Quick Start Guide

To facilitate the usage of Peano, I write a quick start guide that I call cookbook. This is a very hands-on document that I continue to write from time to time, i.e. it is always under construction. While the version available here should be recently up-to-date, the most recent version can be found in the SVN.

The sections in the guide start basically from scratch, and the examples are made to demonstrate the basic concepts step by step. The final outcomes of the individual sections are thus not really breath-taking, sophisticated or mature. If you want to assess more advanced codes and solutions built upon Peano, I do collect some of them in the Gallery or at least provide links to the underlying projects there.

Below, you find the code snippets for particular chapters of the guide. These snippets are not required to follow it - they just spare you from coding anything yourself.
