If your C compiler is not called gcc, try editing the line
in src/Makefile accordingly,
e.g. replace gcc by cc.
In any case, you may get many compiler warnings. These can be safely ignored.
The executable file is now called: res2image. Let us assume
this is in directory: /my_directory
Choose a directory mentioned in the
value of the PATH variable. Alternatively, create some directory,
and add it to the PATH variable.
Let us assume this directory is called: /usr/bin
The value of the PATH variable can be determined by: echo $PATH
Execute: cd /usr/bin
Using any editor, create a file (shell script)
that is also called res2image, which contains just one line:
Execute: chmod +x res2image
possible problems on Mac OS X (also Arch Linux)
If make fresh fails, there are two possible cures:
Maybe makedepend is installed but not included in the value of the PATH
variable, and not in /usr/X11R6/bin.
If this applies, try to find it elsewhere (or if necessary download it).
Add the path to the PATH variable and try again.
Instead of make fresh, just execute: make.
This suffices if you do not intend to change the source code.
Instructions under Windows
Download and unzip. Compilation is not necessary.
As I have no access to Microsoft products, I cannot offer
further support for this version.
