Installing utfcheck

To install the utfcheck package on a system with a Unix-style command line interface (GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, Cygwin, etc.), type these commands in a terminal window:

     make check
     make install
     make clean

The "make check" command will run tests using sample text files that are in the "test" directory.

The "make install" command might need to be run as "sudo make install" on your system. By default, the utfcheck program will be installed in "/usr/local/bin" and the man (manual) page will be installed in "/usr/local/share/man/man1".
