are some known failures; see <a href="status.text">status.text</a>.
<p>Most users will not need to worry about their implementation and
operating system, as all these are supported if the needed libraries
are installed (see below). The use of CLISP, however, is not
recommended.

<li><code>git clone git://repo.or.cz/gsll.git</code></li>
<li><code>git clone git://repo.or.cz/gsd.git</code></li>
<li><code>darcs get http://www.common-lisp.net/project/cffi/darcs/cffi/</code></li>

<li><code>git clone git://gitorious.org/iolib/static-vectors.git</code></li>
<li><code>git clone git://repo.or.cz/fsbv.git</code></li>
</ul>
<p>The <a href="http://repo.or.cz/w/gsll.git"> repository web page</a>
can be used to browse or retrieve a compressed tarball (click the most
recent "snapshot" link). You will need to make a link of all
the <code>.asd</code> files in the downloaded repositories to some
directory known to ASDF. Then make sure that
the C packages <code>libgsl0-dev</code> and <code>libffi-dev</code>
(if using FSBV) are installed.
Then in Lisp, load the system:
<ul>
<li><code>(asdf:operate 'asdf:load-op :gsll)</code></li>
</ul>
<p>Use <a href="http://www.quicklisp.org/">quicklisp</a> and follow the
instructions. You will need to make sure that the libraries and
header files associated with <a href="http://www.gnu.org/software/gsl/">GNU Scientific Library
(GSL)</a> and <a href="http://sourceware.org/libffi/">libffi</a> are
installed; your distribution may name these <code>libgsl0-dev</code>
and <code>libffi-dev</code>. Once they are installed and you have
loaded the quicklisp file:
<pre>
(ql:quickload "gsll-tests")</pre>
<p>To test your installation:
<pre>
(in-package :gsl)
(lisp-unit:run-tests)</pre>
<p>The result should look something like:
<pre>
ABSOLUTE-DEVIATION: 1 assertions passed, 0 failed.
ABSOLUTE-SUM: 4 assertions passed, 0 failed.
AIRY: 73 assertions passed, 0 failed.</pre>
<p>... (many lines deleted) ...

WEIBULL: 60 assertions passed, 0 failed.
ZETA: 6 assertions passed, 0 failed.
TOTAL: 4019 assertions passed, 1 failed, 0 execution errors.</pre>
