method 1

- edit install.sh to change DEST_HOME
- ./install.sh : to install
Remark : you must be "root" to install 7za in the directory "/usr/local"

method 2

- 7za is a stand-alone program, you can put this program where you want. example : cp bin/7za /usr/local/bin/7za

- 7z needs its plugins. You must copy the file 7z and the two directories Formats and Codecs in the same destination directory.

- if you want to be able to create SFX archive, copy bin/7zCon.sfx to the directory where 7za or 7z can be found.
