plan

X/motif based schedule planner. Includes additional executables netplan, pland

Compilation

Straightforward.
Requires yacc (or bison) and lex (or flex).
Steps are described from unpacking the source to packaging the created binaries:
  1. Unpack the sources, e.g.:
       gunzip -c plan-1.10.1.tar.gz | tar -xvf -
       cd plan-1.10.1
    
  2. Follow the instructions in the README:
       cd src
       ./configure
    
    and answer the questions. In most cases just use the defaults. If the target directory should be different, e.g. a temporary one, use:
    installation directory for plan executable? [/usr/local/bin]
    /tmp/plan-1.10.1/bin
    installation directory for system executables (netplan)? [/usr/local/bin]
    /tmp/plan-1.10.1/bin
    installation directory for support executables and files? [/usr/local/lib]
    /tmp/plan-1.10.1/lib
    installation directory for online help file? [/usr/local/lib]
    /tmp/plan-1.10.1/lib
    installation directory for netplan's netplan.dir directory? [/usr/local/lib]
    /tmp/plan-1.10.1/lib
    
    installation directory prefix for nroff man pages? [/usr/local/man/man]
    /tmp/plan-1.10.1/man/man
    installation directory for cat man pages (or NONE)? [/usr/catman/local/cat]
    /tmp/plan-1.10.1/man/cat
    
  3. One may modify the created Makefile. In the install section I found useful to add the creation of the man target directories and to replace the copying of holiday files:
    	mkdir -p $(DESTDIR)$(MAN)1 
    	mkdir -p $(DESTDIR)$(MAN)4
    	mkdir -p $(DESTDIR)$(CATMAN)1 
    	mkdir -p $(DESTDIR)$(CATMAN)4
    	
    	-cp ../holiday/holiday_$(HOLIDAY) $(DESTDIR)$(LIB)
    
  4. Then
       make clean
       make 
       make install
    
  5. Use
       cp -r -p /tmp/plan-1.10.1 $FINALDESTINATION 
    
    or similar to copy stuff into the final destination.
  6. Create an the export package, if desired, e.g.:
       cd $FINALDESTINATION/plan-1.10.1
       tar -cvf - * | compress > /d/bio/biodev/DUX/ALPHA/51/plan-1.10.1.tar.Z
