Method 1: Downloading Linux RPM packages

All our RPMs are signed using this GPG key.

Latest version RPM

This package was built on Fedora 28.

This is a RHEL/CentOS 7 package.

Note: this is version patch8; patch9 was not built because the RHEL/CentOS 7 ships with NCURSES 5. Without NCURSES 6 the new CLEX version patch9 has exactly the same functionality as the old patch8.

Method 2: Compiling from sources

This is the way to install CLEX on any compatible Unix or Unix-like system. An ANSI/ISO C compiler is necessary to compile CLEX from the source code. You will also need the ncurses library with header files (usually packaged as ncurses-devel) which is part of most - if not all - system distributions.

Download the source and unpack it. Run ./configure and then make. Finally run make install as root. i.e. using sudo. Read the INSTALL file for detailed instructions.

In case you want to build an RPM package, run rpmbuild -tb clex-4.6.patch9.tar.gz.

Method 3: Third party packages

CLEX software packages are also available from several external sources. As always, download only from a trusted source. Check the CLEX version number to make sure the repository is up to date. Many of them are not.
