Files and folders structure
When you build IMP, the
lib directory contains Python modules (both pure
Python, in the
IMP subdirectory, and C++ extensions, as
in the top-level directory) and the IMP C++ libraries (as
in the top-level directory). Rationale: Windows searches for C++ dynamic
libraries in the same directory as C++ Python extensions.
include directory contains all public header files under the
subdirectory. Modules are in named subdirectories under that.
swig directory contains all SWIG interface (
.i) files used to build
the Python interface.
