h2. Clone the repository
25 1 Dan Smith
26 2 Dan Smith
The next step is to download a copy of the repository. This is done from the command-line, and will create a @chirp.hg/@ directory in your current directory. Thus, you should change to the place you want it to be first. For example:
27 1 Dan Smith
28 2 Dan Smith
<pre>
29 2 Dan Smith
C:\Users\Foo> cd \MyWorkspace
30 2 Dan Smith
C:\MyWorkspace> hg clone http://d-rats.com/hg/chirp.hg
31 2 Dan Smith
</pre>
32 1 Dan Smith
33 1 Dan Smith
h2. Run chirp
34 1 Dan Smith
35 2 Dan Smith
Python should be in your search path from the install, but if not, put it in the system PATH environment variable. Once you do that, you should be able to enter the directory that was created in the clone step above, and run chirpw with python:
36 1 Dan Smith
37 2 Dan Smith
<pre>
38 2 Dan Smith
C:\MyWorkspace> cd chirp.hg
39 2 Dan Smith
C:\MyWorkspace\chirp.hg> python chirpw
40 2 Dan Smith
</pre>
