AFGen is currently distributed in a binary format with executables for Linux.

The first step in getting and using AFGen is to download the binary distribution file. AFGen's distribution is available as either a gziped tar file or as a zip file.
Available files for download

Older versions of AFGen can be found here.

On Unix systems, after downloading AFGen you need to uncompress and untar it. This is achieved by executing the following command:
gunzip afgen-2.0.0.tar.gz

tar -xvf afgen-2.0.0.tar

On Windows systems, you need to have a zip/unzip program (e.g., winzip) in order to unzip the files. In general, you just need to double click on "" and the file will be unzipped automatically.

At this point you should have a directory named afgen-2.0.0. This directory contains AFGen's stand-alone programs, its documentation, and a sample dataset.

Instructions describing how to use AFGen can be found at afgen-2.0/doc/index.html. You can access a local copy of this documentation here.
