Running application without installing interpreter?

Postby norbertjurkiewicz84 on Fri Jun 29, 2018 2:17 pm

Is it possible to start a Linux runtime interpreter without executing the full installer on the system?

I'd like to have the runtime and application be downloaded, extracted and executed with a bash script.

Norbert,

You are free to extract the files manually from the .deb or .rpm install package, e.g. with "dpkg-deb -x", put them anywhere you want, and run the "mapl" script to start the interpreter.

I wouldn't say this is an officially supported way to run the interpreter, but as far as I know it should work.

Regards,
Jay.
