I am a new grid lab user and Im having trouble installing on Mac OSX 10.8.2. After downloading, I open the installer and let it run, but then I cant find gridlab on the computer. I have gridlab running fine on my personal windows machine, but I am having trouble with this Mac. Also what sort of text editor and compiler should I run? Are there any installation instructions for mac users?
If you are installed V2.3, the default install folder is /usr/lib/gridlabd. The default command line is "/usr/bin/gridlabd". Any text editor will do. I'm on old "vi" guy, but most folks would not recommend using that.
I was trying to verify that the install went correctly, but when I type "gridlabd -version" in the terminal I get the following message:
WARNING : /usr/lib/gridlabd/tzinfo.txt(36): timezone spec 'WILDABBR0WILDABBR' not found in 'tzinfo.txt', will include no DST information
GridLAB-D 18.104.22.16847 Grizzly
What does this mean and do I need to fix it somehow?
This is typical of Mac installations where the locale is unknown. You can give GridLAB-D a hint about your timezone by added the following to your shell startup script (e.g., .profile):
or whatever your timezone is.
