Install S-Lang by running the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc && make
To test the results, issue: make check. Note that this will also create a static version of the library which will then be installed in the next step.
Now, as the
make \ install_doc_dir=/usr/share/doc/slang-2.1.3 \ SLSH_DOC_DIR=/usr/share/doc/slang-2.1.3/slsh \ install-all && chmod -v 755 /usr/lib/libslang.so.2.1.3 \ /usr/lib/slang/v2/modules/*.so
make install_doc_dir=/usr/share/doc/slang-2.1.3 SLSH_DOC_DIR=/usr/share/doc/slang-2.1.3/slsh install-all: This command installs the static library as well as the dynamic shared version and related modules. It also changes the documentation installation directories to a versioned directory.

libraries. After checking that this is the case, /sbin/ldconfig should be run
while logged in as
