To install Viper, do:
tar xf viper.tar
Then do the following:
1. To compile Lisp:
Since the DVI and Info files are bundled with the distribution, this is
the only make command you need.
2. To recompile the DVI files (if you have to), type:
3. To re-make the info files (if needed), type:
4. To redo everything:
"make all" is useful if you made your own changes to the *.texi or
*.el files. This way, this single command will recompile exactly what's
5. You can also run
to do what "make all" does plus to copy viper*.elc into
a suitable Lisp directory and Viper Info files into the Info
directory; DVI files containing printable version of Viper
Manual and Reference Card will be copied into the 'etc' directory.
You will still have to edit the 'dir' file manually (see below), if
you haven't done so during a previous installation.
To make all this happen, you will most likely have to change the PREFIX
variable in Makefile and, possibly, one or more of these variables:
DATADIR, LISPDIR, INFODIR, ETCDIR, and VERSION
if they don't point to the right directories in your installation.
You also need to have a write permission for all directories
mentioned in LISPDIR, INFODIR, and ETCDIR.
6. XEmacs users must invoke make with the parameter EMACS=xemacs.
Even better: edit Makefile directly as indicated in the comments there.
