README.md

Evented I/O for V8 javascript.

To build:

Prerequisites (Unix only):

* GCC 4.2 or newer
* G++ 4.2 or newer
* Python 2.6 or 2.7
* GNU Make 3.81 or newer
* libexecinfo (FreeBSD and OpenBSD only)

Unix/Macintosh:

./configure
make
make install

If your python binary is in a non-standard location or has a non-standard name, run the following instead:

export PYTHON=/path/to/python
$PYTHON ./configure
make
make install

Prerequisites (Windows only):

* Python 2.6 or 2.7
* Visual Studio 2010 or 2012

Windows:

vcbuild nosign

You can download pre-built binaries for various operating systems from http://nodejs.org/download/. The Windows and OS X installers will prompt you for the location in which to install. The tarballs are self-contained; you can extract them to a local directory with:

tar xzf /path/to/node-<version>-<platform>-<arch>.tar.gz

Or system-wide with:

cd /usr/local && tar --strip-components 1 -xzf \
                    /path/to/node-<version>-<platform>-<arch>.tar.gz

To run the tests:

Unix/Macintosh:

make test

Windows:

vcbuild test

To build the documentation:

make doc

To read the documentation:

man doc/node.1

Intl (ECMA-402) support:

Intl support is not enabled by default.

"small" (English only) support

This option will build with "small" (English only) support, but the full Intl (ECMA-402) APIs. With --download=all it will download the ICU library as needed.

Unix/Macintosh:

./configure --with-intl=small-icu --download=all

Windows:

vcbuild small-icu download-all

The small-icu mode builds with English-only data. You can add full data at runtime.

Note: more docs are on the wiki.

Build with full ICU support (all locales supported by ICU):

With the --download=all, this may download ICU if you don't have an ICU in deps/icu.

Unix/Macintosh:

./configure --with-intl=full-icu --download=all

Windows:

vcbuild full-icu download-all

Build with no Intl support :-(

The Intl object will not be available. This is the default at present, so this option is not normally needed.

Unix/Macintosh:

./configure --with-intl=none

Windows:

vcbuild intl-none

Use existing installed ICU (Unix/Macintosh only):

pkg-config --modversion icu-i18n && ./configure --with-intl=system-icu

Build with a specific ICU:

You can find other ICU releases at the ICU homepage. Download the file named something like icu4c-**##.#**-src.tgz (or .zip).

Unix/Macintosh: from an already-unpacked ICU

./configure --with-intl=[small-icu,full-icu] --with-icu-source=/path/to/icu

Unix/Macintosh: from a local ICU tarball

./configure --with-intl=[small-icu,full-icu] --with-icu-source=/path/to/icu.tgz

Unix/Macintosh: from a tarball URL

./configure --with-intl=full-icu --with-icu-source=http://url/to/icu.tgz

Windows: first unpack latest ICU to deps/icu icu4c-##.#-src.tgz (or .zip) as deps/icu (You'll have: deps/icu/source/...)

vcbuild full-icu
