the source tar.gz file to your system if you have not already done so (~6k)
Step 2:To undo the gzip'd tar file simply perform the following steps:
Step 3: Build the code
cd .. (yes that's up one level from $SIMPL_HOME)
<place the simplics.tar.gz here>
tar -zxvf simplics.tar.gz
This will create an $SIMPL_HOME/softwareICs tree and place all of the
source for the ICs in there.

You can build the entire IC tree by simply:
Step 4: Run the IC.
This will create executables and move them to $SIMPL_HOME/softwareICs/bin.
Follow the instructions contained in the softwareICs/<whatever>/test/readme
Step 5: Have fun with the stuff.
While these code snips are meant to be illustrative, they can form the basis

The code is organized such that all the individual directories
come with their own Makefile. You can execute localized builds by typing:
make clobber - will remove all .o's and binaries in preparation for a complete
Each of the ICs directories are organized in the same simple manner
make - will perform a build and leave the executable in the local ../bin
make install - will do everything that "make" does but also copy the executable
src - contains all the .c, the Makefile and the readme instructions
include - contains all the .h
test - contains all the unit test code (simulators and/or stimulators)
As with most things it represents a "work in progress". Contributions are
