Njudge is an automated judge for Diplomacy games, based on Ken Lowe software.


1. Create a system user account (i.e. 'judge') and its home directory
(i.e. /home/judge) It is recommended to lock the password for this
account as you should never need to login as this user.

2. `cd' to the directory containing the package's source code and type
`./configure' to configure the package for your system. If you're
using `csh' on an old version of System V, you might need to type
`sh ./configure' instead to prevent `csh' from trying to execute
`configure' itself.

By default it will set up the judge in /home/judge as user judge with
an email address of judge@localhost and sendmail in /usr/sbin.
If you chose a different user and directory in step 1, or if judge
email should come from a different domain, you can give the configure
script flags to override the defaults. The flags are:


for example to set up the judge in /home/jaldhar/dip as user
jaldhar and email judge@braincells.com and sendmail in /usr/ucb, you
would do:

./configure --with-dir=/home/jaldhar/dip --with-user=jaldhar --with-domain=braincells.com --with-sendmail=/usr/ucb

There are many other flags you can give (type './configure --help'
for a full list) but these are the main ones you're likely to use.

Running `configure' takes awhile. While running, it prints some
messages telling which features it is checking for.

3. Type `make' to compile the package.

4. If this is a new install:

Type `make install' to install the programs, any data files and
documentation. You will have to edit a few configuration files
before the judge will become operation.

If this is an upgrade from an older version;

Type 'make upgrade' to install the new programs only.

*Note* compiled programs will not be stripped of debug and other extra
information. If you want to make compiled programs a little smaller,
you can type 'make install-strip' or 'make upgrade-strip' instead. This
may give a few harmless errors (when it tries to strip scripts) but you
can ignore them.

If you just want to rebuild the map files (because e.g. you added a new
variant,) type 'make remap'.

5. You can remove the program binaries and object files from the
source code directory by typing `make clean'. To also remove the
files that `configure' created (so you can compile the package for
a different kind of computer), type `make distclean'.
