Building and installing

Berp uses the cabal infrastructure for configuring, building and installation.

To configure:

cabal configure

To build:

cabal build

To install:

cabal install

To clean:

Berp uses shelltestrunner for regression testing. Tests can be run like so:

Shelltestrunner can be installed from Hackage:

cabal install shelltestrunner

Don't worry if some tests fail.
