6. Compiling and running the program

Instructions for compilation are defined in the Makefile. Type make and all of the C files will be combined into a shared object (or DLL) called ssctester.so. Since there is no main function, this is not a program you can run by yourself, just a library of functions that will be used by ssc-tester.tcl. That file is a script, which means that it is interpreted on the fly and does not need to be compiled. To run it, type

wish ssc-tester.tcl

and a window with 16 sliders should appear. Connect the servo controller and a servo, then try moving the sliders to see if it works!
