How to install ?
Extract the tarball to some directory of your choice. Change into the directory and run:
python setup.py build python setup.py install –prefix=/some/where
If you wish to pull down the github version you can use pip:
pip install git+https://github.com/ajmendez/PyMix.git
It is now part of pypi:
pip install pymix
After the installation is completed I would recommend to run mixtureunittests.py to check whether everything is in order.
To get the GSL on OSX I recomend using homebrew to build the universal package so that it works with both the i386 version in EPD:
brew install gsl –universal
Example code for most aspects of the library can be found in the pymix/examples subdirectory and mixtureunittest.py. Automatically generated documentation for the module is available on the Pymix home page www.pymix.org.
