# The Large Time-Frequency Analysis Toolbox

- All your frame are belong to us -

You can have a look at the Sourceforge download page to see all available versions, or just download the latest one by clicking on the button.

## Installation

To install, simply unpack the package. The toolbox is contained in the 'ltfat' directory and in all the subdirectories. To use the toolbox, start Octave/Matlab, change to the 'ltfat' directory and run the
ltfatstart
command. This will set up the necessary paths and perform the necessary initializations.

If you have downloaded a binary package for Windows 7 or MacOS, compiled mex files for 64 bit Matlab are included in the package. Otherwise, you can compile the mex interfaces yourself.

To compile the mex/oct interfaces for faster execution of the toolbox, type the command:

ltfatmex
Further installation instructions can be found in the files INSTALL-Matlab and INSTALL-Octave. The currently supported platforms are:
• Octave 3.4 and higher on Linux. Tested on 32/64 bit Intel/AMD platforms.
• Octave 3.4 and higher on Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 (Windows 8 has not been tested).
• Octave 3.4 and higher on Mac OS X. Has not been tested, but should work out of the box.
• Matlab 2009b and later on 32/64 bit Windows (mexext=mexw32 and mexext=mexw64).
• Matlab 2009b and later on 32/64 bit Linux (mexext=mexglx and mexext=mexa64).
• Matlab 2009b and later on Mac OS X (mexext=mexmaci and mexext=mexmaci64).
