1.2 Installing and uninstalling

Minimum system requirements for Irie Pascal (FreeBSD Edition)

Installing Irie Pascal (FreeBSD Edition)

Irie Pascal is distributed as a compressed archive (i.e. ipf-eval.tar.gz or ipf-260.tar.gz).

The suggested installation procedure is as follows:

  1. Log in 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 and extract the files, using:

     tar zxf ipf-eval.tar.gz


     tar zxf ipf-260.tar.gz
  5. Either add the directory you created previously to the path or copy the executables (i.e. ipc and ivm or ivmdb) into one of the directories (e.g. /usr/local/bin) in the path.

Uninstalling Irie Pascal (FreeBSD Edition)

Irie Pascal (FreeBSD 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 and remove any additions you made to the path while installing Irie Pascal.
