Installing a module

SimSpec offers multiple and flexible module installation procedures. You may follow any of the methods to install a module. Here I show the example for IMCACS

You can directly install by a module name(s) as listed above. SimSpec will download the latest version of the module from this website and install it.

$ simspec -installmodule IMACS

Or by downloading a module package file(s) .ssmod from above link to your computer, and install from the package file(s).

$ simspec -installmodule 'path/to/local/file/IMACS-v2.2.ssmod'

Or you can directly use a module file URL(s) from this website like this

$ simspec -installmodule 'https://astro.subhashbose.com/simspec/modules/IMACS-v2.2.ssmod'

TIP : All above methods support mutiple module installation from a single command like this

$ simspec -installmodule IMACS DUPONT LDSS3  .....
