Mup Version 6.3 is available ready-to-run (compiled) for Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac OS X, or Linux, or in source form for compiling yourself on any system with a C compiler. In order to use Mup, you will also need a PostScript viewer. If you don't already have one, we recommend Ghostscript, which you can download for free from http://www.ghostscript.com/ or http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost.
You can download and use Mup for free.
Download and run mup63ins.exe (2171556 byte file). This runs the Mup/Mupmate installer. It shows you the license, and if you agree, it installs Mup and Mupmate, along with the User's Guide and other documentation. If for some reason the link above doesn't work for you, you can try this alternate link to mup63ins.exe After the installation completes, reboot.
After you install, under Start > Programs you will find an Arkkra entry, and under there are Mupmate and Uninstall Mupmate. If you would like an icon for Mupmate on your desktop, you can create one by right clicking Mupmate, choosing "copy", right clicking somewhere on the desktop, and choosing "paste". You can also run Mupmate by double clicking a .mup file in Windows Explorer. With some versions of Windows, you may have to reboot your computer for all this to work.
The easiest way to use Mup is to run Mupmate. However, you can also run Mup directly, or by using Mupdisp, from an MS-DOS (command prompt) window. See our web page called "Running Mup on MS-DOS" for detailed information on this.
Most users will not be interested in Mup's source code, but if you want it, download mup63src.exe (2570027 byte file) to a folder of your choice. This is a self-extracting zip file. Click Start, and click Run to run the file, which unzips it. You can then compile Mup yourself. More detailed information on compiling Mup is available.
If you have Fedora, RHEL, CentOS, or other RHEL derivatives, you should be able to just do
yum install mup
Otherwise, you can
download mup63lin.tgz (2349422 byte file)
which includes precompiled, ready-to-run executable files and documentation
as a gzip-ed tar file.
Or if your system supports software installation via rpm, you can
download the rpm package mup-6.3-0.i586.rpm and install using
rpm -i mup-6.3-0.i586.rpmOr if you have a 64-bit system you can download the rpm package mup-6.3-0.x86_64.rpm and install using
rpm -i mup-6.3-0.x86_64.rpm
Mup itself has no special dependencies, but MupMate, the graphical front-end program, uses fltk, so the rpm declares dependencies on fltk and the X11 libraries that it depends on. If you intend to only use Mup in command line mode without ever using MupMate, you can install using --nodeps option if you don't have fltk libraries installed.
If your system using .deb packaging (e.g, Ubuntu, Debian, etc), if you have a 64-bit system, you can download the mup_6.3-1_amd64.deb package and install using
dpkg -i mup_6.3-1_amd64.debOr is you have a 32-bit system, you can download the mup_6.3_i386.deb package and install using
dpkg -i mup_6.3-1_i386.deb
If you wish to compile Mup for yourself, you can download either mup63src.tar.gz (2419251 byte file) or mup6.3-0.src.rpm (2423786 byte file). Additional information on building Mup is available.
If for some reason the links above don't work for you, you can try these alternate links:
Download ftp://ftp.arkkra.com/pub/unix/MupMate-63.dmg This is a disk image. If it doesn't automatically show up as a device in Finder, double click on it to get it mounted as a device. To install, you can just drag and drop the MupMate folder onto your Applications folder or the folder of your choice. Read the included README-MacOSX.html file for more information.
If you want to compile Mup yourself for OS X, rather than using the prebuilt image:
tar zxvf mup63src.tar.gz
cd mup-6.3/mup cc -O3 -Dunix -lm -o mup *.cNote: the '-O3' option is just for optimization, and thus can be omitted if you want, but the '-Dunix' option is very important. If you use the optimization option, be sure to use the letter capital O, not the digit zero. If you want to create universal binaries, add "-arch=i386 -arch ppc" options.
Mup should run on almost any system that has a C compiler.

The source code packages all contain the same files; they are just in different formats.

If you have bare MS-DOS (not Windows) you can download mup63dos.zip
