Download instructions using CVS on SourceForge
- Once you have downloaded the code you need to GNU unzip it using the following

This will create a directory named

- gunzip towhee_current.tar.gz
- tar -xf towhee_current.tar
This option is only suggested for those who are programming geeks (like myself) and are interested in

- Those interested in becoming a developer of the code and gaining CVS access on SourceForge should
contact Marcus G. Martin. It is not necessary to be an
