Elk can be compiled by first running "./setup" in this directory followed by
"make all". This will compile the main code as well as several auxiliary
programs. For optimal performance we strongly recommend that you tune the
Fortran compiler options in the file "make.inc" and use machine-optimised
BLAS/LAPACK libraries. Setting the OpenMP and MPI options of your compiler will
enable Elk to run in parallel mode on multiprocessor systems and clusters.

A test suite is available: entering "make test" will check the output of your
executable against a standard set. This may take some time to complete.

Auxiliary programs include "spacegroup" for producing crystal geometries from
spacegroup data, and "eos" for fitting equations of state to energy-volume data.

Elk is updated regularly with new features and bug fixes. Features not listed as
"experimental" may be used for production but, as with any code, please check
the consistency of your results carefully.
