In order to compile Grace-5.1.25 I need to run configure first. But configure does not seem to exist. In earlier versions of MacOS I used configure several times. Does anyone know where I can obtain configure ?

    There is no configure program. What this is telling you is to use the make config directive prior to compiling and installing (make install) the program

Delete the question! I found "configure" in another directory. Apologies for asking

  • If you could edit this to show where and how you searched, where it was found, I bet people would learn from this.

  • I had downloaded the source code for an application (xppaut), which included a "configure" file as well as the usual README. I had been remiss in reading the directory listing for the source code.
