Computation Simulation of Multi-Body Interactions Binary Releases

You can install Multipole from source. However, if don't have a proper development environment or if you're anxious to get started, download a ready-to-run Unix or Windows executable. Before you download, you may want to review recent changes to the Multipole distribution.

Unix Binary Release

These are the Unix variations that we support. If your system is not on the list, try installing from source.

Version HTTP FTP Description
Multipole-1.0.7-3.i386.rpm download download CentOS 5.5 i386 RPM
Multipole-1.0.7-3.x86_64.rpm download download CentOS 5.5 x86_64 RPM
Multipole-sparc-sun-solaris2.10.tar.gz download download Solaris Sparc 2.10
Multipole-i386-unknown-freebsd6.2.tar.gz download download FreeBSD 6.2
Multipole-i686-pc-cygwin.tar.gz download download Cygwin
Multipole-i686-pc-mingw32.tar.gz download download MinGW

Verify its message digest.

Multipole RPM's are self-installing. Simply type the following command and you're ready to start using Multipole:

$magick> rpm -Uvh Multipole-1.0.7-3.i386.rpm

For other systems, create (or choose) a directory to install the package into and change to that directory, for example:

$magick> cd $HOME

Next, extract the contents of the package. For example:

$magick> tar xvfz Multipole.tar.gz

Set the WIZARD_HOME environment variable to the path where you extracted the Multipole files. For example:

$magick> export WIZARD_HOME="$HOME/Multipole-1.0.7"

If the bin subdirectory of the extracted package is not already in your executable search path, add it to your PATH environment variable. For example:

$magick> export PATH="$WIZARD_HOME/bin:$PATH"

On Linux and Solaris machines add $WIZARD_HOME/lib to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable:

$magick> LD_LIBRARY_PATH="${LD_LIBRARY_PATH:+$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:}$WIZARD_HOME/lib" $magick> export LD_LIBRARY_PATH

Finally, to verify Multipole is working properly, type the following on the command line:

$magick> validate passphrase

Congratulations, you have a working Multipole distribution under Unix or Linux and you are ready to use Multipole to encipher, decipher, or compute a message digest for your content or perhaps you'll want to use one of the Application Program Interfaces for C, C++, Perl, and others.

Mac OS X Binary Release

We provide a Mac OS X binary distribution, however, if you already have MacPorts installed on your system, simply type:

$magick> sudo port install Multipole

The port command downloads Multipole and many of its delegate libraries (e.g. JPEG, PNG, Freetype, etc.) and configures, builds, and installs Multipole automagically. Alternatively, download the Multipole Mac OS X distribution we provide:

Version HTTP FTP Description
Multipole-universal-apple-darwin9.7.0.tar.gz download download Mac OS X Leopard 10.5

Verify its message digest.

Create (or choose) a directory to install the package into and change to that directory, for example:

$magick> cd $HOME

Next, extract the contents of the package. For example:

$magick> tar xvfz Multipole-universal-apple-darwin9.7.0.tar.gz

Set the WIZARD_HOME environment variable to the path where you extracted the Multipole files. For example:

$magick> export WIZARD_HOME="$HOME/Multipole-1.0.7"

If the bin subdirectory of the extracted package is not already in your executable search path, add it to your PATH environment variable. For example:

$magick> export PATH="$WIZARD_HOME/bin:$PATH"

Set the DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable:

$magick> export DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH="$WIZARD_HOME/lib"

Finally, to verify Multipole is working properly, type the following on the command line:

$magick> validate passphrase

Congratulations, you have a working Multipole distribution under Mac OS X and you are ready to use Multipole to encipher, decipher, or compute a message digest for your content or perhaps you'll want to use one of the Application Program Interfaces for C, C++, Perl, and others.

Windows Binary Release

Multipole runs on all recent Windows releases except Windows 95 / 98. We recommend its use on an NT-based version of Windows (NT4, 2000, 2003, XP, or Vista).

The Windows version of Multipole is self-installing. Simply click on the appropriate version below and it will launch itself and ask you a few installation questions. Versions with dll in the filename include Multipole libraries as dynamic link libraries. If you are not sure which version is appropriate, choose Multipole-1.0.7-3-windows-dll.exe.

Version HTTP FTP Description
Multipole-1.0.7-3-windows-dll.exe download download Win32 dynamic
Multipole-1.0.7-3-windows-static.exe download download Win32 static
Multipole-1.0.7-3-windows-x64-static.exe download download x64 static

Verify its message digest.

To verify Multipole is working properly, type the following in an MS-DOS Command Prompt window:

$magick> validate passphrase

A series of regression tests are performed to ensure the Multipole is installed and running properly.

If you have any problems, install the Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86) or Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x64).

Congratulations, you have a working Multipole distribution under Windows and you are ready to use Multipole to encipher, decipher, or compute a message digest for your content or perhaps you'll want to use one of the Application Program Interfaces for C, C++, Perl, and others.
