Obtaining and Installing the Tool

Download the ASF SAR Training Processor. Before downloading, you'll be asked on which operating system you intend to run STP. Windows packages come with an installer, Linux packages come as an RPM, and Source packages contain source code with an autoconf-style configure script.

Windows Installation

The Windows package contains just a single file, the installer.

To install, you just need to open up the archive file that you downloaded (double-clicking on it will open it), and then run the installer program contained within.

After installation, you will have a start-menu shortcut that you can use to run the SAR Training Processor.

Source Installation

After you've downloaded and extracted the archive, you need to compile the tools before they can be installed. To do this, make sure you're in the asf_tools directory, then:

./configure --prefix=[[installation location]] make make install

You will need permissions to put files into [[installation location]]! The default is /usr/local.

For example, to install the tools in "asf_tools" folder of your home directory:

./configure --prefix=~/asf_tools make make install
