Building from source

Build instructions are also in README, but here we can be more descriptive:

You can download all files as a ZIP archive from here or using git:

 git clone https://github.com/rebol/r3.git

to build Rebol 3 you need Rebol 3: download it from http://www.rebol.com/r3/downloads.html .

  1. Put the rebol3 binary in the make directory,
  2. rename it to r3-make,
  3. launch make prep.
  4. launch make
  5. optional - launch make host - it will build also the host executable and the shared library needed for it to work.
If rebol3 binary doesn't exist for your OS, you can build Rebol3 copying the generated files from make prep form another platform.

Rebol binary will be the r3 executable in your directory.

Linux recommendation

If you are on a 64bit machine, probably you'll need also the following command before compiling:

 sudo apt-get install libc6-dev-i386

or if a RedHat based dist

 yum install glibc-devel.i686
