ImageJ Icon   OS X Installation

To install and run SalsaJ, download the Mac .tar.gz file, extract the SalsaJ directory, change to the SalsaJ directory, and execute the 'salsaJ' script.

Here is an example:

tar -zxvf salsaJ_VO1-Mac.tgz
cd SalsaJ
This installation does not include Sun's Java Runtime Environment 1.5.

To make more than 512MB of memory available to SalsaJ, edit the 'SalsaJ' script. For example, changing the script to

./jre/bin/java -Xmx256m -jar salsaj.jar
makes 256MB available to SalsaJ.

To upgrade to the latest version of  SalsaJ, replace the salsaj.jar JAR file in the SalsaJ directory by the new one .
