Installation/Configuration

V4.8.x

Assume a parent directory, $DST. Then put some definitions in some central startup script, for example:
   export MC_HOME=$DST/mc-4.8.x
   export MC_DATADIR=$MC_HOME/etc/mc
          # further definitions might be, no clue what for:
   export MC_TMPDIR=...         
   export MC_KEYMAP=...         
   export MC_SID=...         
   export MC_LOG_ENABLE=...         
   export MC_LOG_FILE=...         
   export MC_SKIN=...         
   export MC_COLOR_TABLE=...         

V4.6.x

Assume a parent directory, $DST. Then, for example:
   cd     $DST           
   gunzip -c /d/bio/biodev/HPUX/PA/mc-4.6.0-HP-UX.tar.gz | tar -xvf -
   export MC_DATADIR=$DST/mc-4.6.0-HP-UX/share/mc  # put this in some central startup script
