README FOR BUILD-CGDB
The build-cgdb project builds a standalone, universal cgdb executable that runs
on Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
In addition, it creates a convenient installer to install the
/usr/local/bin/cgdb executable, the /usr/local/share/man/man1/cgdb.1 man page,
the /usr/local/share/info/cgdb.info info file and the
The resulting installer is compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 and later.
Simply run the build script and all necessary files will be downloaded and then
cgdb will be built and a cgdb.dmg disk image created containing the cgdb
In order to build the installer, fakeroot must be installed. A compatible
version of fakeroot can be installed from the github
In order to build, the Mac OS X 10.4u SDK is required as well as the developer
tools (with gcc version 4.0) and building requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
The cgdb sources are licensed with GPLv2 (or later) and require Readline
version 5.1 or later. Readline 5.2 is the last GPLv2 (or later) licensed
version of Readline (Readline 6 is GPLv3 or later). The built OS X cgdb
executable included in the installer is linked against a version 5.2 Readline
library so the entire work remains GPLv2 (or later).
