Once a copy of slisp has been downloaded to your local directory, it must be configured to run on your local machine. To do this run slisp/bin/Sconfigure machine, where machine is the name of a machine defined by a file in slisp/systems. In this case and in all subsequent discussion slisp refers to the downloaded slisp directory that is in your local HOME directory.
Sconfigure will read the information in the machine file and create the appropriate HOME/lib files as outlined in the previous node. If a file for your machine does not exist create one by copying an existing one, renaming it to an appropriate name for your machine, and setting the variables appropriately. All variables must be set. Of course we can't guarantee that slisp will run on any machine, but we hope that it will be as portable as Xlisp is.
