What would you like to do?
mkdir -p "$PREFIX" && \
curl$VERSION/node-v$VERSION-$PLATFORM-$ARCH.tar.gz \
| tar xzvf - --strip-components=1 -C "$PREFIX"

Starting with node v0.8.6, we're gonna be releasing official binary tarballs of the releases for the most common platform+architecture combos.

Here's a simple script that will install node using a simple curl | tar piping. By default the files will get installed into your HOME directory. Change the PREFIX variable to /usr/local if you're feeling ambitious (note: you may need to run this as root depending on the PREFIX).
