fly: Download & Installation
fly source code is available in the following formats:
Source code is available for MMS (Module Management System) on VMS and OpenVMS:
Precompiled binaries are available for some operating systems:
HP/UX binaries are available from the HP/UX Porting and Archive Centre at <URL:http://hpux.csc.liv.ac.uk/>. Search for "fly" and look under the X11/Graphics section.
Because some users have reported difficulties in retrieving fly by ftp, due to slow internet links, I have created an autoresponse system where the fly distribution can be mailed to you.
To obtain fly via email, send a message to
firstname.lastname@example.org with no subject, and the
following line (exactly) in the body
of the message:
where <filename> is one of the filenames above (e.g. fly-1.6.5.tar.gz, fly-1.6.5.exe, fly-1.6.5.SunOS-5.4-sun4d.tar.gz etc.)
Note: Do NOT send HTML mail to this address. Heck, don't send HTML mail to any address! But I digress. If you do send HTML mail, you'll just have to do it again the right way.
If you have obtained fly-n.tar.Z or fly-n.tar.gz, enter the following commands at the unix prompt:
If you have obtained the NT/Win95 zip file, fly-n.WinNT.zip, enter the following command at the DOS prompt:
Windows users can also use WinZip to extract the files with all the compression formats used on this page including zip, tar, and gz.
If you have obtained the NT/Win95 binary, fly-n.exe, no installation is necessary.
If you obtained one of the precompiled binaries, enter the following commands:
If you are attempting to compile from source and don't have gcc, you
will get an error message along the lines of 'gcc: command not
found' and make will exit. Just change the lines in the Makefile
and the Makefile in the gd1.2 directory that read:
CC = gcc
CC = cc
and it should work. If it still doesn't compile, try one of the pre-compiled binaries, or contact me.
