Obtaining GridPACK Source
GridPACK source code can be obtained in two ways.
The recommended method is to download the latest release from the GridPACK release page. This is in a compressed
tar archive format file. Unpack the archive in a convenient location using something like
tar xvf gridpack-X.X.tar.gz
For further information on using
tar archives, there are many resources such as here to help.
Alternatively, the current development code can be obtained by cloning the GridPACK Github repository. The GridPACK code use some third-party code that is included as a submodule. After cloning this repository, do the following in the top-most directory of your clone to get the submodule code:
git submodule update --init
You do not need to run this command if you download one of the release tarballs.
