Installation of the pcl-cvs program
1. Possibly edit the file `Makefile' to reflect the situation at your
site. We say "possibly" because the version of pcl-cvs included
with CVS uses a configuration mechanism integrated with the overall
mechanisms used by the CVS build and install procedures. Thus the
file `Makefile' will be generated automatically from the file
`Makefile.in', and it should not be necessary to edit it further.
If you do have to edit the `Makefile', the only things you have to
change is the definition of `lispdir' and `infodir'. The elisp
files will be copied to `lispdir', and the info file(s) to
2. Configure pcl-cvs.el
There are a couple of pathnames that you have to check to make
sure that they match your system. They appear early in the file
*NOTE:* If your system is running emacs 18.57 or earlier you MUST
uncomment the line that says:
(setq delete-exited-processes nil)
Setting `delete-exited-processes' to `nil' works around a bug in
emacs that causes it to dump core. The bug was fixed in emacs
3. Release 1.05 and later of pcl-cvs requires parts of the Elib
library, version 1.0 or later. Elib is available via anonymous
ftp from prep.ai.mit.edu in `pub/gnu/elib-1.0.tar.gz', and from a
lot of other sites that mirror prep. Get Elib, and install it,
*NOTE:* The version of pcl-cvs included with CVS includes a copy
of Elib in the sub-directory `elib' under the `contrib/elib'
4. Type `make install' in the source directory. This will
byte-compile all `.el' files and copy the `*.elc' files into the
directory you specified in step 1.
If you want to install the `*.el' files too, you can type `make
install-el' to do so.
If you only want to create the compiled elisp files, but don't
want to install them, you can type `make' without parameters.
5. Edit the file `default.el' in your emacs lisp directory (usually
`/usr/gnu/lib/emacs/site-lisp' or something similar) and enter the
contents of the file `pcl-cvs-startup.el' into it. It contains a
couple of `auto-load's that facilitates the use of pcl-cvs.
Installation of the on-line manual.
1. Create the info file(s) `pcl-cvs.info*' from `pcl-cvs.texinfo' by
typing `make info'. If you don't have the program `makeinfo' you
can get it by anonymous ftp from e.g. `prep.ai.mit.edu' as
`pub/gnu/texinfo-3.7.tar.gz' (there might be a newer version there
when you read this).
2. Install the info file(s) `pcl-cvs.info*' into your standard `info'
directory. You should be able to do this by typing `make
3. Edit the file `dir' in the `info' directory and enter one line to
contain a pointer to the info file(s) `pcl-cvs.info*'. The line
can, for instance, look like this:
* Pcl-cvs: (pcl-cvs). An Emacs front-end to CVS.
How to make typeset documentation from pcl-cvs.texinfo
If you have TeX installed at your site, you can make a typeset manual
1. Run TeX by typing ``make pcl-cvs.dvi''. You will not get the
indices unless you have the `texindex' program.
2. Convert the resulting device independent file `pcl-cvs.dvi' to a
form which your printer can output and print it. If you have a
postscript printer there is a program, `dvi2ps', which does. There
is also a program which comes together with TeX, `dvips', which
you can use.
