RNAstructure Command Line Help
Do I need to build the package?
RNAstructure is provided both as source code and as prebuilt executables. Prebuilt executables are currently available for 32-bit Linux, 64-bit Linux, Max OS-X (Leopard and higher), and 32-bit Windows. If you are using one of these operating systems, then you probably do not need to build the package. The available executables will work fine.

An optional "make install" command will copy all the executables to the /usr/local/RNAstructure/ directory. This is helpful in a shared computing environment. This command can only be executed as root.
Building on Windows
For Windows command line interfaces, you have two options for compiling RNAstructure:
