Compiling Xbatch

Once the Makefile has been modified, you are now ready to compile xbatch for your machine.

From within the xbatch-dir directory, type ``make xbatch''. This will compile the xbatch file for the machine that you are currently on. The binary file which results from this compilation is called xbatch.

Copy the binary file xbatch into the binary directory for this machine. In an earlier section, you were instructed to create binary directories under xpos/bins and nq/bins. This file should be copied into the binary directory for this machine under xpos/bins. For example, if you were in a Sun 4 using Lucid 3.0 the directory would be sun4_3.0.
