1.1       anton       5: This file discribes how to install Gforth from a binary distribution
                      6: (i.e., a distribution, where the package file name contains a
                      7: machine/OS name).
                      9: Installation is quite simple: Type
                     11: make install
                     13: and you are set. You can
1.2       anton      15: make check
1.1       anton      16: make bench
                     18: first, to make sure that the binary works.
                     20: If you want to know more: A binary distribution contains all the files
                     21: of the source distribution, and a few more, in particular the
                     22: executable `gforth'. The configuration options we used for creating it
                     23: can be seen in config.status. Basically, we use the default; among
                     24: other things, this means installation in the /usr/local hierarchy; if
                     25: this does not suit you, "make distclean" and continue by reading
                     26: INSTALL.
                     28: The only deviation from the default is with respect to options like
                     29: --enable-force-reg, which by default are not used, because they don't
                     30: work with all versions of gcc; we use them, if they work with the
                     31: compiler we use. We try to give you good performance, but two
                     32: compatible machines may require different options for best performance
                     33: (e.g., --enable-direct-threading is good for the 486, and bad for the
                     34: Pentium).
