Hi Henrik,

Apparently the Makefile didn't make it to the tarball we posted - that was a mistake.  We'll repost, in the meantime find it included below.  It has been compiled and tested on linux (on both i386 & amd64 processors).  Should work on other platforms too, though we haven't tested.


------------------BEGIN MAKEFILE----------------------
# This code requires the Affymetrix FileSDK to compile - it is available from
# <http://www.affymetrix.com/support/developer/filesdk/index.affx>
# There are several constants that may need to be defined to enable compilation
# and execution on specific operating systems. These are :
# Makefile variables you MUST set:
#    SDK_FILE                 Set to wherever the FileSDK is located.
#    SDK_PORTABILITY          Set to wherever the FileSDK is located.
# Compilation variables which you may need to add to the CPPFLAGS variable below:
#    IS_BIG_ENDIAN            Define if the machine represents data in big endian format.
#    _INCLUDE_UNISTD_HEADER_  Define if the UNISTD.H header file is used by your C++ compiler.
#    WIN32                    Define if using the MSVC++.NET compiler.
#    _USE_MEM_MAPPING_        Define if you want to enable memory mapping for BAR, BPMAP, CDF and CEL file reading.


# The following line is an example of what you should use on a big endian machine


	$(SDK_FILE)/CELFileData.cpp \
	$(SDK_FILE)/CDFFileData.cpp \
	$(SDK_FILE)/FileIO.cpp \
        hash.cpp \



all: $(EXE)

	$(CC) $(CPPFLAGS) $(OBJECTS) -o $@

	-rm -rf $(OBJECTS) $(EXE)

------------------END MAKEFILE----------------------
