CamlImages - Objective Caml image processing library
To install CamlImages library, you need the following softwares:
- OCaml 4.00.1 or higher (OCaml 3.11 and above might work with small trivial fixes, but never tested)
- Findlib (aka ocamlfind, http://www.camlcity.org/archive/programming/findlib.html )
- OMake ( http://omake.metaprl.org/index.html )
Note that this is the minimum requirement: you can read/write BMP or PXM (PPM, PGM, PBM) image formats but no other formats. If you want to deal with other image formats, you need to install the corresponding external libraries:
- libpng for PNG format
- libjpeg for JPEG format
- libexif for EXIF tags in JPEG files
- libtiff for TIFF format
- libxpm for XPM format (could be already by the X server installation)
- freetype for drawing texts using truetype fonts
- libungif/libgif for GIF format
- ghostscript for PS format
- lablgtk2, an OCaml interface to gtk+
% yes no | omake --install % omake --configure <configuration options> % omake install
At omake --configure, you can specify CFLAGS and LDFLAGS to add extra header and library search paths respectively. For example,:
% omake --configure CFLAGS="-I /usr/include/libexif" LDFLAGS="-L/opt/blah"
List of configurable variables
CFLASG, INCLUDES, LDFLAGS: as usual.
Without specifying ARG_WANT_<feature>, omake --configure automatically searches the availability of <feature> and enables it when found.
If ARG_WANT_<feature>=0, the feature is not checked, and disabled.
If ARG_WANT_<feature>=1, the feature must exist and is enabled. If omake fails to find the feature, the entire build fails.
- Currently the following features are available:
- GIF, PNG, JPEG, EXIF, TIFF, XPM, GS, LABLGTK2, GRAPHICS, FREETYPE
ARG_PATH_PKG_CONFIG=string ARG_PATH_FREETYPE_CONFIG=string ARG_PATH_GS=string
PATH of external commands like pkg-config, freetype-config and gs Without specifying, omake tries to find them in the PATH.
Before you actually install the library, you can check that it really works, by running examples in the test directory. For the test programs,:
% cd test % omake % ./test % ./test.run
(./test.run is the bytecode executable and ./test the binary executable).
