Installing GFF is straightforward. Follow the rules for your platform, as described in the following sections.
In the descriptions that follow, wherever you see a reference to the drive D:, substitute the drive letter of the CD-ROM drive on your system containing GFF.
If you do not have Spyglass Enhanced Mosaic version 2.11 or later installed on your system, begin by installing it. Run:
To install GFF under Windows 95 or Windows NT, run the setup program:
To install GFF under Windows 3.1, run the setup program:
Installing GFF will create an O'Reilly Online Books program group; select the GFF icon within that group to start GFF.
If you do not have Spyglass Enhanced Mosaic version 2.11 or later installed on your system, begin by installing it. Double-click the self-extracting archive icon in the Spyglas Enhanced Mosaic folder in the Mac folder on the CD-ROM.
On the Macintosh, you can run GFF directly from the CD-ROM. Simply double-click the GFF icon in the Mac folder on the CD-ROM.
If you want to install GFF on your hard drive, simply drag the GFF and GFF Init icons into a folder on your hard disk. GFF and GFF Init must remain in the same folder.
In the descriptions that follow, the GFF CD-ROM is assumed to be mounted on /cdrom. If you have mounted it somewhere else, subsitute its real mount point everywhere you see /cdrom.
Many different UNIX implementations are stored on the CD-ROM; find yours in a subdirectory under /cdrom/unix. For example, if you are on a SunOS 4.x machine, the subdirectory is /cdrom/unix/sunos. For a complete list of the UNIX platforms supported, read /cdrom/unix/README.
If you do not have Spyglass Enhanced Mosaic version 2.11 or later installed on your system, begin by installing it. Unpack the distribution in the mosaic directory in the directory for your platform and follow the instructions from Spyglass.
To complete the installation of GFF, copy the gff and gffx programs from the CD-ROM into /usr/local/bin on your system. Copy gff.ini into /usr/local/lib.
 If you prefer, you may install the files in another directory; /usr/local/bin is merely a suggestion. The same is true of /usr/local/lib in the following sentence.
Look at gff and gff.ini. Make sure that the default values and configuration options in these files match the installation directories and CD-ROM mount point that you actually selected.
