tar xfvz wfdb.tar.gzThis creates a directory with a name of the form wfdb-10.m.n.
cd wfdb-10.m.n ./configure make installThe make command requires root permissions, and installs the package in subdirectories of /usr. If you do not have root permissions, you may install the package in any writable directory by adding an appropriate option to the make command above:
make install WFDBROOT=/path/to/another/directoryNote that in this case you will need to add WFDBROOT/bin to your PATH, and WFDBROOT/lib to your LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
make checkThis step compiles a short program that exercises the WFDB library, prints a summary of test results, and prompts you to press <Enter>. After you have done so, the WFDB applications are tested. The tests are very short (typically less than a second each), except that the last one (xform using NETFILES) may take up to a minute if you have a slow or inoperative Internet connection. If any application test fails, its output can be found in the checkpkg subdirectory of the WFDB source tree; compare this output with the files of the same names that can be found in the checkpkg/expected subdirectory.
