How to use windows executables on Mac OSX using Wine
Special thanks to Rebecca Payne (Biostat student who took Epid 293), we now have a nice instruction on how to run windows executables on Mac OSX using Wine:
1. Download the Windows binary file (e.g. genome.exe from the GENOME package).
2. Follow the instructions at http://www.davidbaumgold.com/tutorials/wine-mac/ to install Wine on your Mac (Parts 1-4). Wine will allow you to run the Windows executable file on your Mac without using a Windows emulator.
3. Restart Terminal and navigate to the folder containing genome.exe.
4. Use Genome as usual; however, to call Genome you must write
For example, instead of
$genome -pop 2 20 20 -N 1000 -mig 0.0025 > output.txt
one would write
$wine genome.exe -pop 2 20 20 -N 1000 -mig 0.0025 > output.txt
