Annotation of gforth/INSTALL.BINDIST, revision 1.2

1.1       anton       1: This file discribes how to install Gforth from a binary distribution
                      2: (i.e., a distribution, where the package file name contains a
                      3: machine/OS name).
                      5: Installation is quite simple: Type
                      7: make install
                      9: and you are set. You can
1.2     ! anton      11: make check
1.1       anton      12: make bench
                     14: first, to make sure that the binary works.
                     16: If you want to know more: A binary distribution contains all the files
                     17: of the source distribution, and a few more, in particular the
                     18: executable `gforth'. The configuration options we used for creating it
                     19: can be seen in config.status. Basically, we use the default; among
                     20: other things, this means installation in the /usr/local hierarchy; if
                     21: this does not suit you, "make distclean" and continue by reading
                     22: INSTALL.
                     24: The only deviation from the default is with respect to options like
                     25: --enable-force-reg, which by default are not used, because they don't
                     26: work with all versions of gcc; we use them, if they work with the
                     27: compiler we use. We try to give you good performance, but two
                     28: compatible machines may require different options for best performance
                     29: (e.g., --enable-direct-threading is good for the 486, and bad for the
                     30: Pentium).
