Gentle runs on various platforms, including Unix, DOS, and Windows 95. For Unix systems, Gentle is distributed as a compressed tar file gentle-97.tar.gz . To unpack the system, type


   gunzip gentle-97.tar.gz
   tar -xvf gentle-97.tar
This creates a directory gentle-97 with subdirectories gentle, lib, reflex, and examples.

Go to directory gentle and type


   build
This creates the executable program gentle, the Gentle compiler, as well as the object file grts.o, the Gentle run time system.

Go to directory lib and type


   build
This compiles the modules of the user library.

Go to directory reflex and type


   build
This creates the executable program reflex, a generator for Lex specifications.

To test the installation, go to directory examples/calc and type


   build
This creates a simple desk calculator.
