Here's an example session in the erlang shell. See the src/erlgeom.erl file for more examples.

$ erl -pa ebin
Erlang R14B03 (erts-5.8.4) [source] [64-bit] [smp:4:4] [rq:4] [async-threads:0] [kernel-poll:false]

On Windows

You need to have GEOS installed, let's say it was installed to C:\cygwin\opt\couchbase.

Open a shell which has all compilers and the MSVC environment set up (e.g. the Windows SDK 7.1 Command Prompt).

Now set it up so that GEOS and Erlang can be found:

SET INCLUDE=%INCLUDE%;C:\cygwin\opt\couchbase\include
SET LIB=%LIB%;C:\cygwin\opt\couchbase\lib
SET PATH=%PATH%;C:\cygwin\opt\couchbase\bin;C:\erl5.9.1\bin

And finally compile the whole thing:

rebar compile
Jump to Line
