14.2.2: Pre-compiled unix versions

Pre-compiled versions of Gri exist for various computers, e.g. SPARC (both sunOS and solaris), IBM-RS, Sequent, and Linux. The following instructions, which assume a version number 2.12.18, and a SPARC solaris machine, show how to install these.

The compressed tar file, with a name like `gri-binary-SunOS5-2.12.18.tar.gz' (in this example a Sun OS 5 binary is assumed, with gri version number 2.12.18) contains a directory which holds the executable Gri file, `gri', the library file `gri.cmd', an instructions file, `README', and a Makefile to install Gri.

Here's how to install Gri, starting with this tar file:

  1. First, uncompress (unzip) the file, and un-tar it, by doing

    gunzip -c gri-binary-SunOS5-2.12.18.tar.gz | tar xvf -


    zcat gri-binary-SunOS5-2.12.18.tar.gz | tar xvf -

    This will yield a new directory, with a name like `gri-binary-SunOS5-2.12.18', which contains the indicated files.

  2. Follow the instructions in the `README' file to install Gri.
