Executable Unix Binaries

Precompiled binaries are available for the Unix systems listed below. These binaries are built with graphics enabled, so the X Window system must be present on the target platform. Each package includes the translator, interpreter, interface builder, and library procedures. To install Icon from binaries,

  1. Download the correct tar file for your system.
  2. Unpack it to produce an icon-v951 directory.
  3. Follow the installation instructions.

Binary packages are 1.5 MB gzipped tar files. Unpack by gunzip <file.tgz | tar xf –.

Unix Source Code

The current source code, including all changes since June of 2013, is maintained as a public Git repository hosted by GitHub. Icon can be downloaded as a Zip file that can be built without learning Git.

The source code package for version 9.5.1 is a 3.1 MB gzipped tar file that includes the complete Icon program library. It can be configured for most Unix platforms including Cygwin and Darwin. Download icon-v951src.tgz.

Source code packages include build instructions and other current documentation.
