Exmpp is an Erlang application which provides the modules to ease the development of an XMPP/Jabber server or client. == Table of contents == I. How to build and install 1. Requirements 2.

Requirements --------------- o Erlang/OTP (REQUIRED) A full Erlang environment is recommended but only ERTS and erl_interface are required. . Minimum version: R12B-5 o C compiler (REQUIRED) Exmpp contains Erlang port drivers which are written in C. Tested C compilers include: . GNU Compiler Collection (gcc) . Intel C++ Compiler (icc) . GCC frontend for LLVM (llvm-gcc) . Microsoft Visual C++ (cl) C compilers known not to work: . clang frontend for LLVM (ccc) o XML parsing library (REQUIRED) Tested libraries are: . Expat: recommended. Tested: 2.0.1 . LibXML2: only experimental support. o OpenSSL (optional) It's the only TLS engine supported for now. . Tested version: 0.9.8e o zlib (optional) It's the only compression engine supported for now. . Tested version: 1.2.3 o eunit (optional) To be able to use the testsuite, this Erlang application is required. . Tested version: 2.0 2. Build and install -------------------- Exmpp uses the Autotools. Therefore the process is quite common: $ ./configure $ make $ sudo make install Building outside of the source directory is supported: $ mkdir exmpp-build $ cd exmpp-build exmpp-build$ /path/to/exmpp-src/configure exmpp-build$ make exmpp-build$ sudo make install By default, Exmpp is installed in Erlang lib directory. You may select another directory with the --prefix argument to the configure script: $ ./configure --prefix=/install/exmpp/here Exmpp will be installed in "/install/exmpp/here/exmpp-$VERSION". 3. Building examples -------------------- You can find example code in the "examples" directory. These modules may be built for you with the --enable-examples configure argument: $ ./configure --enable-examples For now, they're not installed. 4. Using an alternate Erlang environment ---------------------------------------- If Erlang cannot be found by the configure script of if you prefer to use a specific Erlang environment, you may indicate an alternate Erlang root directory with the --with-erlang argument: $ ./configure --with-erlang=/path/to/alternate/erlang Another way is to set the following configure variables: $ ./configure ERL=/path/to/bin/erl ERLC=/path/to/bin/ERLC \ ESCRIPT=/path/to/bin/escript 5. Using another C compiler --------------------------- You may specify another C compiler to use at configure time. For instance, to use GCC frontend for LLVM: $ ./configure CC=llvm-gcc $ make 6. Creating Autotools files --------------------------- If you work on a Subversion checkout, you'll have to generate some files such as the configure script and Makefile.in. For this, you'll have to install the following autotools: o autoconf 2.60 or higher (read below for 2.62 and 2.63) o automake 1.9 or later o libtool 1.5 or later To generate the files, run: $ autoreconf -vif After that, you can use the standard procedure: $ ./configure $ make WARNING: Erlang support in old autoconf 2.62 and 2.63 was broken! If you must stick to these versions, you must apply the following patch to 'erlang.m4' in 'share/autoconf-2.62/autoconf' (patch taken from official autoconf GIT repository): ----8<---- --- erlang.m4-broken 2009-01-14 17:54:41.000000000 +0100 +++ erlang.m4 2009-01-14 16:51:57.000000000 +0100 @@ -124,7 +124,7 @@ m4_define([AC_LANG(Erlang)], [ac_ext=erl ac_compile='$ERLC $ERLCFLAGS -b beam conftest.$ac_ext >&AS_MESSAGE_LOG_FD' -ac_link='$ERLC $ERLCFLAGS -b beam conftest.$ac_ext >&AS_MESSAGE_LOG_FD ; echo "#!/bin/sh" > conftest$ac_exeext ; AS_ECHO(["\"$ERL\" -run conftest start -run init stop -noshell"]) >> conftest$ac_exeext ; chmod +x conftest$ac_exeext' +ac_link='$ERLC $ERLCFLAGS -b beam conftest.$ac_ext >&AS_MESSAGE_LOG_FD ; echo "[#]!/bin/sh" > conftest$ac_exeext ; AS_ECHO(["\"$ERL\" -run conftest start -run init stop -noshell"]) >> conftest$ac_exeext ; chmod +x conftest$ac_exeext' ]) ----8<---- After applying the patch, you must run the following commands: $ cd [...]/share/autoconf-2.62/autoconf $ autom4te --language=autoconf --freeze --output=autoconf.m4f
