Download Development Sources

The most recent development sources for QccPack are available to the public via CVS. For more information on and downloading of CVS, refer to

Warning: development code is, by it’s very nature, unstable. There are likely to be bugs, and it may not even compile. Use at your own risk!

To obtain the most recent development source code, you need to check out the QccPack sources via the QccPack CVS server using the following procedure:

Login to the CVS server:
cvs -d login
  (press return if prompted for a password)
Change to parent directory of where you wish to install the sources (CVS will create a directory called “QccPack” in this directory; make sure you have write access); e.g.,
cd /usr/local
Checkout the main-distribution QccPack sources:
cvs -d checkout QccPack
Checkout the source code for any optional modules you need. For example, to get module QccPackSPIHT, do:
cd /usr/local/QccPack
cvs checkout QccPackSPIHT
Then, build your installation by copying to QccPack.config (where xxx denotes the appropriate operating system), editing QccPack.config to configure the build, and excuting the following:
cd /usr/local/QccPack
make Makefiles
make install
See the QccPack README for more detailed instructions for configuring and building QccPack.
Later, to update your copy of the sources from the archive maintained on the server (this will update the main-distribution sources as well as any optional-module sources you have installed), execute the following:
cd /usr/local/QccPack
make clean
cvs update -d
make Makefiles
make install
Note: this “anonymous” CVS access is read-only; i.e., the uploading of changes to the sources is not permitted. The current, and admittedly rudimentary, method of submitting source-code modifications is to email them to We hope to expand the set of write-endowed developers at some point in the future…
