Hi Patrick ,
Thanks for the detailed mail, I will try it on Linux.

1. What do you want to use IGSTK for?
I want to use IGSTK as base Framework for Image Guidance and link it with 
ITK/VTK and other SPM for FMRI Analysis
I would like to give Histologically correction to the surgeon for robust 
analysis and surgical planning.

2. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself? (your research area, 
what do you use for software development)
Currently I am working with IBM and doing PhD , My Research Area is Image 
Guided Neurosurgery , Currently I am looking into Brain Image Segmentation 
and Registration and  , Surgical Planning and Guidance

Currently I am using VTK/ITK/FLTK and Matlab for Image Guidance

Hi Akash,

If you have Linux or Cygwin, then you should be able to use cvs command.

in the shell window, try
which cvs

if it gives you a path, then you have cvs command, if it shows
cvs: Command not found.
Then you have to install the cvs first or setting the path to this cvs 

Please follow this page to set up IGSTK
You need download ITK, VTK, and FLTK first.

Once you get there, you can then use 'ccmake' to make the project files 
for those libraries, and followed by a 'make' command to compile the 

To check out the IGSTK
cvs -d :pserver:anonymous at public.kitware.com:/cvsroot/IGSTK login
To the password question replay with "igstk" in lower case.
cvs -d :pserver:anonymous at public.kitware.com:/cvsroot/IGSTK co IGSTK

To check out the IGSTKSandbox (some components under rapid development)
cvs -d :pserver:anonymous at public.kitware.com:/cvsroot/IGSTK co IGSTK

The best way to learn to use the IGSTK is to look at the IGSTK/testing 
directory program for classes and the example applications in the 
IGSTKSandbox/Example directory.

We are preparing for the first pre-official release for SPIE in this 
Feb. And hopefully to release the "IGSTK:The Book" at the same time 
(Documentationa and user guide for this toolkit)

Feel free to email me when you get there and need further assistance.


PS: We'd appreciate that you can answer us several questions so that we 
can assist you better:

1. What do you want to use IGSTK for?

2. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself? (your research area, 
what do you use for software development)
