How To Install A New C Library on Linux
First of all sorry for the newbie question, but here we go:
I am trying to install the GMP (GNU Multiple Precision Arithmetic) Library on my Ubuntu machine.
I downloaded the .tar.bz2 file, and extracted it. Now I have a folder called gmp-4.3.2 with all the files of the library.
What should I do now to install the library? I know how to use it once it's installed (e.g., #include <gmp.h>).
I tried to read the documentation on the GMP site, but the it only says to use "make install". I am not sure where I should move the folder first, and when to use "make install".
