Currently, the most useful (and working!) part of Sally is the line drawing program, ShowLine. This page contains instructions on how to compile and run ShowLine.
In order to compile ShowLine, you will need a 1.3 compliant java compiler. Throughout this document, it is assumed that you are using Sun's java compiler, jdk, available for free from http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.3/.
If you wish to make any changes to the place notation parsing code (MethodParser.jj), then you will also need JavaCC, the Java Compiler Compiler. This is available for free from WebGain at http://www.webgain.com/products/java_cc/.
The ShowLine program can be compiled under a UNIX-like environment by issuing the following command from within the Sally directory:
You may need GNU ‘make’ for this to work. If make is not available, you can use the following commands:
mkdir -p classes
javacc -output_directory:bellringer/ShowLine bellringer/ShowLine/MethodParser.jj
javac -d classes bellringer/ShowLine/ShowLine.java
ShowLine can be run by issuing the following command from within the Sally directory:
If make is not available, the following command can be used instead:
java -cp classes bellringer.ShowLine.ShowLine
The following command-line options can be given to the make command:
