-AlphaZ has been only tested on Linux 64 bits and MacOs.+AlphaZ has been only tested on 64 bit Linux and MacOS. There are several options that can be used to get a working eclipse instance with AlphaZ installed.
  
-=====Eclipse Setup Using Plugins=====+===== Option 1 - Eclipse Setup on CS Department Machines ===== 
 +You must be a CSU student with access to the CS deparment machines to do this. An eclipse environment with all necessary plug-ins is available in the AlphaZ project directory. Run the following in a bash terminal to add the AlphaZ project directory to your path: 
 +<code bash> 
 +echo 'export PATH=/s/chopin/h/proj/AlphaZ/bin:$PATH' >> ~/.bashrc 
 +source ~/.bashrc 
 +</code>
  
-For the newcomers (for others some of these steps are redundant): +Then launch Eclipse with the following command:
-  - AlphaZ requires at least Java 7 (Java 8 is also supported). If Java 7 is not installed on your machine, install Java 7 from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index-jsp-138363.html.  +
-  - Download Eclipse (Neon - 4.6.1) at http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/ (Eclipse Classic for your platform) +
-  - Launch Eclipse +
-  - Go to Help -> Install New Software +
-  - In "Work with" form, copy/paste the following URLhttps://www.cs.colostate.edu/AlphaZ/update-sites/neon/site.xml (Neon - 4.6.1 is the current version of Eclipse. For older versions of Eclipse use URL: https://www.cs.colostate.edu/AlphaZ/update-sites/<target>/site.xml where <target> is code name of the Eclipse distribution). +
-  - You should see several items including "AlphaZ environment"+
-  - Install "AlphaZ Bundle" (inside the "AlphaZ environment" category). +
-  - Hit next until Eclipse start installing the bundle. +
-  - Restart Eclipse. +
-  - To be able to check out project through svn with eclipse, please install the corresponding subeclipse plugins using update-site  https://dl.bintray.com/subclipse/releases/subclipse/4.2.x. /*All links that correspond to different versions of subeclipse is available on webpage http://subclipse.tigris.org/servlets/ProjectProcess?pageID=p4wYuA. Go to Help->Install New Software, and copy the corresponding URL in the "Work with" form, and install all the plugins. */ +
- +
-Since AlphaZ is still in very active development, we have activated automatic update of AlphaZ bundle.If you met some problems while using AlphaZ, please refer to the common pitfall section. We described some common problems that users met, and provided possible solutions.\\ +
-=====Eclipse Setup for External Environment ===== +
- +
-Bundles for other environments are available under ''http://www.cs.colostate.edu/AlphaZ/bundles/''. \\ +
-Simply download the archive for your OS/architecture and extract its content.\\ +
-AlphaZ bundle will be also automatically updated. +
- +
- +
-=====Eclipse Setup for CSU students ===== +
-The eclipse environment with all necessary plug-ins is available in the AlphaZ project directory. The following script will start the eclipse with AlphaZ installed.\\+
 <code bash> <code bash>
-#!/bin/bash+eclipse.alphaz 
 +</code>
  
-#Path to the eclipse -- should NOT be changed +===== Option 2 Eclipse Setup using Local Install ===== 
-export ECLIPSE_HOME=/s/chopin/e/proj/AlphaZ/BinTree/eclipse-alphaz-bundle/eclipse/ +Alternatively, you can install eclipse on your own machine and manually install the AlphaZ plugins directly. 
-#Path to the java used -- should NOT be changed +See the README in the AlphaZ git repo: \\ 
-export JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/java64/bin/ +https://mustang.cs.colostate.edu:3000/melange/AlphaZ
-export PATH=${JAVA_HOME}:${PATH}+
  
-${ECLIPSE_HOME}/eclipse $* -vmargs -d64 -Xms256m -Xmx1024m & +Note that this link is not public and is only accessible from the CSU network (you either need to be physically on campus or connected to the VPN).
-</code> +
-Save the above script as ''eclipse.custom'' on your home directory (~/eclipse.custom)\\ +
-Don't forget to give execute permission to the script.+
