    13 The Lampos tool requires [http://www.tcl.tk Tcl] version 8 and [http://www.perl.org perl].  Download the Lampos distribution and put this in your home directory.

     15{{{ 
     16#! /bin/sh 
     17exec /usr/bin/wish -f /home/umui/lamposvn4.2/lampos.tcl 
     18}}}

    15 Type: 
    16 {{{  
    17 tar - xvf lampos.tar 
    18 }}} 
    19 This will create a directory called `lampos` in your home directory.  Next, add the following line to your .kshrc file: 
    20 {{{ 
    21 alias lampos='$HOME/lampos/lampos' 
    22 }}}
