Hello,

I download the blast source code from ftp://ftp.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/blast/executables/blast+/2.3.0/ncbi-blast-2.3.0+-src.zip

There are a lot of files and folders. I want some documentation about each file. Or, the list of files that help me to build the blastn tool.

From where should I start? with which file? I want the name of the file that is executed when the end user clicks BLAST button from this page: http://blast.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Blast.cgi?PROGRAM=blastn&PAGE_TYPE=BlastSearch&LINK_LOC=blasthome

Thanks all,

That tone sounds quite demanding ;) There should be some documentation inside the source code, would be good practice. The compilation is done using the ./configure , make pipeline, more information is here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK279671/#_introduction_Source_tarball_

Once you have created the Makefile, you can look up which files go into the compilation of the blastn target.
