Last change on this file since 4104 was 300, checked in by Sam Hocevar, 16 years ago
  • src/graphics.c: + Minor optimisation in caca_set_color(). + Added an X11 error handler to avoid BadFont? aborts in the X11 driver. + Optimised the X11 caca_refresh() routine by handling strings of the

same colour as one text chunk.

  • src/caca.c: + Bugfix in caca_init when conio is the only compiled-in driver.
  • README: + Minor documentation updates.

3Building libcaca
4
5   o  Run configure then make. Useful configure flags are:
6
7     --enable-ncurses: support for the ncurses library
8     --enable-slang: support for the SLang library
9     --enable-conio: support for MS-DOS conio.h
10     --enable-x11: support for native X11 rendering
11
12     --disable-imlib2: remove Imlib2 support in cacaview
13
14   o  Cross-compilation example:
15 
16     ./configure --disable-imlib2 --host=i386-pc-msdosdjgpp

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