How to Compile SLIDE

This page provides a "how to" guide for compiling SLIDE from a source distribution. SLIDE has been ported to a wide variety of platforms, and compilation has been made easier through GNU autoconf on UNIX.

Before You Start

Before trying to compile SLIDE you should do the following things:

Pre-compile steps

Before compiling SLIDE, install the following libraries.
