Standalone libraries: --------------------- binrpc - A library that provides common interface for different communication methods (UNIX sockets, TCP, UDP) using binary RPC as a transport form of data. The interface is documented directly in binrpc_api.h file and can by generated into HTML form by using Doxygen. There is no difference between compilation "with" or "without" SER (see compilation section below). Libraries common to modules: --------------------------- cds - Common Data Structures (basic string operations, dynamic string, vector, message queue, ...) presence - Library holding common structures and functions abaut presence (API for internal subscriptions, common presence structures, common presence data formats) requires internal libraries: cds xcap - Common XCAP operations and structures (XCAP authorization documents and XCAP resource lists processing) requires external libraries: libxml2, libcurl3 (nonSER version) requires internal libraries: cds Used by modules: pa, rls, dialog, rpa Usage: ----- All libraries can be compiled "with ser" or "without ser". Compilation without ser may be useful for debugging purposes or for example for searching for memory leaks with some tool like valgrind. Compilation with ser: -------------------- Compilation and installation of these libraries is NOT DONE by running main ser makefile now - it MUST be done MANUALLY. For this purpose is there Makefile.ser. To compile and install libraries simply run make -f Makefile.ser install in lib directory. You can select destination directory like in the case of ser, for example: make -f Makefile.ser install prefix="/my/ser/directory" AFTER COMPILATION of libraries you can COMPILE MODULES using this libraries like PA, RLS or dialog. Running with ser (Linux): ---------------- The path to installed libraries must be known to linker on startup. This can be done by setting variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH before running ser. For example, if libraries were installed to default directory (/usr/local), you should set LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib/ser. In the case of nonstandard installation, you can use something like LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/my/ser/directory/lib/ser. Documentation ------------- Documentation for all libraries is (or will be) in docbook-XML format and it is stored in doc directory (for example cds/doc contains documentation for Common Data Structures library). Documentation can be translated into HTML using a XSLT processor which is able to work with "include" directives. For example xmlto html cds/doc/cds.xml will create HTML documentation for CDS library in current directory.
