Name:Linkable objects for gfetch utility in linux

Ideally researchers should obtain a copy of gfetch 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 gfetch 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 gfetch.md5.

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

This should generate an executable gfetch. Run this executable with no parameters to confirm creation - 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 gfetch see Resource 668.

If you have wget available (typically on linux systems), then you can also obtain a copy using the command

 wget  -nd
