Operating System: Linux
Interface Version: CmdStan
Compiler/Toolkit: gcc/Ubuntu or RHEL
I notice “make install” has no effect in CmdStan. If you are willing to do it, or let me get somebody to do it, we’d be only a small step to having RPM and DEB packages of CmdStan. I did that packaging for OpenBUGS for several years, i can do for you too. The only part that we need, I think, is a “make install” functionality in your CmdStan makefile. Has this been discussed?
I just compiled this in Ubuntu 17.10 and it appeared smooth. If we packaged this up for easy installation, then a person could run your bugs_examples without a battle. As it is, I have students who have access to Rstan, but no CmdStan (because it is not packaged for Linux OS). It would be nice if I could put a package into the automatic update stream. I will do it if one of you will add the install magic to your makefile.
I’m not a Stan enthusiast, but I’m pretty good at Unix/Linux stuff and I could make this go forward.
