I tested on Ubuntu 17.10, x86-64 with

- GCC 7.2.0
- Perl 5.26.0
- Go 1.8.3

The Travis CI tests passed. The Appveyor tests are still queued at the time of
writing:

- https://travis-ci.org/apache/lucy/builds/343891355
- https://ci.appveyor.com/project/Humbedooh/lucy/build/1.0.132

You can test both the Clownfish and Lucy RC with the test_all.sh script:

     curl
https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/lucy/clownfish/apache-clownfish-0.6.3-rc1/apache-clownfish-0.6.3.tar.gz
|tar xz
     curl
https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/lucy/apache-lucy-0.6.2-rc1/apache-lucy-0.6.2.tar.gz
|tar xz
     mv apache-clownfish-0.6.3 clownfish
     mv apache-lucy-0.6.2 lucy
     lucy/devel/bin/test_all.sh

The script requires a golang installation, Perl, and a C compiler. You can
also test host languages separately by running

     lucy/devel/bin/test_all.sh go
     lucy/devel/bin/test_all.sh perl
     lucy/devel/bin/test_all.sh c
