12For more information, please see the "doc" directory.
13For release notes, please see "doc/releases.html".
18Ficl builds out-of-the-box on the following platforms:
19 * NetBSD, FreeBSD: use "Makefile".
20 * Linux: use "Makefile.linux", but it should work with
21 "Makefile" as well.
22 * Win32: use "ficl.dsw" / "ficl.dsp".
23To port to other platforms, we suggest you start with the generic
24"Makefile" and the "unix.c" / "unix.h" platform-specific implementation
25files. (And please--feel free to submit your portability changes!)
27(Note: Ficl used to build under RiscOS, but we broke everything
28for the 4.0 release. Please fix it and send us the diffs!)
