I'm new to Linux and tar balls and was wondering how to properly install them on a Mac or Linux machine. I would prefer to know how to install on a mac but I just need some help understanding them. I want to install jhead-2.97.tar.gz and I download the zipped source tar ball, yielding a folder containing a myriad of files. I know this is a silly question, but how do I properly install this file on my machine in the Terminal/LXTerminal?
jhead is a command tool that is used to extract from an Exif jpeg file in the Terminal
