1. Overview
===========

OCaml-bitcoin is a library offering an OCaml interface to the official
Bitcoin client API [1].  It works by making JSON-RPC calls over the
network to a running Bitcoin daemon offering the client API.


2. Dependencies
===============

The core library depends solely on Yojson and Cryptokit [2,3].
The optional auxiliary engines each have their own set of dependencies:

  * Bitcoin_ocamlnet: Ocamlnet's Netclient [4].
  * Bitcoin_ocsigen: Lwt and the Ocsigen server libraries [5,6].
  * Bitcoin_cohttp: Lwt and Cohttp [5,7].
  * Bitcoin_ocurl: OCurl [8].


3. Building and installing
==========================

The build system is generated with OASIS [9].  Run 'configure' if
you wish to modify the defaults.  Enter 'make' and 'make install'
to build and install the libraries.  Enter 'make doc' to generate
the API documentation.


4. License
==========

OCaml-bitcoin is distributed under the terms of the GNU LGPL version 2.1
(with OCaml linking exception).  See LICENSE file for full license text.


5. Contributors
===============

Vincent Bernardoff contributed the engines based on OCurl and Cohttp.
