For The Current Release Version

For The Latest Development Version

The latest version of the documentation is located here. The reported version may be in error as the version number only gets modified just prior to the release of the software. Also, there may be documentation of functions and features not yet available in the production version. This is the nature of beta release of the documentation. It is intended to be of most assistance to developers of ldas-tools as well as those compiling and linking against the head of the repository.


The latest development version of ldas-tools is available from the LIGO CIT git repositories. The repository can be cloned with
$ git clone ssh+git://git.ligo.caltech.edu/repos/ldas.git

using ligo.org credentials

The ldas-tools package is in the ldas-tools sub directory
