What it is
==========
The Revised OpenFlow Library (ROFL) helps you adding OpenFlow support to your software to build control applications, controller frameworks and/or datapath elements.
ROFL-common is a C++ library that helps on writing OpenFlow endpoints (OF agents), for controllers, proxy controllers and datapaths.
Requirements
============
- A modern GNU build-system (autoconf, automake, libtool, ...)
- pkg-config
- GNU/Linux and libc development headers (linux-libc-dev and libc6-dev package in Debian/Ubuntu systems)
- GLOG (libgoogle-glog-dev in Debian/Ubuntu systems)
- [optional] if you want to run automatic tests (make check), libcunit and libcppunit are required (in libcunit1-dev and libcppunit-dev packages in Debian-like systems).
- [optional] Doxygen to generate the documentation.
How to build
============
Install the dependencies and run:
sh# ./autogen.sh
sh# cd build
sh# ../configure
sh# make
sh# make install
Optionally you can 'make check' for consistency checks.
Optional ../configure parameters
================================
--enable-debug: Compile with debug symbols (-g) and debug output (warning, it may affect performance)
--enable-verbose: Increase the level of debug (useless without --enable-debug)
--disable-silent-rules: Enable verbose compilation mode (AM_SILENT_RULES disabled)
Doxygen documentation
================================
Documentation can be compiled via `make doc`. Documentation is generated in build/doc/ folder
Known issues
================================
* Certain GCC 4.8.X family versions are buggy and don't properly compile ROFL with -O3 optimizations. Please use GCC 4.8.3 or higher, or another version family.
FAQ
===
Some distributions, in particular Red Hat based, do not include by default /usr/local/lib on the search path of ldconfig, not allowing to link against -lrofl and -lrofl_pipeline. In this case, you might have to add /usr/local/lib/ into /etc/ld.so.conf and re-run ldconfig.
