Multiple installs of Neuron?

Post by nonfcomm »

If I wanted to have more than one install of linux on my system, how would I differentiate the commands to access each install?

Asuming that you are running Linux and want to install multiple versions of NEURON--
Install from sources. For each version of NEURON that you install, put InterViews and
NEURON in unique locations--for example, iv58 and nrn58, iv57 and nrn57 etc. Instead
of using .bash_profile to add a version-specific pair of iv/i686/bin and nrn/i686/bin to your
PATH, it would probably be best to make a shell script that alters the PATH depending on
which version of NEURON you want to run.
