National Optical Astronomy Observatories1
Revised March 1998
This document describes how to install or update IRAF on an SGI IRIX 6.2 workstation or server, or update and existing installation. Both stand-alone and networked configurations are described. Only those issues which one must understand to install IRIX/IRAF are discussed here; a companion document, the Unix IRAF Site Manager's Guide, deals with other issues such as interfacing new devices, configuring the IRAF networking system, adding layered software, and so on.
A PostScript version and a PDF version of this Installation Guide is available from the IRAF FTP archives.
