To install NZMATH on your computer, you must have Python 2.5 or better. If you don't have a copy of Python, please install it first. Python is available from .

The next step is to expand the NZMATH-1.1.0.tar.gz. The way to do it depends on your operating system. On the systems with recent GNU tar, you can do it with a single command:

% tar xf NZMATH-1.1.0.tar.gz

where, % is the command line prompt. Or with standard tar, you can do it as:

% gzip -cd NZMATH-1.1.0.tar.gz | tar xf -

Then, you have a child directory named NZMATH-1.1.0.

The third step is the last step, to install NZMATH to the standard python path. Usually, this means to write files to somewhere under /usr/lib or /usr/local/lib, and thus you have to have appropriate write permission. Typically, do as the following:

% cd NZMATH-1.1.0
% su
# python install
