Copy the perl script version10.pl to a file in your sod/abacus account. Make sure that you have your "data" file in the same directory. Run the perl program from the prompt by typing "perl filename". The perl script takes the input from the file named "data" and generates different VRML worlds and html files. You can open the "ga_index.html" file and view the different VRML worlds in one of the cluster windows machines (Most of the cluster machines have cosmoplayer plug-in already installed).
Open netscape browser and give the following URL:
(if using sod account)
(If using abacus account)
where username = your own user name
for eg: ftp://email@example.com/home/juell/
Then choose the appropriate directory in which you have the "ga_index.html" and then click on it to see the worlds.
You don't have to specifically give cb02. This signifies that you are connected to the 02 machine in the sod cluster. You can give any one of the machines from 01 to 12.
You cannot view the VRML world on the x-windows/sod machines as they
do not have the VRML plug-in and neither can you install it.
