The Zero Install Injector Copyright Thomas Leonard, 2006 INTRODUCTION A program is made up of many different components, typically written by different groups of people. Each component is available in multiple versions. The injector is used when starting a program. Its job is to decide which implementation of each required component to use. An interface describes what a component does. The injector starts with the interface for the program you want to run (like 'The Gimp') and chooses an implementation (like 'The Gimp 2.2.0'). However, this implementation will in turn depend on other interfaces, such as 'GTK' (which draws the menus and buttons). Thus, the injector must choose implementations of each dependancy (each of which may require further interfaces, and so on). See http://0install.net/injector.html for details. INSTALLATION The injector uses the normal Python distutils method of installation. To install, become root and run setup.py like this: $ su [ enter root password ] # python setup.py install # exit $ USE To run a program by its URI: $ 0launch http://rox.sourceforge.net/2005/interfaces/Edit To run create short-cut: $ 0alias rox-edit http://rox.sourceforge.net/2005/interfaces/Edit For more information, see the man-pages for 0launch, 0alias and 0store.
