================================ CoverArtArchive Client Library

Documentation

To get started quickly have a look at the examples directory which contains various sample programs. API documentation can be generated using [Doxygen] (http://www.stack.nl/~dimitri/doxygen/). The online version of the API documentation can be found at:

http://metabrainz.github.com/libcoverart/

Compiling and Linking

This package provides a pkg-config script that returns the necessary compiler and linker flags, as well as the version number. To build a small sample program using the C++ API one would use:

g++ -o test_app test_app.cpp `pkg-config libcoverartcc --cflags --libs`

To build a small sample program using the C API one would use:

gcc -o test_app test_app.c `pkgconfig libcoverart --cflags --libs`

If you don't want/can't use pkg-config and you are using the C API, make sure you link in the C++ standard library:

gcc -o test_app test_app.c -lcoverart -lm -lstdc++
