10This is the Version 3.02 of the ALICE simulation and reconstruction
11software. It is intended to offer a general purpose framework for ALICE
12simulation and reconstruction. The program should not be considered
13complete, and we are relying on the feed-back from users to correct bugs
14and provide improvements.
15
16The simulation program is based on GEANT3.21. A special version of the
17GEANT library and a mini-CERN Library are included in the distribution.

19Up-to-date information on installation and use of this code can be found at
20http://www.cern.ch/alice/Projects/offline. This README is a very condensed
21summary of the information contained there.

24Installation
25------------
26
27- Install ROOT and define the ROOTSYS symbol correctly.
28
29- Decide in which directory you will install the ALICE sofware. We will
30indicate it with <directory>
31
32- Define the following global variables in the login script
33
34ALICE = <directory>
35ALICE_LEVEL = pro
36ALICE_ROOT = $ALICE/$ALICE_LEVEL
37ALICE_TARGET = `uname`
38LD_LIBRARY_PATH = $ALICE_ROOT/lib/tgt_${ALICE_TARGET}\:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH (on all systems)
39SHLIB_PATH = $ALICE_ROOT/lib/tgt_${ALICE_TARGET}\:$SHLIB_PATH (on hpux)
40PATH = $PATH\:$ALICE_ROOT/bin/tgt_${ALICE_TARGET}
41
42At this point you should logout, login again and check that the symbols are
43set correctly
