There is one debian package and several perl modules encapsulated in this repository. The main module is CBitcoin.
This module contains no subroutines. Instead, it is used as a placeholder for the XS modules. All of the XS modules for the other perl modules are chained to CBitcoin.xs. Unfortunately, in some situations (unknown to the author), require symlinking the shared library CBitcoin.so into where Dynaloader (via bootloader) automatically looks for shared libraries of the perl module being run. For example, bootloader looks for the XS binary in auto/CBitcoin/CBHD/CBHD.so when running CBHD::xs_sub.
So, we have to symlink auto/CBitcoin/CBitcoin.so to auto/CBitcoin/CBHD/CBHD.so.
To create Hierarchial Deterministic keys, see CBitcoin::CBHD and t/02-CBHD.t To create scripts, see CBitcoin::Script. To create transactions, see CBitcoin::Transaction, CBitcoin::TransactionInput and CBitcoin::TransactionOutput, and more importantly see t/05-Transaction.t
To see how an spv client works, check out the t/spv.t.no script. It contains an example of how to implement an spv client in perl. Though, this section is work in progress.
For more information, please take a look (http://e-flamingo.net/pages/)[at this blog post].
To compile a debian package, first install libccoin0, which is https://github.com/favioflamingo/picocoin. Once you compile and install the cbitcoin source package, go into the main directory and type:
dh_make -p libcbitcoin-perl_0.01 --createorig -l debuild -uc
To install this module manually, run the following commands:
perl Makefile.PL make make test make install
SUPPORT AND DOCUMENTATION
After installing, you can find documentation for this module with the perldoc command.
