Similarly to installation, the administration is performed by a special user who is recognized
by write permissions to
$SIABIN directory. In other respects this
should be a normal UNIX user (not a superuser or root). The administrator may or
may not use the package for data processing.
All maintenance is performed by
Before a user can use the system, he/she should be added by the administrator, by using the following command:
$SIABIN/sia-update --adduser username
username is the UNIX user name. This command creates
$SIABIN/configure/username, in which various
settings of the processing environment can be specified.
If module descriptions or source codes for example, for tools "filter" and "agc" have been modified, these tools can be built like this:
$SIABIN/sia-update --build filter agc
Other examples for large and complex components (the main libraries, GUI, and OpenGL viewer):
$SIABIN/sia-update --build .source .gui .xviewer
To build everything, use:
$SIABIN/sia-update --build .all
Finally, a complete rebuild stating with clearing all object and binary directories is performed by:
After the tools are compiled, they can be tested for code integrity:
Some tools require custom set-up (for example, the IASP91 travel-time calculator "refmod" uses pre-built data tables). This can be done by:
$SIABIN/sia-update --setup refmod
The following will set up all modules:
$SIABIN/sia-update --setup .modules
The above commands are performed by the installer and rarely need to be used.
