Windows and OS/2

If you received CSL on diskettes, insert the first diskette and change to that drive. If you downloaded CSL, unzip the package into a temporary directory and change to it.

Run the installation program (for Windows SETUP.EXE, for OS/2 INSTALL.EXE) and follow the directions. After installation the temporary directory may be deleted.

Special Note for OS/2:

When using good old pkunzip2.exe to unpack the distribution archive, you have to rename it to an 8.3 name and use the -d switch to retain the directory structure:

    ren csl-x.y.z.os2.zip csl.zip
    pkunzip2 -d csl
    install

Source distributions for unixish systems

Unpack the archive as:

      tar xzvf csl-x.y.z.tar.gz

(Replace x.y.z by the version of CSL).

The archive will unpack into a single subdirectory named csl-x.y.z. Change to csl-x.y.z/Unix/Gnu and read the file INSTALL for further instructions how to build and install.

Binary distributions for unixish systems

You must be root to install the binary distribution!

  • Unpack the downloaded archive csl-x.y.z-sys-arch.tar.gz.
  • Change to the directory csl-x.y.z-sys-arch.
  • Unpack the archive files.tar to the desired destination. (The standard destination is /usr/local)
  • Run ldconfig

Example:

      tar xzf csl-4.3.0-FreeBSD-i386.tar.gz
      cd csl-4.3.0-FreeBSD-i386
      tar -C /usr/local -xf files.tar
      ldconfig

NOTE:

You may drop the install directory after installation, it is not required for using csl:

      cd ..
      rm -rf csl-4.3.0-FreeBSD-i386
