31DEC01 Version

[AIPS]

The 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.

AIPS and GNU G77 under Linux

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 assumes the glibc based library.
