Astronomical Image Processing System
31DEC01 version of AIPS is no longer available.
See 31DEC02 for the current frozen release
of AIPS. You might even consider 31DEC03
for the current development release of AIPS. It changes but there is
a midnight job that no longer requires ssh.
Since 15APR98, AIPS has used the EGCS version of the GNU compilers
with great success, mainly as it gives a considerable performance
boost over the older gcc/f2c package. We now require use of the EGCS
compilers for compiling AIPS with
g77. Version 1.1.2 has
been used in-house; we have thoroughly tested the merged 2.95
version of gcc/g77 and even the 3.0 and later versions seem fine.
We do not recommend use of the
accidentally-released "2.96" system that comes with Red Hat 7.0 (and
later). See compiler installation notes
for installing your own compiler for AIPS.. AIPS
glibc based library.
