Compiling IQmol is not for the faint-hearted and should not be attempted by novice developers. An outline of what has worked for me can be found in the build_* files in the doc directory of the git repository, your mileage may vary.

Obtaining the Source Code

The latest version of the source code is now available on GitHub. You will need git installed on your machine before you can clone the repository using the following command:

#> git clone

Please note that the repository is read-only, so you will not be able to push any changes you have made to the code. Please contact me if you wish to contribute code to the repository.

If you do not have git installed you can still obtain the source as a zip bundle by clicking the ZIP download button on the GitHub page.

External Libraries

IQmol relies on several additional libraries and these must be available before compiling. Consulte the build_* files for an up-to-date list of what is required.
