Build the Examples

Docker Repository on Quay

First, clone this repository:

git clone

Next, perform an out-of-source CMake build. For example:

cd ccc
git submodule init
git submodule update
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..
cmake --build .

Your build directory should now contain requisite files for building on your current platform. On Windows, for example, you should find a .sln Visual Studio Solution file. On macOS/Linux, you should find a make file.
