Welcome the the iTools Install program!

This is the self-extracting iTools installation and setup program. Because of security reasons, this program will *NOT* run under the root account.

Checking account...bill

Checking home directory.../home/itools

If you need to install binaries for more than one operating system, you should exit this program, download the additional binaries (files of the form: ic.[d]bin. .v1.tgz or ic.[d]bin. .v1.exe) from our home page and rerun this program with the '-expert' switch on the command line. The production binaries may be found at

http://www.internetcad.com/pub/releases/v1.

and the latest binaries may be found at

http://www.internetcad.com/cgi-bin/beta.

If you are having problems extracting the programs, try the safe mode which unzips and untars the archive in two steps. To use the safe mode, use the '-safe' switch on the command line. The program will try to recommend when to use the '-safe' option.

iTools version 1.4.0 has already been installed.
Reply 'no' to resume the installation of iTools from previous point.
Do you wish to reinstall iTools in the current directory? (default no) (You should select no by hitting return here).

In order to execute iTools, the user must first set the iTools environment variables ICDIR, ICOS, and LD_LIBRARY_PATH (SHLIB_PATH on HP Unix). In addition, the user must set up appropriate links if the Netscape plugin is to work correctly. ICDIR is the pathname of the iTools root directory. ICOS is the name of the operating system. The name of the operating system can be determined by executing the icuname command in the ./itools.xxx/bin directory. LD_LIBRARY_PATH describes the search path for dynamically linked libraries. All of these variables and the Netscape plugin setup can be set to the appropriate values by typing 'source .icrc ' in a C-shell. For Bourne and Korn shell users type

         .    ./.icrc .sh 
  

or
         .    ./.icrc .ksh 
  

respectively.

Note: means carriage-return.

Do you wish to continue the installation and source the iTools initialization file? (default yes) (You should hit return here).

   Initializing the iTools environment variables...
   ICDIR has been set to /home/itools/itools.1.4.0
   ICOS has been set to SunOS5
   DISPLAY has been set to :0
   LD_LIBRARY_PATH has been set to:

   and
     /home/itools/itools.1.4.0/bin/SunOS5
      
   Netscape plugin enabled for SunOS5.
