3Building libcaca
4
5   o  Run configure then make. Useful configure flags are:
6
7     --enable-ncurses: support for the ncurses library (default enabled)
8     --enable-slang: add support for the SLang library
9     --enable-conio: add support for MS-DOS conio.h
10     --enable-x11: add support for native X11 rendering
11
12   o  Cross-compilation example:
13 
14     ./configure --disable-ncurses --enable-conio --host=i386-pc-msdosdjgpp

17Using libcaca
18
19   o  Look into the examples/ directory for simple source code examples.
20
21   o  Compiling a libcaca program is fairly simple:
22
23      gcc -c foobar.c -o foobar.o `caca-config --cflags`
24      gcc foobar.o -o foobar `caca-config --libs`
25
26   o  If you are writing a shared object that uses libcaca, either a
27      dynamically loadable plug-in or a shared library, you should use
28      the `--plugin-libs' flag for libcaca:
29
30      gcc -fPIC -c libfoo.c -o libfoo.o `caca-config --cflags`
31      gcc -shared libfoo.o -o libfoo.so `caca-config --plugin-libs`
32
33
34Binary packages
35
36   o  As the API is not stable yet, everyone should statically link libcaca
37      with their programs or libraries. DO NOT DISTRIBUTE SHARED VERSIONS
38      OF LIBCACA.
