Unpack the Zmult package:
gunzip zmult-0.50.tar tar -xf zmult-0.50.tar cd zmult-0.50
Compile the Zmult library and test program:
makeTry the test program:
./accuracy > accuracy.out md5 accuracy.outThe MD5 checksum of accuracy.out should be 11d8f03bebf467736ee089a088fc4c99. You can also feed accuracy.out through bc or gp; the result should be a series of zeros.
Zmult 0.50 does not work under old versions of gcc on x86, because the code assumes that the compiler will not spill certain registers to memory. gcc 2.95.1 works; gcc 126.96.36.199 doesn't. Zmult will eventually have asm for x86 to avoid this problem.
Please report success by sending me the portability notes created by the compilation process:
( echo 'First M. Last'; cat `cat SYSDEPS`; ./speed ) \ | mail email@example.comReplace First M. Last with your name.
