E.2.4 Building Singular

The user can build and install Singular with the following standard UNIX-like procedure:

  • Download and extract the latest official source package (.tar.gz).
  • Run the configure script, for instance, ./configure.
  • Build Singular by running make.
  • Install Singular by running make install.

In contrast to Singular 3, there are now many more configuration options.

All possible options for configure can be seen by running the configure script with option --help. On a multicore compute consider running make with the option -j [cores].
