removal of the $Id$ svn tag from everywhere NOTE: the git SHA1 may be used instead (only on special places) NOTE: the libraries Singular/LIB/*.lib still contain the marker due to our current use of svn

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