How to get source code and documentation
FANTOM/EXDIS is a free software package for academic users, if used
for the purpose of scientific research. "Free" means we do not
charge a fee for obtaining the program, but it is still copyrighted
and we require signing a license agreement. A free demo version of
is available for commercial users. Contact Dr. Werner Braun to inquire
Follow these steps to obtain FANTOM:
- Contact Dr. Werner Braun by e-mail (
firstname.lastname@example.org ), or phone (409-747-6810), or fax (409-747-6000)
and get the 'password' for the .crypt file.
- Get Fantom.tar.gpg by clicking
- Save as Fantom.tar.gpg into your home directory.
- Unpack on your machine:
---> It will ask you for the password
tar -xvf Fantom.tar
This generates a directory "your_home_directory/FANTOM4.2" and the
/source containing the source code
/library containing the library files
/doc manual (postscript file)
P.S. Steps 1-4 above are the only legal way to obtain FANTOM. We do
not have any anonymous ftp servers here distributing the program;
do not try to get it this way. Network connections to all our
are very closely monitored and recorded.
