A credit evaluation expert system written in R5RS Scheme
================== INSTALLATION GUIDE
Generally, first you should install the Chicken implementation of the Revised^5 Report of the Scheme language. Then you install the required readline ``egg'' for Chicken. Readline is simply a package for I/O, and has nothing to do with the knowledge-engineering aspect of the system.
For Debian/Ubuntu users:
user@localhost $ sudo apt-get install chicken-bin libchicken-dev libchicken6
user@localhost $ sudo chicken-install readline
For Fedora/Redhat users:
$ sudo yum install chicken
$ sudo chicken-install readline
and so on...
For other distributions, just search for the name of the Chicken package in your distro's repository, and use your respective package manager to install. You can also build Chicken from source yourself, and install readline egg normally like the above examples.
For FreeBSD, you can use the lang/chicken port to install the latest stable release.
For NetBSD, you can use the lang/chicken package from pkgsrc to install the latest stable release.
For OpenBSD, you can use the lang/chicken package by running the following command as root: $ pkg_add chicken
For DragonFly BSD, you can use the lang/chicken package from pkgsrc to install the latest stable release.
If you're using MacPorts, installation is very simple:
$sudo port install chicken
$port install readline
