3.1 Installation

Installation of SICStus under UNIX is performed by an installation (Shell) script InstallSICStus, which interacts with the user to obtain options such as where to install SICStus. As of SICStus 3.9.1, the Java based SICStus Installer Tool is a graphical front-end to the installation script, which automates downloading and installation. The SICStus Installer Tool is available from the download page. Use of the SICStus Installer Tool is strictly optional but may be convenient, especially on platforms such as Mac OS X, that, by default, lack C compiler.
