Installation from source code

If your system have installed the getopt, SDL-devel and SDL_image libreries, you can begin the installation procedure.
The simplest way to compile this package is:
  1. `cd' to the directory containing the package's source code and type `./configure' to configure the package for your system. Running `configure' takes awhile. While running, it prints some messages telling which features it is checking for.
  2. Type `make' to compile the package.
  3. Type `make install' to install the programs and any data files and documentation.
  4. You can remove the program binaries and object files from the source code directory by typing `make clean'. To also remove the files that `configure' created (so you can compile the package for a different kind of computer), type `make distclean'.
For more details see the INSTALL file.


Additional information on the simulator can be found on how-to (in italian).
One accurate description of fick use is in the manual page, it is see (after you are installed the program) whith the command 'man fick' or on-line.


Fick was written by Danilo Abbasciano.
The author would like to thank Pietro Cenciarelli for his extensive help, fick would not have happened without he.
