    Once you have downloaded the code you need to GNU unzip it using the following commands on a unix machine

    This will create a directory named
    where xx.yy.zz will be the version number of the download.
Download instructions using CVS on SourceForge
    This option is only suggested for those who are programming geeks (like myself) and are interested in joining in on the development of Towhee.. The CVS repository for the code is located on SourceForge and can be accessed by following the instructions at Project:MCCCS Towhee:CVS on SourceForge.
    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 offical developer in order to contribute to the project, just an added bonus for those who plan to work extensively on one or more feature enhancements.
