TouchCursor Readme
==================

Dependencies
============

C++ Libraries
-------------

* wxWidgets 2.8 (unicode builds)
* boost 1.39 (later may also work)

The location of these libraries can be configured by editing 
touchcursor.vsprops.

Tools
-----

* Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 
(Haven't tried VC++ Express)

Scripts that build the installer and docs require:

* InnoSetup >=v5.2.2 (http://www.jrsoftware.org/isinfo.php)
* Python >=v2.4 (http://python.org)
* Python markdown library (http://pypi.python.org/pypi/Markdown)
* 7zip (http://www.7-zip.org/)


Building
========

Run build.bat to build executables and docs and package them into zip and 
installer files. Alternatively, load touchcursor.sln into Visual Studio and 
build in the IDE to build the executables only.

If your Visual Studio installation is not at the location used in the batch
file, you'll need to edit it.


Project Directories
===================

touchcursor
    Source for touchcursor.exe, which loads the hook DLL and runs the systray 
    menu.

touchcursordll
    Source for touchcursor.dll. This is the core of TouchCursor and contains 
    the keyboard hook function. (Windows requires this to be in a DLL rather than
    an exe.)

tcconfig
    Source for tcconfig.exe, which edits the configuration file. This was 
    implemented as separate program to keep the memory usage of the permanently
    running modules low.

touchcursor_update
    Source for a touchcursor_update.exe, which is optionally used to check for a
    new version of TouchCursor. The separate exe is partly due to paranoia about
    malware scanners that might be suspicious of a program that installed a 
    keyboard hook and connected to the internet.

tclib
    Functions shared by the other projects.

setup
    Source, scripts and dependencies for building the installer.

docs
    Source for the help file. The text is in Markdown format. The html is built
    by a script in the setup directory.
