OK, you've downloaded this thing, now what?

The first thing to do would be to build it.

This version should've come with a configure script in the main directory. If it didn't (perhaps because you downloaded it from a repository), you'll have to first run autoconf (from the GNU autotools package) to create it. If you have autoconf, running autoconf with no arguments should work.

Now, the configure script should be run with ./configure. You can set the CXX and CXXFLAGS environment variables beforehand if you like.

Now you should have a Makefile.

Type make. You'll need a C++ that implements C++11 for the whole thing to work. I use g++ 6.3.1 last time I built it, so it may require at least that version in the future.

After this is done, you'll have two subdirectories of note.

The first is:


The second is:


The first should be given as a -I parameter when you compile things that use StreamModule, and the second should be given to -L when you link. The name of the library is 'libNet.a', so you'll need the -lNet parameter.

Anyway, I hope this is enough to get you started. Feel free to come onto irc at irc.freenode.net, channel #StrMod and ask questions. Also, feel free to join the mailing list at http://lists.sourceforge.net/mailman/listinfo/strmod-devel
