INSTALL clarity

Scott Brozell
Hi,

In openbabel-2.3.0/INSTALL the Basic Installation recipe for step 1.
is not clear.  The phrase 'package source directory' lead me to
cd openbabel-2.3.0/src
mkdir build
This did not work.

Please clarify INSTALL to specify the Basic build procedure at
http://openbabel.org/docs/2.3.0/Installation/install.html#compiling-open-babel
which did work.

thanks,
scott

Done in r4348. How are the new instructions?

Hi,

Better, but i can still imagine that a newbie installer will
wonder where to
mkdir build

How about:
1. Create a 'build' directory outside ~/openbabel-2.3.0, e.g.:
mkdir ~/openbabelbuild
cd ~/openbabelbuild

thank you for your work,
scott
