Install S-Lang by running the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc && make && make elf
To test the results, issue: make runtests.
Now, as the root user:
make install-elf && chmod -v 755 /usr/lib/libslang.so.2.0.6
--with-readline=gnu: Use this parameter to use the system-installed version of Readline instead of the S-Lang internal version.
make elf and make install-elf: These commands create and install the dynamic shared version of the S-Lang library as well as an S-Lang script interpreter and related modules.
As with most libraries, there is no configuration to do, save that the library directory, i.e., /opt/lib or /usr/local/lib should appear in /etc/ld.so.conf so that ldd can find the shared libraries. After checking that this is the case, /sbin/ldconfig should be run while logged in as root.
