Readme for darcs-2.5.2

[back to package description]
Darcs
=====
This is the source tree for darcs, a distributed version control system
written in Haskell.

For more information, visit the darcs web site:

   http://www.darcs.net


Compilation and Installation
============================

Building Darcs requires GHC, version 6.10.3 or higher. It also requires the
Cabal package, version 1.6 or higher.  The cabal-install package is also
recommended.

If you have the "cabal-install" package on your system (that is, there is a
"cabal" executable in your path), you can use the following command to create
an executable in ~/.cabal/bin/darcs (this will also automatically fetch and
build dependencies from the Hackage server).

    $ cabal update
    $ cabal install

Otherwise, if you have the "cabal" package but not the "cabal-install"
package, run the following:

    $ runghc Setup configure
    $ runghc Setup build
    $ sudo runghc Setup install

You may also omit the last step and copy the darcs executable (found in
dist/build/darcs/darcs) to a location of your choosing.

More detailed instructions can be found at
<http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Cabal/How_to_install_a_Cabal_package>
including instructions on obtaining a copy of cabal-install.

Please also note that the cabal-based build by default requires the cURL
library (and development headers). If, for some reason, you cannot provide
cURL, please pass "-f-curl" to the configure step above.

tests please read tests/README.test_maintainers.txt.

Happy hacking!
