pike.git/src/README:1:   This is what you need to do to install Pike:      1) Run ./configure, this is a sh script that will generate machine.h and    Makefile from machine.h.in and Makefile.in.       Some options for ./configure are: -  --prefix=/foo/bar if you want to install Pike in /foo/bar, +  --prefix=/foo/bar if you want to install Pike in /foo/bar,    default is /usr/local. -  --without-gdbm compile without gdbm support -  --without-gmp compile without gmp support -  --without-readline compile without readline support -  --without-debug compile without runtime debugging -  --without-threads compile without threads support -  --without-zlib compile without gzip compression libary support +  --without-gdbm compile without gdbm support +  --without-gmp compile without gmp support +  --without-readline compile without readline support +  --without-debug compile without runtime debugging +  --without-threads compile without threads support +  --without-zlib compile without gzip compression libary support +  --without-dynamic-modules compile statically, no dynamic loading used. +  (makes binary larger) +  --without-mysql compile without mysql support +  --with-profiling enables profiling pike code but slows +  down interpreter a little       You might also want to set the following environment variables:    CFLAGS Put extra flags for your C compiler here.    CPPFLAGS Put extra flags for your C preprocessor here    (such as -I/usr/gnu/include)    LDFLAGS Put extra flags to your linker here, such as -L/usr/gnu/lib    and -R/usr/gnu/lib       Use the above flags to make sure the configure script finds the    gdbm, gmp and readline libraries and include files if you need or
pike.git/src/README:61:    any errors back to me.      5) Your gmp/readline/gdbm libraries might not be working or incorrectly    installed, start over by running configure with the approperiate    --without-xxx arguments. Also note that threads might give problems    with I/O and signals. If so you need to run configure --without-threads.      6) Try a different compiler, malloc, compiler-compiler and/or make.    (if you have any other)    - 7) On Linux Slackware machines (older than slackware 3.0), Pike sometimes + 7) On old Linux Slackware machines (older than slackware 3.0), Pike sometimes    fails to find -lm, this is because of a bug in /usr/lib/libm.sa    (or possibly libg.a) in slackware.    Compile with 'make EXTRALIBS="-lc -lm"' to get around this bug.       Threads support on linux works on some releaes, you might need to add    an _ to line 36 in /usr/include/sched.h (change _P to __P).      8)   If you find a bug in the interpreter, the first thing to do is to make sure   the interpreter is compiled with DEBUG defined. If not recompile with DEBUG   and see if you get another error. When you've done this, please report the - bug to hubbe@lysator.liu.se and include as much as you can muster of the + bug to hubbe@hubbe.net and include as much as you can muster of the   following:    -  o The version of the driver. (can be found in lib/simulate.pike) +  o The version of the driver. (Try pike --version or look in src/version.c)    o What kind of system hardware/software you use (OS, compiler, etc.)    o the piece of code that crashes or bugs.    (preferably in a very small pike-script with the bug isolated)    Please send a complete running example of something that makes the    interpreter bug.    o a description of what it is that bugs and when.    o if you know how then also give me a backtrace and dump of vital variables    at the point of crash.    o or, if you found the error and corrected it, just send me the bugfix along    with a description of what you did and why.       /Fredrik Hubinette
