INTRODUCTION

RASP (Reconstruct Ancestral State in Phylogenies) is a tool for inferring ancestral state using S-DIVA (Statistical dispersal-vicariance analysis), Lagrange (DEC), Bayes-Lagrange (S-DEC), BayArea, BBM (Bayesian Binary MCMC), BayesTraits and ChromEvol.

Windows:
Download the archive from following:
RASP for Win (v3.2, 20150410)
Run “RASP.exe” to load the program.

System Requirement:
If you are using Windows 2000, 2003 or XP, please make sure that Microsoft® .NET 2 Framework is installed on your computer. This is usually installed through Windows updates, but it may be absent from older systems. The .NET framework 2 packages are available for free here and should be installed prior to using RASP.


Mac OS:
Download the archive from following:
RASP for Mac (v3.2, 20150410)
Run “RASP” to load the program.

System Requirement:
This version of RASP is developed for use on Mac OS X versions 10.6 and above on computers with Intel processors only. RASP for Mac uses the Wineskin program in order for RASP to run.

Linux:
There are very few people using the Linux version of RASP, so we will not update the old version of RASP for Linux.
For Linux users, one could use Wine and Winetricks to run RASP for Win (recommended). Using following command to install Winesticks and .NET framework:
wget http://kegel.com/wine/winetricks
sh winetricks dotnet20

Important: Please use "Root Terminal" to run RASP and RASP must be loaded in it's own folder. For instance:
Change the dictionary to RASP's folder: 'cd /home/user/Desktop/RASP_Win'
Run RASP: './RASP.exe'

You could also download the old version of RASP for Linux (Not recommended):
RASP for Linux (v2.0b, 20120319)
Run “RASP_linux.sh” to load the program.

System Requirement:
You need Mono runtime (Recommend version 2.6.7) and Mono-vbnc to run RASP. Mono is a software platform designed to allow developers to easily create cross platform applications. The Mono Framework packages are available for free here.
For Ubuntu 10.x and Debian 6.x users: Mono runtime have already installed in ubuntu. You may simply use “sudo apt-get install mono-vbnc” to install Mono-vbnc.
