The binary of this distribution was compiled under OpenSuSE Leap 42.3 64bit LINUX with gcc version 4.8.5 (SUSE Linux) and should be compatible with most LINUX distributions. If you need other binary compilations, please access FADO downloads or send a message to Jean Michel Gomes.
The distribution package also contains two explanatory ascii files (ReadMe and Read_F), configuration files (FADO.config and PLOT.config), as well as the "Simple Stellar Population" (SSP) base library with the base file list Base.BC03.L. For testing purposes, the distribution package includes three characteristic de-redshifted spectra from SDSS-DR7 in ascii format, corresponding to a star-forming (spec1.txt), composite (spec2.txt) and LINER (spec3.txt) galaxy. Auxiliary files needed for execution of FADO (.HIfbound_em.ascii, .HeII_fbound.ascii, .HeIfboundem.ascii, grfont.dat and grfont.txt) are also included in the tarball. By decompressing the tarball the following six directories are created: input, output, plots, ReadMe, SSPs and tables.
You can find the FADO-SDSS full spectral fitting galaxy catalogue at http://www.iastro.pt/research/tools/fadoSDSS.html.
