These instructions are temporary till I (or someone) writes better ones. It should work on windows, macs, linux, etc but has only been tested on linux and windows at this point. The windows documentation will be improving soon and I'd love a volunteer to document the steps needed for it to install on Mac OSX (should be fairly easy).
You need the following pieces of software before you can use GeoQO:
Note: SQLite2 is a simple (but powerful) database engine and geoqo can use other databases too if you'd rather.
(for windows: free perl from activatestate )
Grab a GeoQO software bundle (either a .zip (especially windows) or a .tar.gz if you'd prefer) and extract it to a folder.
You can also learn below about how to grab the most recent development snapshot.
Run the following command in the geoqo source directory:
It will list some required and optional perl modules you need to install and others you may wish to install. To install them, use the following instructions:
|Run perl -MCPAN -e shell (as root or in sudo) and at the prompt type "install MODULENAME" for each listed module you need or want||Run the "ppm" program and use it to install each missing module|
Windows users: you need to get the nmake program from the Microsoft site [XXX: I don't think this is best URL to use?]
in a shell window in the GeoQO source directory type:
perl Makefile.PL make make install [as root if running unix/linux]

You can get the current most up to date GeoQO program in development from the subversion repository (svn). Note: don't use the svn sources if you want stability; use the versioned releases above instead.
Run this svn command to get the source:
svn co https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/geoqo/trunk/geoqo
When you want to update to the newest code, run this command:
