1.2 Installing and uninstalling

Minimum system requirements for Irie Pascal (Solaris/Sparc Edition)

Installing Irie Pascal (Solaris/Sparc Edition)

Irie Pascal is distributed as a compressed archive (i.e. ips-eval.sparc.tar.Z or ips-260.sparc.tar.Z).

The suggested installation procedure is as follows:

  1. Log in to Solaris/Sparc as root or become root using su.
  2. Create a directory to store Irie Pascal (e.g. /usr/local/irie).
  3. Copy the archive into this directory.
  4.  Uncompress the archive, using:

     uncompress ips-eval.sparc.tar.Z


     uncompress ips-260.sparc.tar.Z
  5. Extract the files, using:

     tar xf ips-eval.sparc.tar


     tar xf ips-260.sparc.tar
  6. Either add the directory you created previously to the path or copy the executables (i.e. ipc, ivm or ivmdb) into one of the directories (e.g. /usr/local/bin) in the path.
  7. If you have MySQL installed and you want to use it with Irie Pascal then make sure that the directory containing the MySQL dynamic client libraries (i.e. has been added to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable.

Uninstalling Irie Pascal (Solaris/Sparc Edition)

Irie Pascal (Solaris/Sparc Edition) does not make any behind the scenes modifications to your system or install any files on your hard disk, so uninstalling is very simple, just erase the files.
