NAME
       How to build Tardy
       Copyright  (C)  1993,  1994,  1995, 1996, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002,
       2003, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011	Peter Miller

       The tardy program is distributed	under the terms	 of  the  GNU  General
       Public License.	See the	LICENSE	section, below,	for more details.

       tardy a., slow to act, behind time.

BEFORE YOU START
       There  are  a  few pieces of software you may want to fetch and install
       before you proceed with your installation of Tardy.

       Boost Library
	       You will	need the C++ Boost Library.  If	you are	using a	 pack-
	       age  based system, you will need	the libboost-devel package, or
	       one named something very	similar.
	       http://boost.org/

       cpio    The test	suite uses the cpio(1) command to create CPIO archives
	       for testing.

       GNU Groff
	       The  documentation for the Tardy	package	was prepared using the
	       GNU Groff package (version 1.14 or later).   This  distribution
	       includes	 full documentation, which may be processed into Post-
	       Script or DVI files at install time - if	 GNU  Groff  has  been
	       installed.

       GCC     You may also want to consider fetching and installing the GNU C
	       Compiler	if you have not	done so	already.  This is  not	essen-
	       tial.   Tardy was developed using the GNU C++ compiler, and the
	       GNU C++ libraries.

       libexplain
	       The libexplain project provides a library  if  system-call-spe-
	       cific  sterror(3) replacements, for more	informative error mes-
	       sages.
	       http://libexplain.sourceforge.net/

       zlib    zlib is a library implementing the deflate  compression	method
	       (and inflate decompression method) found	in gzip(1) and PKZIP.
	       http://zlib.net/

SITE CONFIGURATION
       The  tardy  program  is	configured  using  the	configure shell	script
       included	in this	distribution.

       The configure shell script attempts to guess correct values for various
       system-dependent	 variables  used  during  compilation, and creates the
       Makefile	and libtardy/config.h files.  It also creates a	 shell	script
       config.status  that  you	 can run in the	future to recreate the current
       configuration.

       Normally, you just cd to	the directory containing tardy's  source  code
       and type
	      %	./configure
	      ...lots of output...
	      %
       If  you're  using  csh on an old	version	of System V, you might need to
       type
	      %	sh configure
	      ...lots of output...
	      %
       instead to prevent csh from trying to execute configure itself.

       Running configure takes a minute	or  two.   While  it  is  running,  it
       prints  some messages that tell what it is doing.  If you don't want to
       see the messages, run configure using the --quiet option; for example,
	      %	./configure --quiet
	      %

       By default, configure will arrange for  the  make  install  command  to
       install the tardy program's files in /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/man.
       You can specify an installation prefix other than /usr/local by	giving
       configure the option --prefix=PATH.

       You  can	 specify  separate installation	prefixes for architecture-spe-
       cific files and architecture-independent	files.	If you give  configure
       the  option  --exec-prefix=PATH	the tardy package will use PATH	as the
       prefix for installing programs and libraries.  Data files and  documen-
       tation  will  still  use	 the  regular prefix.  Normally, all files are
       installed using the same	prefix.

       configure ignores any other arguments that you give it.

       On systems that require unusual options for compilation or linking that
       the  tardy package's configure script does not know about, you can give
       configure initial values	for variables by setting them in the  environ-
       ment.  In Bourne-compatible shells, you can do that on the command line
       like this:
	      $	CC='gcc	-traditional' LIBS=-lposix ./configure
	      ...lots of output...
	      $
       Here are	the make variables that	you might want to override with	 envi-
       ronment variables when running configure.

       Variable: CC
	       C compiler program.  The	default	is cc.

       Variable: INSTALL
	       Program to use to install files.	 The default is	install	if you
	       have it,	cp otherwise.

       Variable: LIBS
	       Libraries to link with, in the form -lfoo -lbar.	 The configure
	       script will append to this, rather than replace it.

       If  you	need  to  do unusual things to compile the package, the	author
       encourages you to figure	out how	configure could	check  whether	to  do
       them,  and mail diffs or	instructions to	the author so that they	can be
       included	in the next release.

BUILDING TARDY
       All you should need to do is use	the
	      %	make
	      ...lots of output...
	      %
       command and wait.  When this finishes you should	see a directory	called
       bin  containing	one file: tardy.  The tardy program is a tar post-pro-
       cessor.

       You can remove the program binaries and object files  from  the	source
       directory by using the
	      %	make clean
	      ...lots of output...
	      %
       command.	  To  remove all of the	above files, and also remove the Make-
       file and	libtardy/config.h and config.status files, use the
	      %	make distclean
	      ...lots of output...
	      %
       command.

       The file	etc/configure.ac is used to create configure by	a GNU  program
       called  autoconf.  You only need	to know	this if	you want to regenerate
       configure using a newer version of autoconf.

TESTING	TARDY
       The tardy program comes with a test suite.  To run this test suite, use
       the command
	      %	make sure
	      ...lots of output...
	      Passed All Tests
	      %

       The  tests take a about a minute	each, with a few very fast, and	a cou-
       ple very	slow, but it varies greatly depending on your CPU.

INSTALLING TARDY
       The tardy program is installed under the	/usr/local  tree  by  default.
       Use the --prefix=PATH option to configure if you	want some other	path.

       All that	is required to install the tardy program is to use the
	      %	make install
	      ...lots of output...
	      %
       command.	 Control of the	directories used may be	found in the first few
       lines of	the Makefile file if you want to bypass	the configure script.

       The above procedure assumes that	the soelim(1) command is somewhere  in
       the command search PATH.	 The soelim(1) command is available as part of
       the GNU Roff package.

       The above procedure also	assumes	that the $(prefix)/man/man1 and	$(pre-
       fix)/man/man5 directories already exist.	 If they do not, you will need
       to mkdir	them manually.

PRINTED	MANUALS
       This distribution contains the sources to all of	the documentation  for
       tardy.	The author used	the GNU	groff package and a postscript printer
       to prepare the documentation.  If you do	not have  this	software,  you
       will need to substitute commands	appropriate to your site.

       To  print  copies of the	README,	and BUILDING files, the	following com-
       mands may be used
	      %	groff -t -man etc/*.man	| lpr
	      %
       This will produce about 4 pages.	 The "-t" flag means  preprocess  with
       tbl(1).

       To print	copies of the manual entry, the	following commands may be used
	      %	cd man1
	      %	groff -s -t -man *.1 | lpr
	      %	cd ..
	      %
       This  will  produce about 3 pages.  The "-s" flag means preprocess with
       soelim(1), and the "-t" flag means preprocess with tbl(1).

GETTING	HELP
       If you need assistance with the tardy program, please do	 not  hesitate
       to contact the author at
	      Peter Miller <pmiller@opensource.org.au>
       Any and all feedback is welcome.

       When reporting problems,	please include the version number given	by the
	      %	tardy -version
	      tardy version a.b.cccc
	      ...
	      %
       command.
