How to compile and run the code

The code consists of several different FORTRAN programs:

A Makefile is provided to allow easy compilation of all of the programs. You should edit the Makefile and put in your preferred compilation flags for:

The general scheme for running the code and analyzing results is as follows:

1.
Set initial conditions using PMmodels and PMstartCDM.
2.
Run the PM code using PMmain.

3.
Analyze the results using PMpower, and PMhalos. PM_to_ASCII will scale your results to ``normal'' units.

More details on each step are provided in subsequent sections.

Some important parameters and variables which are used in the codes, for which you will either be prompted or may wish to change before compilation. Please note the last item which may require you to make a change in the code!
