This document was written to guide you to install voc on various platforms.

we assume that you know at least how to work with the command line interface :)


on Debian GNU/Linux

on Debian GNU/Linux you might need to install libc6-dev package, usually by running

apt-get install libc6-dev

on RHEL/Fedora

on Fedora and other RHEL-like systems, you might need to install glibc-devel and glibc-static packages, usually by running

yum install glibc-devel glibc-static

Compiling from sources

We will need GCC, GNU build utilities (gnu make, ldconfig, etc) and git.

first, use git to clone the online repository

git clone

then cd into the voc directory that we just cloned

cd voc

If you are on 32bit intel or amd PC, and you work under GNU/Linux then run

make -f makefile.linux.gcc.x86

If you are on an ARM Linux computer, like Raspberry Pi or Nokia N900, run

make -f makefile.linux.gcc.armv6j_hardfp

for a PowerPC run

make -f makefile.linux.gcc.powerpc

and finally, on 64bit computers just run



make -f makefile.linux.gcc.x86_64

because it's the same file.

on Mac with OSX use

make -f makefile.darwin.clang.x86_64

on FreeBSD or OpenBSD use gmake

gmake -f makefile.openbsd.gcc.x86_64

don't get scared if you see errors, if everything went well, usually the last two lines on the console would be

gcc -shared -o *.o
echo ""/opt"/voc-1.1/lib" > 05vishap.conf

now, we need to install the compiler by running

sudo make install

or if you are on mac, then

sudo make -f makefile.darwin.clang.x86_64 install

on 32bit Linux

sudo make -f makefile.linux.gcc.x86 install

on OpenBSD

sudo gmake -f makefile.openbsd.gcc.x86_64


next we will need to add the voc tools (voc, showdef, ocat) to our shell's path, assuming that you run GNU Bash (check by running echo $SHELL and you should get /bin/bash) just add these two lines to your .bashrc file

export PATH

Testing the compiler

Now that we have voc installed, let's test it!

first, enter this using your favorite text editor and save it as Hello.Mod


IMPORT Console;

	Console.String("Hello, User!");
END Hello.

then run

voc -m Hello.Mod

you will see voc live in action :) to run our program, run


and we'll see

Hello, User!
