Then follow the instructions.
All downloads and resourcesBelow are the downloads and resources available from this page
1. Install Java, if necessary
All versions of Ptolemy II 4.0.1 require Java 1.4 or later.
Java 1.4.2_04 is preferred.
To run Ptolemy II, the Java runtime environment (JRE) is sufficient.
To run the applets in a browser, the Java plug-in is required. The JRE is bundled with the plug-in, so downloading the plug-in is sufficient.
To recompile Ptolemy II from source or extend Ptolemy II with your own Java code, the Java development kit (JDK) or an equivalent Java development environment is required. The JDK includes a Java compiler.
One way to determine what version of Java (if any) is installed is to run our Java Version Applet , which uses the Java 1.4 plug-in.
Another way is to run the command below to see whether you have Java installed, and whether it is the proper version:
java -versionIf the command cannot be found, or the version that is printed is less than 1.4, you should install the plug-in, JRE 1.4, or JDK 1.4
You can determine if the
javac compiler is in your path
java -helpIf the command is not found, and you want to rebuild from sources, then you would need to install the JDK.
2. Install Cygwin, if necessary
Ptolemy II uses the standard tar/configure/make method. To run configure and make, you must have Unix tools installed on your machine. Under Windows, these tools are available as part of the Cygwin toolkit
