All that tells you is "install gosmore" and "make a pak file available". The other site tells you how you actually can "talk" to gosmore in a programm.

thank you for your guidance, but Gosmore show that it did not find the pak file,is there anything wrong with my operation?

I don't know. You didn't really tell use how and where you installed gosmore and which pak file you used and where it is stored.

Firstly note that I forked YOURS to make the Routing Demo. You can grab my latest tarball. My changes include support for IE, restricting jQuery to it's own namespace, making routes dragable and many bug fixes.

The best way to install gosmore is to follow the instructions on the Gosmore wiki page, i.e. svn co, configure and make. The "make install" step is not necessary. Then rebuild with an extract and test it e.g.

QUERY_STRING="flat=45.303213&flon=-63.304713&tlat=44.6890011&tlon=-63.8092375fast=1&v=motorcar" ./gosmore

Although there are scripts for rebuilding the complete planet (in 2 sections), it is strongly advised that you use the shared infrastructure.
