1 - Compiling HTMLDOC
This chapter describes the steps needed to compile HTMLDOC on your
Getting a Precompiled Executable
If you don't think you're up to compiling HTMLDOC, or you don't
have the compiler and libraries listed below, consider downloading a precompiled
version of HTMLDOC. Precompiled binaries are currently available
for the following systems:
HTMLDOC requires the following software and libraries:
The GZIP library is used for reading PNG image files as well as writing
compressed PDF files. GIF reading support is provided by HTMLDOC
The JPEG library is used for reading JPEG image files as well as
writing JPEG-compressed images in Level 2 PostScript and PDF output.
For the Microsoft Windows version of HTMLDOC you'll probably
need Microsoft Visual C++ 5.0 or higher (other PC compilers may
work; I didn't have much luck with Borland C++ 5.02).
Compiling under UNIX
If you are compiling for Windows, see "Compiling
with the Visual C++ Project File".
HTMLDOC is built from a single Makefile in the distribution's
main directory (htmldoc-1.7). To configure the Makefile for your
system you must run the configure script:
% ./configure Enter
To compile HTMLDOC simply run the "make" command in the
HTMLDOC directory. If you get any fatal errors please send a
copy of the make/compiler output to
"firstname.lastname@example.org" for assistance. Please note the version of
HTMLDOC that you are using as well as any pertinent system
information (operating system, OS version, compiler, etc.)
Installing the Software
The Makefile built by the configure script supports installation of the
program and man pages under /usr/local or a directory provided to the
configure script using the "--prefix=directory" option.
To install HTMLDOC simply run the "make install" command as root.
A sample project file for Visual C++ 5.0 is included in the source
distribution in the file htmldoc.dsp. You will need to change
the include directories and libraries to point to the directories
containing the JPEG, PNG, ZLIB, and FLTK libraries.
