This guide describes the structure and setup of the standard VERA development
environment (VERA Dev Env) and standard VERA Third Party Libraries (TPLs) that
need to be in place before installing many of the VERA simulation components.
It describes everything from the initial setup on a new machine to the final
build, testing, and installation of VERA components. The goal of this
document is to describe how to create the directories and contents outlined in
`Standard VERA Dev Env Directory Structure`_ and then obtain the remaining
VERA source and build, test, and install any of the necessary VERA components
on a given system. This document describes the process both for a development
version of VERA and for a released tarball of the VERA sources.
