How to make the Improv library for Linux

  1. download the distribution file for Improv (currently improv-2.2.6.tar.gz),

  2. unpack the GNU compressed tar file for Improv by typing the command
       tar xvzf improv-2.2.6.tar.gz 
  3. finally, type the command
       make library
    inside of the improv directory. This will compile the source files and make the static library file improv/lib/libimprov.a

You can now compile the example programs and your own programs using the Improv library. See the How to for compiling programs using the Improv library.

If you are interested, here is the makefile for compiling the Improv library: Makefile.library.
