HC_CHAT

NAME

hc_chat - Simple chat using HAMcast stack

BUILD/INSTALL

Requirements

  • cmake (Version 2.6+)
  • cmake macro 'FindLibHamcast.cmake'
  • boost libraries developers edition
  • HAMcast library and middleware

Build

We recommend an 'out-of-source' cmake-build. Create a new folder, e.g. 'build' within the source directory. Change to new folder (cd build) and run:

  cmake ../

if you have not install libhamcast to standard directories, run:

  cmake -DHAMCAST_INCLUDE_PATH=<path-to-headers> \
        -DHAMCAST_LIBRARY_PATH=<path-to-libhamcast> ../

'path-to-headers' is the absolute path where 'hamcast/hamcast.hpp' can be found. 'path-to-libhamcast' is the absolute path where 'libhamcast.so' can be found. If both are the same, you have to provide only one of them. This will initialize build environment, if no errors occure run:

  make

If build was successful you find the binary in 'build' folder.

Install

Currently not supported. Just run hc_chat from build directory.
