Installation of the ARS Interpreter

  1. download `arsc.tar.gz' using the URL: http://www.aplusplus.net/app/download.html
  2. unpack `arsc.tar.gz' by keying in: 'tar -xvzf appc.tar.gz'.
  3. change to the directory `arsc'. This directory contains the precompiled version of the interpreter having the name `appc.exe'.

    If the precompiled binary runs the installation is finished, otherwise the interpreter has to be recompiled.

  5. unpack `gc6.3.tar.gz' by keying in: 'tar -xvzf gc6.3.tar.gz'.
  6. change into the directory `gc6.3'.
  7. configure the garbage collector: './configure'.
  8. compile the package: 'make'.
  9. install the garbage collector by keying in: 'make install'.
  10. change into the directory which contains the pre-compiled version of the interpreter.
  11. compile the interpreter: 'make'.
  12. test the function of the installed interpreter:
    \begin{lstlisting}[language=Scm,caption=Testing the Interpreter]{}
./arscint
ARS-EVAL-> (load ''test.ars'')
..........
ARS-EVAL-> (quit)
\end{lstlisting}
  13. save the interpreter (`arscint.exe') into the target directory.
