 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: http://msp.ucsd.edu/software.html or from the Pure Data community site: https://puredata.info Installation instructions are in INSTALL.txt and the HTML documentation at: http://msp.ucsd.edu/Pd_documentation/index.htm 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: https://lists.puredata.info/listinfo 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 menu. ## Copyright Except as otherwise noted, all files in the Pd distribution are Copyright (c) 1997-2017 Miller Puckette and others.
