OpenCAMLib README 1. INTRODUCTION OpenCAMLib (ocl) is a c++ library for creating toolpaths for cnc-machines such as mills and lathes. Unti around July 2011 the project was hosted at http://code.google.com/p/opencamlib/ We are now moving to github: https://github.com/aewallin/opencamlib The mailing-list for general development and user-discussion is: http://groups.google.com/group/opencamlib SVN commit messages go to a mailing-list: http://groups.google.com/group/opencamlib-svn IRC-channel #cam on irc.freenode.net It's probably a good idea to try to adhere to some coding standard. Maybe this one: http://www.possibility.com/Cpp/CppCodingStandard.html 2. CLONING, BUILDING and INSTALLING (on unix/debian-like systems) $ git clone git://github.com/aewallin/opencamlib.git $ cd opencamlib $ mkdir build $ cd build $ cmake ../src $ make (try make -j4 for a faster build if you have a multi-core machine) $ sudo make install will install the ocl.so library and camvtk.py so that any python shell will find them. if you also want to build the documentation, then run $ make doc $> make doc-pdf this should create the ocl manual named "ocl-manual.pdf" in the build/doc directory using cmake and cpack it is possible to build a binary .deb package with $ make package For uploading debian source-packages to the PPA there is also a custom target $ make spackage The build directory opencamlib/build can be wiped clean ("rm -rf *") and cmake run again if/when you want a clean build. 3.

Ubuntu 10.04LTS-> install and build - install 64-bit Ubuntu 10.04LTS - run update manager and install all suggested updates. reboot. - using synaptic or apt-get, install the following packages(and their dependencies) -- build-essential -- cmake -- subversion -- doxygen -- texlive-latex-base -- libboost-all-dev - checkout ocl from svn -- instructions: http://code.google.com/p/opencamlib/source/checkout - in the /src directory, first run "cmake ." then "make" and then "sudo make install" -- this should build and install ocl correctly.
