On any *nix system it should be as simple as:
git clone https://github.com/lunasorcery/pridecat.git cd pridecat make && make install
This depends on a recent (C++11) C++ compiler being available. If you encounter issues, please let me know.
There's currently no Windows-compatible build setup, but the code should work under the notable windows terminals if you compile it with cl.exe. Tested in cmd, PowerShell, and Windows Terminal.
It also appears to work out-of-the-box in WSL.
