Name: Linkable objects for ukbfetch utility

Ideally researchers should obtain a copy of ukbfetch from the Downloads section of the UKB Showcase. However if that program cannot be run due to version incompatability then this set of files allows the ukbfetch utility to be linked against local libaries on linux systems using the Gnu C++ compiler. User "tar -xvf" to unpack the following files

Before beginning run "md5sum *" on the directory and compare the values given for the files above with the contents of ukbgene.md5

Assuming the checksums match, type "make ukbfetch" at the command line.

This should generate an executable ukbgene. Run this executable with no parameters - it should output a message showing the time the code was originally compiled, the current version of GNU libc linked against, and a list of flags that the program will accept.

For detailed instructions on using ukbfetch see Resource 664.
