May I know Linux compile command? I downloaded some program from the Internet. It says compile it to run. How do I compile it?

Say your tarball name is foo.tar, you need to untar it:

tar xvf foo.tar

Read the file named README or INSTALL for info on how to compile software:

ls
vi README

Typically you run:

make
make install
