Requirements ------------ You will need a C compiler and a C library compatible with GNU libc. I use gcc 5.3.0 and 4.1.2, but the code should compile with any standards compliant compiler. Gcc is available at http://gcc.gnu.org. Procedure --------- 1. Unpack the archive if you have not done so already: tar -xf ed[version].tar.lz or lzip -cd ed[version].tar.lz | tar -xf - This creates the directory ./ed[version] containing the source from the main archive. 2. Change to ed directory and run configure. (Try 'configure --help' for usage instructions). cd ed[version] ./configure 3. Run make. make 4. Optionally, type 'make check' to run the tests that come with ed. 5. Type 'make install' to install the program and any data files and documentation. Or type 'make install-compress', which additionally compresses the info manual and the man page after installation. (Installing compressed docs may become the default in the future). You can install only the program, the info manual or the man page by typing 'make install-bin', 'make install-info' or 'make install-man' respectively. Another way ----------- You can also compile ed into a separate directory. To do this, you must use a version of 'make' that supports the 'VPATH' variable, such as GNU 'make'. 'cd' to the directory where you want the object files and executables to go and run the 'configure' script. 'configure' automatically checks for the source code in '.', in '..' and in the directory that 'configure' is in. 'configure' recognizes the option '--srcdir=DIR' to control where to look for the sources. Usually 'configure' can determine that directory automatically. After running 'configure', you can run 'make' and 'make install' as explained above. Copyright (C) 2006-2017 Antonio Diaz Diaz.
