This is a port of many Plan 9 libraries and programs to Unix.

  • Installation

To install, run ./INSTALL. It builds mk and then uses mk to run the rest of the installation.

For more details, see install(1), at install.txt in this directory and at

  • Documentation

See for more documentation. (Documentation is also in this tree, but you need to run a successful install first. After that, “9 man 1 intro”.)

Intro(1) contains a list of man pages that describe new features or differences from Plan 9.

  • Helping out

If you'd like to help out, great! The TODO file contains a small list.

If you port this code to other architectures, please share your changes so others can benefit.

Please use diff -u or CVS (see below) to prepare patches.

  • CVS

You can use CVS to keep your local copy up-to-date as we make changes and fix bugs. See the cvs(1) man page here (“9 man cvs”) for details on using cvs.
