It's recommended to leave the whole hsc directory in one piece. Therefor extract the archive somewhere to your hard disk, for example to work:hsc.You now have to add this directory to your workbench search path. This can be performed adding a line like the one you can find below to your user-startup
Path work:hsc ADDAfter rebooting, you can open a shell and type in ``hsc help'', and hsc should come up with a short information message.
For a minimum installation, only hsc and hsc.prefs are required. If you want to utilize the project management capabilities of hsc, also hscdepp and hscpitt are needed.
Copy the binaries to somewhere in your workbench search path (for example, to c:) and hsc.prefs anywhere else and set HSCPATH according to this.
All binaries should already have the the pure bit set. If not, you can do this by entering
protect hsc/hsc add p protect hsc/hscdepp add p protect hsc/hscpitt add p
in a shell.
To make the binaries resident on every startup, add the lines
resident hsc resident hscdepp resident hscpitt
to the user-startup.
Important: For resident programs,
PROGDIR: is not defined. You will have to take care that
hsc is able to find hsc.prefs before it tries to scan
PROGDIR: for it. This can be done by by setting the
environment variable HSCPATH or by placing hsc.prefs in the
current directory for every project. Otherwise you will notice an
annoying requester, which will ask you to ``insert volume
PROGDIR: into any drive''.
Maybe you will have to compile the sources yourself. Refer to the chapter about the Source Code for details.
For installation, the first few lines of this Makefile are
interesting for you. They define two symbols you might want to change.
INSTALL specifies the install program to be
used. Normally the default should be fine.
An exception of this is when you want to compile for AmigaOS/ixemul. In
this case you maybe want to set
otherwise sys:c/install will be used, which does a
completely different job - it makes a disk bootable.
The default for
INSTDIR will attempt to to copy the
binaries to /usr/bin/ and some other data to
/usr/lib/. This will only work if you have write access
to these directories.
INSTDIR = $(HOME)/Make sure that you also have created $HOME/bin/ and $HOME/lib/ before starting the installation process. Or maybe you prefer
INSTDIR = /usr/localbecause of philosophical reasons I never really understood. In any case, a
make installshould copy all files to the desired locations.
