Answer

GitHub is an open-source repository providing access to source code and select executables for a select group of users.

By clicking on the green Code button, you will the Download Zip option. This will allow you to download the full branch of your selection as a compressed zip file.

If an executable is not present, you may compile the code to generate one, or alternatively, load it into an interpreter to execute the program. Often, instructions are provided in accompanying readme files to guide users in using the code.
