ArrayPipe has been successfully tested on the following operating systems: Red Hat 7.3, Red Hat 9.0, Fedora Core 1, SuSE 9.0. It requires the installation of Ghostscript, which comes pre-installed with most Linux distributions, or can be downloaded from the Ghostscript home page. You also need to have the Perl GD.pm module, which can be downloaded from CPAN as well as the R statistical package (www.r-project.org) and BioConductor (www.bioconductor.org). They are all freely available. If you would like to run ArrayPipe as a web service, you need to have a web server in place (Apache 1.3.x and 2.0 both work fine).
For installation instructions, please refer to the INSTALL.txt file in the ArrayPipe package.
Documentation can be found in the README.txt file in the ArrayPipe package. In addition to this, a user guide and a tutorial can be found online.
