As stated above this is very easy indeed. Follow these steps:

  1. After downloading just unzip it using your favorite tool to handle ZIP-files. (E.g. just type unzip from your shell.)

  2. Copy the WarpIn folder to whatever location you want to store WarpIn at. If you have WarpIn already installed you may skip this step. (But ensure that you have the same or a newer version of WarpIn.) After this open that folder and double-click on WarpIn.exe. This will create the necessary program objects and associations to use WarpIn. Note that WarpIn is not written explicitly for Plucker and that we only use it. For details about WarpIn refer to its README files and documentation. WarpIn is Freeware.

    NOTE: Once you have installed WarpIn on your system you can use it to install any other product that is delivered in WPI format. An increasing number of tools use this for there installation.

  3. Now you are ready to install Plucker itself. This is quite easy. Open the folder where you unziped Plucker on the WPS and just double-click on the several WPI-packages (you may note that they are now associated with WarpIn.) This fires up WarpIn which asks you some basic questions on where you want to store the files and stuff like that. Simply follow the on-screen-instructions.

  4. The installer will create a folder on your Desktop called Plucker for OS/2 which will contain all necessary objects for using Plucker. Additionally it will set up Python and Pilot-Link as well as ImageMagick for image conversion.

That's it! Now you are ready to run Plucker on OS/2.

But before you start your first plucking we want to remind you to read section 2.2 to set up Plucker to gather the right contents. You need to follow the steps there to get useful results.

For detailed instructions how to use Plucker refer to the other chapters in this documentation. You may find some hints on how to make most out of Plucker in the appropriate locations within normal documentation, just in case there is anything different on OS/2 than on all the other platforms. You may note that this is very rarely the case at all.

NOTE: If you have any of the packages already installed that are delivered by the installer (most likely this will be the case with Pilot-Link) then simply skip it in the installation process for Plucker.
