You need CMake (http://www.cmake.org/) to build this library. Example of how to build the library is for Visual Studio's nmake but you can use pretty same steps sequence for any other generator. Building steps are next:

  2. Create new empty directory build and change your working directory to it by running mkdir build, cd build.
  3. Run cmake -G "NMake Makefiles" .. to create Makefile.
  4. Run nmake to build the library.
  5. Optionally you can run nmake install to install newly built library.
