Quick Start

The first thing is to get the latest distribution of the RRT archive. The current released version of the RRT tool is stored as a compressed tar file on the SourceForge web site ( Download and copy this file to your home area or other test area and run the following commands which are based on the distribution of this documents release:

>> gzip -d rrt-1_12_0.tar.gz
>> tar -xvf rrt-1_12_0.tar
>> rrt-1_12_0/bin/rrt -r -n rrt-1_12_0/test_logs

RRT is distributed with the default of the distribution's rrt-1_12_0/public_html as the location of log file storage. The above commands will parse and display the test log files to STDOUT. In order to post the log files to the web pages one would just re-execute without the "-n" switch.

>> rrt-1_12_0/bin/rrt -r rrt-1_12_0/test_logs

Using a web browser open the file rrt-1_12_0/public_html/rrt_home.htm. One should see a single link line with the time and date the regression results were parsed. The links exist. Feel free to explore. For example:

>> firefox file://${PWD}/rrt-1_12_0/public_html/rrt_home.htm

For more options to test, please see the online help screen:

>> rrt-1_12_0/bin/rrt -help

The above steps are meant to provide one with a quick way to get RRT up and running in order to see how it works. For the formal installation instructions please see the next section.
