 +=====Installing EPIC=====
 +
 +EPIC should be able to compile and run on almost any modern UNIX.  Unpack the downloaded source, change into the EPIC source directory then run ''​configure'':​
 +
 +  ./configure
 +
 +By default, ''​configure''​ sets up the software to be installed to ''/​usr/​local''​. If this is not the case for you (ie, you are //not// the superuser compiling for the entire system) then you can run ''​configure''​ with the ''​--prefix=/​path/​to/​somewhere''​ option, for example:
 +
 +  ./configure --prefix=/​usr/​home/​jnelson
 +  ​
 +To compile EPIC, in the main source directory type:
 +
 +  make
 +
 +This will compile the ''​epic''​ (for EPIC4) or ''​epic5''​ (for EPIC5) and ''​wserv''​ programs. Once the compilation has completed successfully,​ you can install them:
 +
 +  make install
 +  ​
 +This will install all the binaries, scripts, man pages, and help files into the installation path.
 +
 +=====You really need a script pack to use EPIC=====
 +Without a script pack, EPIC is a faithful replacement for ircII. ​ This won't
 +make you happy. ​ [[Scripts|You need to use a script pack]]. A script pack 
 +creates a different (better) user experience that will make you happy.  ​
 +Every script pack is 
 +different, because every user is different. ​ Try a few and see what you like!  ​
 +Most scripts are very tweakable to suit your needs.
