Description: Monitor calibration tool

NOTE: I use GNU tar >= 1.13.25 so it's -j for .tar.bz2 files,
it's safe to assume that make, gcc, binutils, fileutils/coreutils, gawk, sed, and grep are prerequisites for almost everything

# Monica 3.4
# ==========
# Download Monica from the web site using something other than wget.  wget
# downloads have been disallowed due to morons that suck down the entire
# site and everything on it.  When you get it, stick it in your home
# directory.

# Prerequisites:
# XFree86 or
# fltk

test -f installed/monica-3.4.tar.bz2 && mv installed/monica-3.4.tar.bz2 .

# Verify tarball w/ md5sum:
echo "4b329ff66b2b6858b6581faa59d0e95e  monica-3.4.tar.bz2" | md5sum -c

mkdir -p -m 0700 src
cd src
find -maxdepth 1 -type d -name "monica-*" -exec rm -r {} \;
tar xjvf ~/monica-3.4.tar.bz2
cd monica-3.4
test $UID = 0 && chown -R root:root .
su -c "make install"
mkdir -p -m 0700 installed
rm -f installed/monica-*.tar.*
mv monica-3.4.tar.bz2 installed/

# If you ever want to uninstall monica, this should do it:
test -d src/monica-* && ( cd src/monica-* ; make uninstall )
rm -f /usr/bin/monica
find ~/src -maxdepth 1 -type d -name "monica-*" -exec rm -r {} \;
rm -f ~/installed/monica-*.tar.*
