The GIL distributions
The binary distribution
The GIL binary distribution is a set of compiled shared libraries (one per GIL component), tcl scripts, and demo applications. Shared libraries are compiled for Mac OS X (10.4, universal ppc and intel), Linux (Ubuntu 8.04 x86), and MS Windows (XP). The file hierarchy of the binary distribution is as follow:
Some components require the availability, on the executing machine, of some external dependencies not provided in the distribution.
The source distribution
The source distribution provides the source code and build files necessary to compile GIL.
The following table lists the dependencies (external software) that are not provided in the GIL distributions and are required by some GIL components.
