11@heading To download @sc{Singular::Plural} for a Unix platform
12
13Make sure that you have approximately 12MByte of free disk space and follow
14these steps.
15
16@enumerate
17@item
18You need to download two (archive) files:
19@table @code
20@item SingularPlural-@value{VERSION}-share.tar.gz
21contains architecture independent data like documentation and libraries
22(alternatively, you may also download
23@code{SingularPlural-@value{VERSION}-share.zip}).
24@item SingularPlural-@value{VERSION}-<uname>.tar.gz
25contains architecture dependent executables, like the @sc{Singular::Plural}
26program.
27@end table
28@code{<uname>} is a description of the processor and operating
29system for which @sc{Singular::Plural} is compiled. Choose one of the following:
30@multitable @columnfractions .2 .8
31@item @code{ix86-Linux}
32@tab PC's running under Linux with @code{libc} version 6 (e.g., for SuSe
33Linux distribution version >= 6; RedHat Linux distribution version >= 5.2).
34@item @code{ix86-Linux-libc5}
35@tab PC's running under Linux with @code{libc} version 5 (if you are not
36sure which @code{libc} version you have, run @code{ldd /bin/ls}).
37@item @code{ix86-Win}
38@tab PC's running Windows 95/98/NT/2K which have Cygwin version 1.0 (or
39higher) already installed. Unless you are familiar with Cygwin, we
40recommend that you download one of the self-extracting archives as
41described below.
42@item @code{HPUX-9}
43@tab HP workstations running under HPUX version 9
44@item @code{HPUX-10}
45@tab HP workstations running under HPUX version 10
46@item @code{SunOS-5}
47@tab Sun workstations running Solaris version 5
48@item @code{IRIX-6}
49@tab IRIX workstations running IRIX version 6
50@item @code{AIX-4}
51@tab AIX workstations running AIX version 4
52@end multitable
53Please contact us if
54you cannot find an appropriate architecture dependent archive.
55
56@item
57Simply change to the directory in which you wish to install
58@sc{Singular} (usually wherever you install 3rd-party software):
59@smallexample
60cd /usr/local/ 
61@end smallexample
62
63@sc{Singular::Plural} specific subdirectories will be created in such a way
64that multiple versions and multiple architecture dependent files
65of @sc{Singular::Plural} can peaceably coexist under the same @code{/usr/local/}
66tree.
67
68@item
69Unpack the archives:
70@smallexample
71gzip -dc SingularPlural-@value{VERSION}-<uname>.tar.gz | tar -pxf -
72gzip -dc SingularPlural-@value{VERSION}-share.tar.gz | tar -pxf -
73@end smallexample
74If you have downloaded @code{SingularPlural-@value{VERSION}-share.zip},
75unpack with
76@smallexample
77unzip -u SingularPlural-@value{VERSION}-share.zip
78@end smallexample
79
80@item
81After unpacking, see the created file
82@code{Plural/@value{VERSION}/INSTALL} (which is also located at
83@uref{ftp://www.mathematik.uni-kl.de/pub/Math/Singular/non-commutative/Plural/INSTALL_unix.html}
84for details on how to finish the installation.
85@end enumerate
