SISYPHOS is written in ANSI-C and should run on every UNIX system (and some non-UNIX systems) that provides an ANSI-C Compiler, e.g., the GNU C compiler. SISYPHOS has been ported to IBM RS6000 running AIX 3.2, HP9000 7xx running HP-UX 8.0/9.0, PC 386/486 running Linux, PC 386/486 running DOS or OS/2 with emx and ATARI ST/TT running TOS.
In the example we will assume that you, as user
gap, are installing the
SISYPHOS package for use by several users on a network of two
tiffy, and a 486 PC, called
We assume that GAP is also installed on these machines following the
instructions given in Installation of GAP for UNIX.
Note that certain parts of the output in the examples should only be taken as rough outline, especially file sizes and file dates are not to be taken literally.
First of all you have to get the file
sisyphos.zoo (see Getting GAP).
Then you must locate the GAP directories containing

Unpack the package using
unzoo (see Installation of GAP for UNIX).
Note that you must be in the directory containing
gap3r4p0 to unpack
the files. After you have unpacked the source you may remove the

Switch into the directory
src/. It contains the makefile for SISYPHOS.
gap@tiffy:../src > make usage: 'make <target>' where target is one of 'hp700-hpux-gcc2' for HP 9000/7xx under HP-UX with GNU cc 2 'hp700-hpux-cc' for HP 9000/7xx under HP-UX with cc 'hp700-hpux-cci' for HP 9000/7xx under HP-UX with cc - generate version for profile dependent optimization 'hp700-hpux-ccp' for HP 9000/7xx under HP-UX with cc - relink with profile dependent optimization 'ibm6000-aix-cc' for IBM RS/6000 under AIX with cc 'ibmpc-linux-gcc2' for IBM PCs under Linux with GNU cc 2 'ibmpc-emx-gcc2' for IBM PCs under DOS or OS/2 2.0 with emx 'generic-unix-gcc2' for other UNIX machines with GNU cc 2 this should work on most machines
Select the target you need. In our case we first
compile the DECstation version. We assume that the command to start
gap@tiffy:../src > make generic-unix-gcc2 # you will see a lot of messages and maybe a few warnings
You should test the standalone now. The following command should run without any comment. This will work, however, only for UNIX machines.
gap@tiffy:../src > testsis
The executables will be collected in the
/bin directory, so we move that
for the DECstation there.
gap@tiffy:../src > mv sis ../bin/sis.ds
Now repeat the compilation for the PC. Do not forget to clean up.
gap@tiffy:../src > rlogin waldorf gap@waldorf:~ > cd gap3r4p0/pkg/sisyphos/src gap@waldorf:../src > make clean gap@waldorf:../src > make generic-unix-gcc2 # you will see a lot of messages and maybe a few warnings
Test the executable (under UNIX only), and move it to the right place.
gap@waldorf:../src > testsis gap@waldorf:../src > mv sis ../bin/sis.386bsd gap@waldorf:../src > exit gap@tiffy:../src >
Switch into the subdirectory
bin/ and create a script which will call
the correct binary for each machine.
gap@tiffy:../src > cd .. gap@tiffy:../sisyphos > cat > bin/sis#
!/bin/csh switch ( `hostname` ) case 'bert': case 'tiffy': exec ~gap/3.2/pkg/sisyphos/bin/sis.ds $* ; breaksw ; case 'waldorf': exec ~gap/3.2/pkg/sisyphos/bin/sis.386bsd $* ; breaksw ; default: echo "sis: sorry, no executable exists for this machine" ; breaksw ; endswctr-
