(We advise against using the source code. We advise instead to download one of the executables above. Building Consed from source is error prone and not simple which is why I provide executables. Due to time limitations I cannot provide any assistance in building Consed. Even if you do not modify the source, you may introduce errors due to using a different version of the compiler, a different version of Motif, different versions of other libraries than I used, etc. For this reason, if you discover Consed bugs, I can only offer help with those bugs if you first reproduce those bugs with an executable provided by me--not an executable you have built. Modifying Consed is also difficult. Although Consed is modular, some modules are used by many other modules. Thus making a change in one place can have unforeseen effects on many other features. It may takes months for you to notice these other side-effects which may not seem connected at all. It is not feasable for me to provide help with modifying Consed sources because of the potentially huge amount of time involved. Then why do we even provide the sources? Due to popular demand.)
