To install oCaml go to:
Grab the appropriate disc image. If you are running on a PPC machine
If you are running on an Intel machine try:
Open the package and run the installer. This should put ocaml in the
canonical location. Then, and only then, you can install HeVeA.
I am not sure of your familiarity with the command line, given your
question about make and sudo make install, so I may be giving much
too detailed instructions. If that is the case, please forgive the
1) open a terminal window
2) cd to the directory that contains the download
3) gnutar -xvzf hevea-1.10.tar.gz (this will unpack the hevea source
4) cd hevea-1.10
6) wait for it to finish
7) sudo make install (you must invoke sudo as you will be putting
things where only root is allowed to put things and sudo is a pseudo
root (temporary) user)
8) when it is done you should have a working installation of hevea
9) type which hevea to find out where it is.. (it should be in /usr/
local/bin make sure /usr/local/bin is in your path)
