Name: Linkable objects for ukbgene utility

Ideally researchers should obtain a copy of ukbgene 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 ukbgene utility to be linked against local libaries on linux systems using the Gnu C++ compiler. Use "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 ukbgene" 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 ukbgene see Resource 664.
