ERC may be compiled and installed on your machine.
This section may be skipped if you are using the version of ERC that comes with Emacs.
This is an optional step, since Emacs Lisp source code does not necessarily have to be byte-compiled. It will yield a speed increase, though.
A working copy of Emacs or XEmacs is needed in order to compile ERC. By
default, the program that is installed with the name
will be used.
If you want to use the
xemacs binary to perform the
compilation, you would need to edit `Makefile' in the top-level
directory as follows. You can put either a full path to an Emacs or
XEmacs binary or just the command name, as long as it is in the
EMACS = xemacs SITEFLAG = -no-site-file
make should compile the ERC source files in the
ERC may be installed into your file hierarchy by doing the following.
Edit the `Makefile' file so that
ELISPDIR points to where you
want the source and compiled ERC files to be installed and
INFODIR indicates where to put the ERC manual. Of course, you
will want to edit
SITEFLAG as shown in the
Compilation section if you are using XEmacs.
If you are installing ERC on a Debian system, you might want to change
the value of
INSTALLINFO as specified in `Makefile'.
make as a normal user.
make install as the root user if you have chosen installation
locations that require this.
