Older versions can be downloaded from here.

2.2 Requirements

In order to successfully use, you need the following programs and libraries which are available on most platforms as distribution packages and thereby can be installed easily.


2.3 Compilation and installation assumes that the Perl executable lives in /usr/bin/perl - if that is not the case, use your favorite editor to modify the first line of the file accordingly.

In order to install from sources, type the following in the directory to which you downloaded the distribution:

% tar zxvf mama-perl-0.3.tar.gz
% cd mama-perl-0.3
% less README
% su
% make install

This will install in /usr/bin, the man page in /usr/share/man/man1/ and the documentation in /usr/share/doc/makeman/makeman-perl/

To install from RPM or .deb, please refer to rpm(1) or dpkg(1).
