As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested text file into HTML format (style: standard) with prefixed line numbers. Alternatively you can here view or download the uninterpreted source code file.

    2 Very quick installation instructions:
    3 
    4 * untar the tarball  (e.g. tar xvzf libspf2-<version>.tar.gz)
    5 * cd into the untarred directory  (e.g. cd libspf2-<version>)
    6 * configure
    7 * make
    8 * make check
    9 * make install

   13 Longer installation instructions:
   14 
   15 
   16 These are generic installation instructions copied from the autoconf
   17 documentation and hacked slightly.  This should be better than
   18 nothing, but maybe not. ;->

   21    The `configure' shell script attempts to guess correct values for
   22 various system-dependent variables used during compilation.  It uses
   23 those values to create a `Makefile' in each directory of the package.
   24 It may also create one or more `.h' files containing system-dependent
   25 definitions.  Finally, it creates a shell script `config.status' that
   26 you can run in the future to recreate the current configuration, and a
   27 file `config.log' containing compiler output (useful mainly for
   28 debugging `configure').
   29 
   30    It can also use an optional file (typically called `config.cache'
   31 and enabled with `--cache-file=config.cache' or simply `-C') that saves
   32 the results of its tests to speed up reconfiguring.  (Caching is
   33 disabled by default to prevent problems with accidental use of stale
   34 cache files.)
   35 
   36    If you need to do unusual things to compile the package, please try
   37 to figure out how `configure' could check whether to do them, and mail
   38 diffs or instructions to the address given in the `README' so they can
   39 be considered for the next release.  If you are using the cache, and at
   40 some point `config.cache' contains results you don't want to keep, you
   41 may remove or edit it.
   42 
   43    The file `configure.ac' (or `configure.in') is used to create
   44 `configure' by a program called `autoconf'.  You only need
   45 `configure.ac' if you want to change it or regenerate `configure' using
   46 a newer version of `autoconf'.
   47 
   48 The simplest way to compile this package is:
   49 
   50   1. `cd' to the directory containing the package's source code and type
   51      `./configure' to configure the package for your system.  If you're
   52      using `csh' on an old version of System V, you might need to type
   53      `sh ./configure' instead to prevent `csh' from trying to execute
   54      `configure' itself.
   55 
   56      Running `configure' takes awhile.  While running, it prints some
   57      messages telling which features it is checking for.
   58 
   59   2. Type `make' to compile the package.
   60 
   61   3. Optionally, type `make check' to run any self-tests that come with
   62      the package.
   63 
   64   4. Type `make install' to install the programs and any data files and
   65      documentation.
   66 
   67   5. You can remove the program binaries and object files from the
   68      source code directory by typing `make clean'.  To also remove the
   69      files that `configure' created (so you can compile the package for
   70      a different kind of computer), type `make distclean'.  There is
   71      also a `make maintainer-clean' target, but that is intended mainly
   72      for the package's developers.  If you use it, you may have to get
   73      all sorts of other programs in order to regenerate files that came
   74      with the distribution.
