Download PhiloLogic3

We currently have production PhiloLogic databases running on Debian, RedHat and OS, and we encourage others to download our distribution tarball and try it on your TEI-encoded (XML/SGML) texts. If you encounter difficulties, please contact us and we well be happy to help you iron out any problems.

PhiloLogic2 (old)

Retained here for background. Please only download and install PhiloLogic3. The search2 core is known to be unstable on some Linux/OS-X implementations. Some of the installation instructions may still be valid

Current unstable version: PhiloLogic 2.9pre9

Recent changes:

        * new sorted KWIC function
* "theme-rheme" report function
* user history cookie option
* user login option
* load from previously-generated bibliography
* some fixes to egrep calls to embrace non-GNU versions
* default PATH may now be set in /etc/philologic/philologic.cfg

Solaris almost certainly still has some problems, but I've solved every problem I had on my Solaris machine, so I need others to test it. You'll need to install GNU ld and sort (in the GNU binutils and coreutils/textutils packages, respectively) and make sure they're first in your $PATH

You might get some failures because you lack libraries/includes that I didn't expect people to lack and so didn't make them fatal ./configure errors. Let me know!

On Red Hat (Fedora 1) you'll probably want at least these ./configure options:
--with-web-path=/var/www/html/philologic --with-web-url=/philologic --with-cgi-path=/var/www/cgi-bin/philologic --with-cgi-url=/cgi-bin/philologic

Running philoload on Solaris, I got this error: p-t1: fatal: open failed: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [gdbm.t1] Error 137

I fixed it by setting my shell's $LD_LIBRARY_PATH to /usr/local/lib/, which is where pkgadd put libgdbm

But I think the canonical way to fix it is to run ./configure specifying some CFLAGS:

$ CFLAGS="-L/usr/local/lib -I/usr/local/include" ./configure --with-blahblahblah

We recently got PhiloLogic to install on OS X with a few configuration changes. Download the Philo-OSX tarball, and use the following configure line in your installation:

CFLAGS="-I/sw/include -L/sw/lib" ./configure --with-cgi-path=/Library/WebServer/CGI-Executables/philologic --with-cgi-url=/cgi-bin/philologic --with-web-path=/Library/WebServer/Documents/philologic --with-web-url=/philologic --with-authuser-group=admin --with-init-d=$HOME --with-boot-init-d=$HOME

Download the current version of PhiloLogic for OS X: philologic-osx.tar.gz
