Some users have created modified versions of Astropulse (or SETI@home) that are intended to run faster on their own computer. We don't provide a lot of support for this; if you want to do this you are mostly on your own. However, we do provide the astropulse portion of the app_info.xml file that you will need. Even if you want to optimize SETI@home and not Astropulse, you will still need an app_info.xml entry for Astropulse.
To update your applications:
The app_info.sam file below contains text that should be inserted into your existing app_info.xml, either before or after the similar block used by seti@home, but still inside the <app_info> tags. When you edit your app_info.xml, be sure to remove any space before a backslash: <main_program/>, rather than <main_program />. These tags will evidently cause problems after the file is edited, if the space is not removed.
