Installation of the `QuickThreads' threads-building toolkit.

* Notice

QuickThreads -- Threads-building toolkit.
Copyright (c) 1993 by David Keppel

Permission to use, copy, modify and distribute this software and
its documentation for any purpose and without fee is hereby
granted, provided that the above copyright notice and this notice
appear in all copies.  This software is provided as a
proof-of-concept and for demonstration purposes; there is no
representation about the suitability of this software for any
purpose.


* Configuration

Configure with

	./config *machtype*

where "*machtype*" is one of the supported target machines.  As of
October 1994, the supported machines (targets) are:

	axp --	All Digital Equipment Corporation AXP (DEC Alpha)
		processors, compile with GNU CC
	axp-osf1 -- AXP running OSF 1.x
	axp-osf2 -- AXP running OSF 2.x
	hppa -- HP's PA-RISC 1.1 processor
	hppa-cnx-spp -- Convex SPP (PA-RISC 1.1 processor)
	iX86 --	80386, 80486, and 80586-compatible processors
		See notes below for OS/2.
	iX86-ss -- 'iX86 for assemblers that use slash-slash ('//')
		comments.
	ksr1 --	All KSR processors
	m88k --	All members of the Motorola 88000 family
	mips --	MIPS R2000 and R3000 processors
	mips-irix5 -- Irix 5.xx (use `mips' for Irix 4.xx)
	sparc-os1 -- V8-compliant SPARC processors using compilers
		that prefix labels (e.g. "foo" appears as "_foo")
		Includes Solaris 1 (SunOS 4.X).
	sparc-os2 -- V8-compliant SPARC processors using compilers
		that do not prefix labels.  Includes Solaris 2.
	vax --	All VAX processors

In addition, the target `clean' will deconfigure QuickThreads.

Note that a given machine target may not work on all instances of that
machine because e.g., the assembler syntax varies from machine to
machine.

Note also that additions to a processor family may require a new
target.  So, for example, the `vax' target might not work for all
future VAX processors if, say, new VAX processors are introduced and
they use separate floating-point registers.

For OS/2, change `ranlib' to `ar -s', `configure' to `configure.cmd'
(or was that `config' to `config.cmd'?), and replace the soft links
(`ln -s') with plain copies.


* Build

To build the QuickThreads library, first configure (see above) then
type `make libqt.a' in the top-level directory.

To build the demonstration threads package, SimpleThreads, type
`make libstp.a' in the top-level directory.

To build an executable ``stress-test'' and measurement program, type
`make run' in the top-level directory.  Run `time/raw' to run the
stress tests.


* Installation

Build the QuickThreads library (see above) and then copy `libqt.a' to
the installation library directory (e.g., /usr/local/lib) and `qt.h'
and `qtmd.h' to the installation include directory (e.g.,
/usr/local/include).
