31     home directory and add:
32        setenv KPP_HOME $HOME/kpp
33        set path=( $path $HOME/kpp/bin )
34     Execute 'source .cshrc' (or 'source .tcshrc') to make sure these
35     changes are in effect.
36
37   - with bash shell edit the file .bashrc in your home directory and add:
38        export KPP_HOME=$HOME/kpp
39        export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/kpp/bin

42        Makefile.defs
43   and follow the instructions included to specify the compiler,
44   the location of the FLEX library, etc.
