For the prototype's installation a C++ compiler (GNU g++ 2.3.3/2.4.5/2.5.7 or AT&T 2.0/2.1/3.01) and the X-Windows system (currently X11R4 or X11R5) for the graphical tools are required. Installation is well-tried on SUN Sparc stations and should be no problem on other UNIX machines, too. You can find a more detailed description of the supported platforms in the README.install.OBST*.

Bug reports should contain a small example program with which the bug can be reproduced, or at least a detailed description of the observed phenomenon. They should also mention: o OBST version o configuration parameters for your OBST version (from file config.status) o kind and version of C++ compiler o machine o operating system
Besides bug reports we are strongly interested in all experiences our users make with OBST (e.g. sufficiency of data model, performance, ...) and in our users' application areas and the applications as well. So, please don't hesitate to send us a short note.
Best regards and happy OBST programming.
