PACKAGING   [plain text]

Packaging hints for binary package distributors

Although the source of the bison package comes as a single package,
in distributions of binary packages the installed files should
be split into two packages:

        Contents: Runtime libraries and programs.
        Audience: Anyone who wants to run internationalized programs
                  that contain Bison-generated parsers.

        Contents: Tools and documentation for developers that use Bison.
        Audience: Anyone who wants to develop programs that use parsers.
        Dependencies: requires bison-runtime.

The 'bison-runtime' binary package is much smaller than the 'bison'
binary package.  It should be included in any distribution that
contains localized programs that use the diagnostics contained in
Bison-generated parsers.

If you want to install both packages at the same time, you simply do
at the toplevel directory:

      make install

After installation, the file


belongs to the bison-runtime package; all other installed files belong
to the bison package.
