Dinotrace is no longer under development. It is however solid and reliable, and portability or other issues are fixed when requested.
Dinotrace is a C program that must be built before being used. It builds on Solaris, HP/UX, Linux, and Windows NT. It should be relatively easy to compile on other systems if GCC is used.
It also requires:
- Motif Widgets or the public-domain version openmotif that is part of most Linux distributions, or the older LessTIF.
- An X11 server.
On Windows the Cygwin environment is required.
Further instructions are described in distribution under the INSTALL file.
See INSTALL with the distribution for detailed information.
In general, Dinotrace installs like any other GNU application.
tar xvf dinotrace*.tg*z cd dinotrace* ./configure make # Test ./dinotrace traces/ascii.tra make install
See the manual after installation for how to get started.
