rt2mei - Installation for Linux
Before You Install
If you have PHP 4.3.5 or greater installed then you can move straight to the next section.

Install And Run rt2mei
Read the FAQ below.
Unzip the downloaded file to /usr/home/rt2mei (if you choose a different directory then substitute that in these instructions).

At a shell prompt type the following:

Can I use PHP 4?
Yes, rt2mei will work with PHP 4.3.5 or greater.
Can I install rt2mei in a different directory to the one mentioned above?
Yes, of course you can.
Can the MyStuff.mei and rt2mei.mcl files be written to a different folder?
Yes, of course. Just add -o <path to folder> on the end of the line that invokes the script in the batch file. For example:

Remember to put the '--' before any options.
