Customizing installation parameters

While it is true that both the default install parameters and automatic OS platform detection will handle the majority of use cases, there might be special cases. It is possible to change the default installation directories for the Space program and shell auto completion support.


This script takes two optional parameters. The first one is the Space program path and the second one is the auto completion path, where the customized Space shell completion will be installed to. Paths can be either absolute or relative.
