Welcome to the source code distribution of balance !


Linux (i386/itanium), FreeBSD, BSD/OS:
        make install

        Uncomment the LIBRARY and INSTALL definitions in the Makefile.
        make install

If you have any problems just change the very simple Makefile to
fit your needs. Shared memory should be enabled on your machine.

For cygwin uncomment the cygwin definitions in the Makefile first.

Information about new releases, mailing lists and other related issues
can be found at the balance homepage .

Reports of successful use of balance are appreciated.

Have fun...
