Getting started

Obtain the software

To get started using MKMCXX, you need to download the software package and unpack it on your machine. The package contains a single executable file. For windows, this file is called "mkmcxx.exe", for Unix this is simply "mkmcxx".

In addition to the software, you also need to obtain a text editor. On Unix systems, typically vim or nano is installed. For Windows, we recommend using Notepad++.

Running the program

Performing a simulation works somewhat different on Windows as compared to Unix. Please read the respective instructions below.


On Windows, you can perform simulations by placing these in seperate folders


On Unix systems, simulations are typically performed using the command line. Open a terminal and go to the root folder of the MKMCXX package. In this folder, you will see a directory named bin and a directory named example. Go to the example directory and execute the program as follows:

../bin/mkmcxx -i input.mkm
