Annotation of gforth/INSTALL, revision 1.9

1.7       anton       1: You need gcc version 2.0 or later to compile gforth.
1.1       anton       2: 
1.5       anton       3: First, type
1.3       anton       4:

1.1       anton       6: 
1.4       pazsan      7: configure has the following useful parameters:
1.9     ! anton       8:   --prefix=PREFIX         install architecture-independent files in PREFIX
        !             9:                           [default: /usr/local]
        !            10:   --exec-prefix=PREFIX    install architecture-dependent files in PREFIX
        !            11:                           [default: same as prefix]
1.8       anton      12:   --enable-force-reg      Use explicit register declarations if they appear in
                     13:                           the machine.h file. This can cause a good speedup,
                     14:                           but also incorrect code with some gcc versions on
                     15:                           some processors (default disabled).
                     16:   --enable-direct-threaded      Force direct threading. This may not work on
                     17:                                 some machines and may cause slowdown on others.
                     18:                                 (default processor-dependent)
                     19:   --enable-indirect-threaded    Force indirect threading. This can cause a
                     20:                                 slowdown on some machines.
                     21:                                 (default processor-dependent)
                     22:   --with-debug     specifies option -g to compile with debug info (default)
                     23:    --without-debug  omits the -g switch and creates smaller images on
                     24:                     machines where strip has problems with gcc style
                     25:                     debugging informations.
                     26:   --help: tells you about other parameters.
1.1       anton      27: 
1.9     ! anton      28: If you don't like the defaults for the installation directories, you
        !            29: should override them already during configure.  E.g., if you want to
        !            30: install in the /gnu hierarchy instead of in the default /usr/local
        !            31: hirarchy, say
1.5       anton      32: 
1.9     ! anton      33: ./configure --prefix=/gnu
1.2       anton      34:

        !            36: 
1.5       anton      37: make
                     38: 
                     39: If your make has trouble with the Makefile, "make gforth" might work.
1.2       anton      40: 
1.9     ! anton      41: If your installed gcc isn't called "gcc" (e.g., called "gcc-2.6.1"), type
1.1       anton      42: 
1.7       anton      43: make GCC=<whatever you call your gcc>

1.7       anton      54: 
                     55: If everything is allright, you may want to install gforth. Type

1.9     ! anton      59: You have to make an entry in the info directory file manually. Also,
        !            60: you have to install gforth.ps and html yourself.
