How to use the Jungerl
======================================================================
Simple! You just do 'make' to build all the erlang programs.
If you want, you can add the bin/ directory to your $PATH, and use the
useful programs in there. One is 'jerl', a simple wrapper around 'erl'
that adds all the Jungerl applications to the code path.
If a program is giving you trouble, just put an empty file called SKIP
in its top-level directory. For example, if you want to skip the
'tuntap' program, you can do: touch lib/tuntap/SKIP
If you want to compile only one program or library, you can just do 'make conf'
and then type make in the lib/PROGRAMNAME directory of your choice.
How to add an application to the Jungerl
======================================================================
Each application has its own directory called lib/<appname>.
The absolute minimum requirement for an application is to have a
Makefile in the lib/<appname> directory with two targets:
'all' should build the program.
'clean' should delete any object files.
Realistically, your lib/<appname>/ dir should also have any of these
subdirectories that are appropriate:
src/ containing erlang sources
ebin/ for putting compiled beam files
c_src/ containing C sources
priv/ containing files you want at runtime (e.g. built from c_src)
doc/ (not sure what this is for..)
Once you have created your application, you should edit the 'lib/'
directory Makefile like this:
Add your <appname> to the "LIBS" variable.
If you depend on other applications, add a line that says so. (These
are down near the bottom.)
Note that Applications in the Jungerl should be compatible with the
latest released version of Erlang/OTP!
Makefile Helpers
----------------------------------------------------------------------
The support/ directory contains a couple of useful include files for
your Makefiles:
subdirs.mk: Intended for your lib/<appname>/ directory, this defines
targets for 'all' and 'clean' that just cd into $(SUBDIRS) (by
default c_src and src) and does the same "make" in each of them.
include.mk: This defines a bunch of useful things for building C and
Erlang programs. For C it has 'configure'-detected CC and CFLAGS
variables, and ERL_C_INCLUDE_DIR for
<prefix>/lib/erlang/usr/include/ (e.g. for writing drivers)
For Erlang it has a 'configure'-detected ERLC, an
automatically-detected list of beam files to build (../ebin/*.beam
for all *.erl files) called ERL_OBJECTS, and
automatically-detected list of headers they depend on (*.hrl and
../include/*.hrl) called ERL_HEADERS, and an implicit rule for
building ../ebin/*.beam from *.erl.
That probably wasn't very clear, but if you look at how the 'tuntap'
program's Makefiles are done then it should be obvious!
