In order to be installed on a system, AFF3CT can either be compiled locally and installed (see From Source), or remotely precompiled versions can be downloaded and installed (see Precompiled Versions.)
2.3.1. From Source¶
Once AFF3CT has been compiled, it is possible (not mandatory) to install it on
your system. On Unix-like systems, traditionally, the fresh build is installed
/usr/local directory (this is the CMake default installation path).
This location can be changed by setting the
variable with an other path. For instance, to install AFF3CT in the current
cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX="install"
This command do not install AFF3CT. It only prepares the project to be installed in the selected location.
188.8.131.52. Makefile Project¶
To install AFF3CT, call the install target on the current Makefile:
Depending on the chosen
CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX location, the
administrator privileges (sudo) can be required.
184.108.40.206. Visual Studio Solution¶
In case of a Visual Studio Solution, an INSTALL project is defined and ensures
the installation when triggered. This can be done from the Visual Studio IDE
or from the command line after calling the
%VS_PATH%\VC\Auxiliary\Build\vcvars64.bat batch script (where
is the location of Visual Studio on your system):
devenv /build Release aff3ct.sln /project INSTALL
2.3.2. Precompiled Versions¶
220.127.116.11. From AFF3CT website¶
If you do not plan to modify the AFF3CT source code and you want to use the simulator/library as is, you can download one of the latest builds from the download page of the AFF3CT website. Precompiled binaries are available for the most common operating systems : Windows, macOS and Linux.
18.104.22.168. On Debian / Ubuntu¶
Each new version of AFF3CT is deployed on PPA repositories for the aptitude
package manager. Two different repositories are available. The first one,
stable, holds versions that are released after a lot of testing to ensure
performance and stability. The second one,
dev, holds the latest development
versions of AFF3CT.
Select the channel to use (
dev, not both!):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:aff3ct/aff3ct-stable
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:aff3ct/aff3ct-dev

refs/many results from AFF3CT simulations.
