INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS 1. Unzip this to create a blatSrc directory. 2. Check that the environment variable MACHTYPE exists on your system. It should on Unix. (And making this on non-Unix systems is beyond the scope of this README). For a Linux system MACHTYPE will probably be 'i386', for and Alpha it will be 'alpha', for a Sun probably 'sparc'. If necessary set up this environment variable. Do this under the bash shell as so: MACHTYPE=something export MACHTYPE or under tcsh as so: setenv MACHTYPE something 3. Make the directory ~/bin/$MACHTYPE which is where the (non-web) executables will go. Add this directory to your path. 4. Go to the lib directory. If it doesn't already exist do a mkdir $MACHTYPE. 5. If you're on an alpha system do a: setenv SOCKETLIB -lxnet on Solaris do setenv SOCKETLIB "-lsocket -lnsl" on SunOS do setenv SOCKETLIB "-lsocket -lnsl -lresolv" on Linux you can skip this step. 6. At the blatSrc directory type 'make'
