Getting started with schily
To install and use the aforementioned command-line programs in your GNU/Linux distribution, you must first download the latest version from Softpedia, save the gzipped source archive somewhere on your computer and extract it using your favorite archive manager tool.
Open a terminal emulator app, go to the location of the extracted archive files with the ‘cd’ command (e.g. cd /home/softpedia/schily-2014-09-17), and type the ‘./configure’ command to see the available options for compiling the included tools.
The preferred make program is ‘smake’, but you can also use the universal ‘make’ command, as well as the ‘gmake’ command if you want to compile all the programs on selected operating systems.
The entire compilation process will take some time, as there are numerous command-line application available in the project. After a successful compilation, you can install them all by executing the ‘make install’ as root or ‘sudo make install’ command as a user with root privileges.
