To get started with MSG, follow these simple steps:
Install the MESA Software Development Kit.
Download the MSG source code.
Unpack the source code using the tar utility.
MSG_DIRenvironment variable to point to the newly created source directory.
Compile MSG using the command make -C $MSG_DIR.
Test MSG using the command make -C $MSG_DIR test.
pymsgPython module using the command pip install $MSG_DIR/python.
(the last step can be skipped if you don’t plan to use the Python interface).
For a more in-depth installation guide that covers alternative use-cases, refer to the Installation chapter. If the code doesn’t compile properly, consult the Troubleshooting chapter. Otherwise, proceed to the next chapter where you’ll undertake your first MSG calculations.
