                      Mathomatic Installation Instructions
                      ------------------------------------

The requirements for easy installation from source are the Unix or GNU make
utility and the GCC C compiler.  Other C compilers may be used, but may
require slight modification of the makefile and sources.  You will need to
open a shell window to compile and run Mathomatic.

Root (super-user) permission is needed to install Mathomatic, because write
permission is needed to copy files into the directories in "/usr/local".

A typical installation is done by typing the following at the shell prompt:

	make READLINE=1
	make test
	sudo make install

This will compile, test, and install the Mathomatic executable and docs in
"/usr/local" in less than a minute.  After this, typing "man mathomatic"
should bring up the man page.  Typing "mathomatic" should run Mathomatic.  If
Mathomatic doesn't run, check that the shell "PATH" environment variable
includes "/usr/local/bin".

If "sudo" doesn't work, login as root or type:

	su -c "make install"

and enter the root password to install as the super-user.

To completely remove Mathomatic from the system, type:

	sudo make uninstall
