Reva: Installation

First-time installation:

  1. Download the latest version of Reva, either Stable or Development (or any other version you want)
  2. Unzip it -- notice there is now a directory called ''Reva-nnn'', where 'nnn' is the checkin number.
  3. Set your PATH to point to the Reva installation.
  4. Linux users: add the Reva 'bin' directory to your 'LD_LIBRARY_PATH' environment variable. Mac OS/X users: do that for 'DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH'
  5. Read the README, following the directions for installation carefully
  6. Work through Reva's Wiki tutorial for practice with Forth
  7. Have a look at some of the code from the examples folder (e.g. beer.f)

Don't forget: you can always ask questions in the Reva discussion mailing list!
