Spyce is easy to run without root priveleges. There are two things that
you can do:
1. use it as a command-line tool
2. invoke it via the web using CGI
The rest is will likely require modifications to the web server
configuration. You will either have to run the web server as your own
user (on a higher port), or ask the system administrator to modify the
web server configuration, as described in the Spyce documentation.
For the options above, all you should do is download the Spyce sources
Extract the files into some directory, say 'spyce'.
Go into that directory and type: 'make'.
For option #1 run:
That will show you the command-line options. To process a spyce script,
for example, type:
For option #2, make sure that the spyce sources directory are world
executable. The create some spyce script file in your cgi-bin directory.
At the top, write:
Change the paths to Python and Spyce accordingly. It should work.
All the best,
