My name is Astrid. I am trying to install Mercury in my Linux machine but
it seems like it is not installing properly. I downloaded the package,
unzipped it and put it in my Documents. Then I open the "Install" document
to follow the steps. Using the command line I did "sh configure". It said
that I needed 2 other packages, Bisno was one of them and I install them
and it ran, then I run "make" and it worked fine, the next step was to run
"make install" and it gave me an error when it tried to process the script
"mkdir -p /usr/local/mercury-14.01/bin " so I created the bin directory
using my path, the path of my computer where the directory of mercury is
located. I typed "mkdir -p /home/astrid/Documents/mercury-14.01/bin", then
it made the directory but nothing else ran. The next step was to run "make
clean" so I did it and it ran everything. I am unsure if it install
correctly since it gave me an error in the "make install" step and I
created the directory in a different way. Then the process ended but I
created a testing file with ".m" and I don't know how to call the compiler
to test the file.

This is the first time that I use Mercury for a college project and I
appreciate your time,

Astrid Garcia
