Creating a new application directory¶
Copying an existing example¶
The simplest approach to implementing something new is to start with a Clawpack example and modify the code appropriately.
Rather than modifying one of the examples in place, it is best to copy it to a new directory. Clawpack should work fine from any directory as long as the environment variable is set properly. (See Set environment variables.)
In unix/linux you can copy a directory recursively (with all subdirectories intact) using the cp -r command, e.g.
$ cp -r $CLAW/classic/examples/acoustics_1d_example1 path/to/newdir
