Installing and Testing PLOTTAB on MAC-OSX

  1. Download and save MAC-OSX to a folder on your hard drive. The compressed file contains a subfolder MAC-OSX. Decompress the files in this subfolder into your destination folder for PLOTTAB executable.
  2. Open a command window and make your PLOTTAB executable folder the default directory.
  3. Execute "plottab" from the command window - this will run the included test problem to produce on-screen graphics.
  4. Execute "plotsave" – this will run the included test problem to produce hardcopy Postscript files.

The results should be the same as those shown in the documentation. If these disagree PLEASE notify the author or one of the Technical Contacts. Today there are big differences between various versions of MAC-OSX, so the included executables may not run on your computer. If they don't you will have to create your own xecutables starting from the source code included in the "Source code" link.
