========================================================== README file for the `orb' GAP4 package (Max Neunhoeffer) ========================================================== To get the newest version of this GAP 4 package download the archive file orb-x.x.tar.gz or orb-x.x.tar.bz2 or orb-x.x.zip and unpack it using gunzip orb-x.x.tar.gz; tar xvf orb-x.x.tar or bzip2 -d orb-x.x.tar.bz2; tar xvf orb-x.x.tar or unzip -x orb-x.x.zip respectively. Do this in a directory called 'pkg', preferably (but not necessarily) in the 'pkg' subdirectory of your GAP 4 installation. It creates a subdirectory called 'orb'. To install this package do cd orb ./configure If you installed orb in another directory than the usual 'pkg' subdirectory, do ./configure --with-gaproot=path where 'path' is a path to the main GAP root directory. See ./configure --help for further options. Afterwards call 'make' to compile a binary file. If you installed GAP on several architectures, you must execute this configure/make step on each of the architectures giving the correct CONFIGNAME on the command line of 'configure'. The package will not work without this step. If you installed the package in another 'pkg' directory than the standard 'pkg' directory in your GAP 4 installation, then you have to add the path to the directory containing your 'pkg' directory to GAP's list of directories. This can be done by starting GAP with the '-l' command line option followed by the name of the directory and a semicolon. Then your directory is prepended to the list of directories searched. Otherwise the package is not found by GAP. Of course, you can add this option to your GAP startup script. If you installed GAP on several architectures, you must execute the configure/make step for each of the architectures. You can either do this immediately after configuring and compiling GAP itself on this architecture, or alternatively (when using version 4.5 of GAP or newer) set the environment variable "CONFIGNAME" to the name of the configuration you used when compiling GAP before running "./configure". Note however that your compiler choice and flags (environment variables "CC" and "CFLAGS" need to be chosen to match the setup of the original GAP compilation. For example you have to specify 32-bit or 64-bit mode correctly! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Recompiling the documentation is possible by the command `gap makedoc.g' in the orb directory. But this should not be necessary. For bug reports, feature requests and suggestions, please refer to https://github.com/neunhoef/orb/issues
