Building on Linux

Please read the INSTALL file in the FriCAS distribution, which you can get via subversion as

svn co svn://svn.code.sf.net/p/fricas/code/trunk fricas

or from


Building on Windows

FriCAS also works with MinGW (see BuildOnWindows), but currently you won't get graphics nor HyperDoc (the help facility), so if you are mainly interested in "using" FriCAS, I guess Cygwin is the better bet.

For step by step instructions for downloading and building using CYGWIN see BuildOnCygwin

There is yet another alternative, which is called "andLinux".

If you encounter any difficulties, please don't hesitate to ask. We are grateful for every bit that improves the MS Windows port!

Finally, note that in the instructions we use CLISP as Common Lisp implementation. In principle, it should work with any Common Lisp with a little patching. You can find details about supported Common Lisps and required versions in the INSTALL file in the FriCAS distribution.
