In this tutorial, you will learn:

1. download the zip file.

2. extract the files into a temporary directory, say Temp. The extraction will create two subdirectory: res and out, where out is empty and res stores the input files required by the tutorial, as well as the command file named batch_cmd.txt that list all the processes that will be carried out.
3. Open a DOS/shell window, change the current directory to directory where you just extracted the file. There are three files in addition to the two subdirectory metioned above: run.cmd, run.sh and VisAnt.jar
4. to start the batch process, either type in run.cmd in Win OS, or run.sh in other systems. You will see the output of the batch processes similar to the following:



5. once finished, checkout the out directory for the results created by he batch processes.

6. modify the commands in batch_cmd.txt by either comment out using "#" or simply removes some of them. repeat step 4 to see the effect (remove all files in the out directory before repeat step 4).

to start the batch process either type in run.cmd in Win OS, or run.sh in other systems. You will see the output of the batch processes similar to the following:
