Compilation

once you untarred source ( or got it from a source control ) best is to look at README provided in it.

cat README

where you will understand that you have to read another file INSTALL :

cat INSTALL

Depending on your platform you will have to pick up the right INSTALL by example INSTALL.W64. Default is for Unix based systems.

Quick

./config
make
make test
make install

If things go wrong you might want to get some information like BUILD FAQ

    • Visual C++
    • Borland C
    • GNU C (Cygwin or MinGW)
  • Netwide Assembler, a.k.a. NASM, available from http://nasm.sourceforge.net/ is required if you intend to utilize assembler modules. Note that NASM is now the only supported assembler.
