Readme for development snapshot 2013-04-23
This is a development snapshot. As such, there may be problems due to
This snapshot splits the code into sections "lib", "apps", "main".
"main" is a simple main program "gnucap" that dynamically links to
"lib" is the core library "libgnucap.so", required for all programs in
the gnucap collection. This library can also be used with different
front-ends, possibly in other languages.
"apps" is a set of plugins that are loaded by default. It builds
"libgnucap-default-plugins.so". The ".cc" files here are mostly
independent of each other. To add or remove one of them from the
build, just edit "Make1" and recompile. Alternatively, any of them
can be extracted and built separately.
"modelgen" is the old model compiler, which now links to libgnucap.so.
Installation (still "make install") installs the parts as expected.
It also installs the header files in $PREFIX/include/gnucap, to build
Although it does not use autoconf, the configure/make procedure is the
same as it would be with autoconf.
Model plugin tarballs have not been updated yet, but have been
repackaged for date consistency.
This snapshot lifts the biggest block that has been getting in the way
of a stable release.
