I am facing an issue while compiling the token contract.

    cd eos/contract/eosio.token

    eosiocpp -o eosio.token.wast eosio.token.cpp

But it shows the following response,

    eosiocpp: command not found

Shall I need to install the compiler for doing the operation. I have installed the EOSIO using the Source.

After building, if you want your binaries installed system-wide, you need to run in the build folder

$ sudo make install 

Afterwards, the script should output where the binaries have been copied, and, if it's not already in the $PATH, you can extend your $PATH to look for them there. Example:

$ export PATH=/usr/local/eosio/bin/:$PATH
$ which eosiocpp
$ eosiocpp -n hello
$ eosiocpp -o hello/hello.wasm hello/hello.cpp
