Getting code libraries
The code in tools/ is kept under version control using Mercurial and is available to "clone" from code.googgle.com. You can easily find them there by searching for "uwcmg".
There are two main ways you could get the code:
1. On one of the linux machines like skua you would work from the command line:
2. On your mac, install the software SourceTree (free download), and then do File => New/Clone and then enter in the various boxes (for alpha on my mac as an example):
Then click "Clone"
Now you have a Working Copy that you can look at (and edit) in the usual way using the Finder or MATLAB or whatever. You can also look at it in SourceTree, which is where you find the power of working with version control. To see if a repository owner (Neil or Parker) has made changes to the remote code, open up a bookmark, and then in the left hand pane click on "default" instead of "Working Copy" and then click on Update to get the changed code.
3. Need instructions for Windows...
NOTES for my own benefit on Adminstration stuff
STEP 1 in creating a new repository:
At code.google.com click on Create a new project and then fill in:
Then click on Create Project
Then on the project page go to Administer => Source => Reset and choose the option for "hg push" and then click on Reset Repository
Then copy the URL it generates (in the hg clone line) (* keep this page open)
STEP 2 in creating a new repository:
Next, in SourceTree on your Mac do Open Project => Settings => Add and navigate to the the directory (e.g. tools/alpha) that you want to be sharing. Then paste in the URL you just got from Google Code. Keep the name as "default"
Then click on Commit, and Select All and Commit, and finally Push
NOTE: when I did this the first time I had to get an automatically generated Google Code password (the button is on the page at step *) and paste it in when SourceTree asked for it. But I didn't have to do it the next times, presumably because I had Keychain remember the password.
