Installation of S-Lang

[Note]

Note

This package does not support parallel build.

Install S-Lang by running the following commands:

./configure --prefix=/usr \
            --sysconfdir=/etc \
            --with-readline=gnu &&
make -j1

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 root user:

make install_doc_dir=/usr/share/doc/slang-2.2.4   \
     SLSH_DOC_DIR=/usr/share/doc/slang-2.2.4/slsh \
     install-all &&

chmod -v 755 /usr/lib/libslang.so.2.2.4 \
             /usr/lib/slang/v2/modules/*.so

Command Explanations

--with-readline=gnu: This parameter sets GNU Readline to be used by the parser interface instead of the S-Lang internal version.

make install_doc_dir=/usr/share/doc/slang-2.2.4 SLSH_DOC_DIR=/usr/share/doc/slang-2.2.4/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.
