[ADMB Users] compiling a TPL file in a different directory?

Hi Ben,

Here's a couple of "getting started" docs in the admb-project website:



Currently they reside in workshop and course material, I'll link them from the main Documentation page.

  In case I do get around to this: can somebody point me to "getting
started" information that already exists that I would be allowed to
parasitize?  (Dave's fix improves the specific points, but I still think
there's room for a short section that points out how you actually run
models once you have successfully installed ADMB following the
platform-specific instructions.)
