The Fortran sources of the model are provided with a simple makefile. Matlab and the gfortran GNU compiler are required for installation. The makefile uses the definitions of Matlab directories and libraries on the machine were the model was originally compiled; before invoking make on the command line the user should review the correspondent definitions and adapt them to his local machine. After a sucessful compilation the user can place the resulting binary (traceo.exe) and the shell script runtraceo in a directory, where the system can find them. The input file has the in extension and can be written from Matlab using the M-file wtraceoinfil.m. After creating the input file (for instance, the user can run the model with the command runtraceo munk; according to the desired output the model will create one of the following Matlab mat files:
  1. rco.mat: ray coordinates;
  2. ari.mat: ray or eigenray information (ray coordinates, plus travel times and amplitudes);
  3. aad.mat: arrivals and delays information;
  4. cpr.mat: coherent acoustic pressure;
  5. ctl.mat: coherent transmission loss;
  6. pvl.mat: particle velocity;
  7. pav.mat: coherent acoustic pressure and particle velocity.
Although many of the output parameters are expected to be complex linkage issues with the Matlab engine forced a workaround of packing complex vectors as real two-dimensional matrices (first row represents the real part, second row the complex part), and separating complex matrices into a real and a complex part. Users are welcome to fix this issue. Besides the Matlab mat files TRACEO writes a short munk.log ASCII file, describing the type of array and the calculation time. The structure of the input file will be described in the following section.
