To run this program, you first need to compile it. The source code is written entirely in 'C' using only the X11 windowing facility: no external graphics or widget libraries are necessary. This program may be compiled from the supplied source code and run on any Unix-derived operating system such as System V, BSD or Linux.
Create a new directory in a convenient place. Download the file nav_short.zip. Move it to your new directory. Unzip the nav_short.zip file. The zip file contains the source code nav.c plus the routes data files. Open nav.c in a text editor. I prefer gedit because of its good source highlighting. Open a terminal. Do a 'cd' to your new directory. The compiling and running instructions are near the beginning of the source listing. Parent Page.
