2 Installation

See Supported Platforms, for information on portability or requirements. See TFM’s homepage for tarballs, Git repository and online documentation. TFM is also available via Quicklisp.

In order to install and load the bare Lisp library, unpack it somewhere in the ASDF 3 source registry and type this at the REPL:

(asdf:load-system :net.didierverna.tfm)

In addition to the bare Lisp library, the TFM distribution offers documentation in the form of 2 different manuals: the User Manual (you are reading it) and the (reference)Reference Manual. If you want to compile the manuals by yourself, please follow the instructions below.

  1. Edit make/config.make to your specific needs.
  2. Switch to the doc/ subdirectory and type make. By default, the documentation is built in info, PDF and HTML formats. If you want other formats (DVI and PostScript are available), type make all-formats. You can also type individually make dvi and/or make ps in order to get the corresponding format.
  3. Type make install to install the documentation. If you have compiled the documentation in DVI and PostScript format, those will be installed as well.

Note that if Declt is not installed on your system, the reference manual won’t be generated.

Type make uninstall to uninstall the library.
