Installation -- /LineMode
Installing WWWThis section describes how to install
the World-Wide Web line-mode browser
called "www". First of all,
The browser has already been ported
to many machines. Check the list
of machine types for your machine.
If your machine is not one of those,
see the section on porting .
If the binary is availableIf you found your machine type, check
in the anonymous FTP archive for
the subdirectory of /pub/www/bin
for your machine. If that directory
exists and contains a file named
www with some version number appended,
then select binary mode and take
the file, calling your copy www.
Otherwise, go to >a href=#Compiling>"compiling
from source" .
If a binary is not available, get
- Copy www into an apropriate directory
which appears in your path. If you
can be superuser, this can be /usr/local/bin/www
(typically) so that everyone can
use www. If you cannot be superuser,
see how to use ww without being superuser
- If you type "rehash", you will be
able to use www. It will start at
a default home page which is at CERN.
- To make your own home page, take
the tar file WWWLineModeDefaults.tar.Z.
Unwrap it and put the files into
a directory /usr/local/lib/WWW. Now
skip to make yourself at home below.
- You must get, uncompress and untar
BOTH the WWWLineMode* product AND
the WWWLibrary* product source tar
- Find the subdirectory of WWW/LineMode
named after your machine type. cd
- Check the directory definitions in
the Makefile, and change them if
necessary. See the definition of
the macros in the file Implementation/CommonMakefile
- Type "make lib". You should get a
- Type "make". You should get a binary
The "make install" step creates a
copy in your system directories of
the www executable and the basic
documenattion. If you wish to just
soft link them to the files on the
WWW tree, say "make link" instead.
After either of these, "make clean"
will remove intermediate files.
You must now check that the default
"Home" page works, and customize
it if it is not what you want. The
default home page just a place to
start. The cern.html file (distributed
at the same time) is an example of
a customized home page. You may wish
to chose one of these as a basis.
- Become superuser (su root). If you
can't do this, see how to do it without
being superuser ).
- Type "make install". A reference
copy of the executable is made and
copied into the system.
