	1. Assume you want to install the Core Library in the directory 
	$(CORE_INSTALL).  In Unix/Linux or Cygwin, you would do:
	    % cd $(CORE_INSTALL)

	where "%" indicates the unix prompt.  For Windows, read the
	installation guide in the README file.

	2. Download the Core Library distribution file "core-X.Y.Z.tgz"
	(or the variant you choose).  Here "X.Y.Z" is the version of Core 
	Library.  We sometimes omit the third digit (Z) of the version number, in 
	which case "core-X.Y.tgz" refers to "core-X.Y.Z.tgz" for the latest "Z" value.
	See download instructions above.
	Move the distribution file to $(CORE_INSTALL).

	3.  Unzip and untar the distribution file as follows:

	    % gzip -cd core-X.Y.Z.tgz | tar xvf -

	This creates the directory "core-X.Y.Z".   In the rest of these
	instructions, assume $(CORE_PATH) = $(CORE_INSTALL)/core-X.Y.Z.

	4. The README file found 
	in $(CORE_PATH) contains an overview 
	and the rest of the installation instructions.  Continue from there.
