============================

Prerequisites

- get and install curl

Installing this package
=======================

or fetch it via FTP at

ftp://ftp.math.tu-berlin.de/pub/algebra/Kant/contrib/gap/

There are two ways of installing the package.  If you have permission
to add files to the installation of GAP 4 on your system you may
install the qaos-gap package into the pkg/ subdirectory of the GAP
installation tree.

--  Installation in the GAP 4 pkg subdirectory on a Unix system.

We assume that the archive file qaos-gap.tar.bz2 or qaos-gap.tar is
present in pkg and that the current directory is pkg.  All that needs
to be done is to unpack the archive.

bash> tar xjf qaos.tar.bz2       # for the gzipped tar-archive
bash> gap4
[... startup messages ...]
true
gap>

--  Installation in a private directory

We assume that we are in a directory called    which also
contains the archive file of the package.

bash> mkdir pkg
bash> cd pkg/
bash> tar xjf ../qaos.tar.bz2

When you start GAP 4 you have to use the option -l in the
following manner:

gap4 -l ";"

Note the semicolon!  It is imortant to have it there.  The effect
is that the directory  is appended to the list of
directories which GAP searches for input data.  Note that you do
not say /pkg.
