3.3 Compiling and maintaining VASP/VAMP

There are two directories in which VAMP/VASP resides. "vasp.lib" holds files which change rarely, but might require considerable changes for supporting new machines. "vasp.X.X" contains the real code, and changes with each update. We recommend to rename the "vasp.X.X" directory to simply "vasp". This makes the updating easier.

There are also several utility and maintenance program's in the vasp.X.X directory for instance the

> makeparam
utility. This files are not automatically create and must be compiled by hand, for instance typing
> make makeparam
in the vasp.X.X directory.
