Installing stride from source

In order to install stride on a Unix/Linux system with gcc follow these steps. Other compilers need slight modifications of the Makefile.
  1. Download the stride stand-alone program source code
  2. Create a directory wherever/stride and copy the tar ball there
  3. Unpack the tar ball: tar -zxf stride.tar.gz
  4. Compile stride: make
  5. Now you have a binary file stride in your directory, you can copy it to /usr/local/bin or add the current directory to your path to use it system-wide
