Requirements
------------
You will need a C compiler.
I use gcc 5.3.0 and 4.1.2, but the code should compile with any standards
compliant compiler.
Gcc is available at http://gcc.gnu.org.

The operating system must allow signal handlers read access to objects with
static storage duration so that the cleanup handler for Control-C can delete
the partial output file.


Procedure
---------
1. Unpack the archive if you have not done so already:

	tar -xf lzlib[version].tar.lz
or
	lzip -cd lzlib[version].tar.lz | tar -xf -

This creates the directory ./lzlib[version] containing the source from
the main archive.

2. Change to lzlib directory and run configure.
   (Try 'configure --help' for usage instructions).

	cd lzlib[version]
	./configure

   If you are compiling on MinGW, use:

	./configure CFLAGS+='-D __USE_MINGW_ANSI_STDIO'

3. Run make.

	make

4. Optionally, type 'make check' to run the tests that come with lzlib.

5. Type 'make install' to install the library and any data files and
   documentation. (You may need to run ldconfig also).

   Or type 'make install-compress', which additionally compresses the
   info manual after installation. (Installing compressed docs may
   become the default in the future).

   You can install only the library, the info manual or the man page by
   typing 'make install-lib', 'make install-info' or 'make install-man'
   respectively.

   'make install-bin' installs the minilzip program and its man page.
   'install-bin' installs a shared minilzip if the shared library has
   been configured. Else it installs a static minilzip.
   'make install-as-lzip' runs 'make install-bin' and then links
   minilzip to the name 'lzip'.


Another way
-----------
You can also compile lzlib into a separate directory.
To do this, you must use a version of 'make' that supports the 'VPATH'
variable, such as GNU 'make'. 'cd' to the directory where you want the
object files and executables to go and run the 'configure' script.
'configure' automatically checks for the source code in '.', in '..' and
in the directory that 'configure' is in.

'configure' recognizes the option '--srcdir=DIR' to control where to
look for the sources. Usually 'configure' can determine that directory
automatically.

After running 'configure', you can run 'make' and 'make install' as
explained above.
