FPsolve -- Overview
FPsolve is a proof-of-concept implementation of a fixed-point solver based on Newton's method generalized to omega-continuous semirings. For some introduction about this idea, have a look at this paper.
Currently to build FPsolve you will need a C++ compiler with C++0x/C++11 support (tested on GCC 4.6 and 4.7 as well as Clang 3.2), as well as Boost libraries. For tests we additionally depend on Cppunit.
Installing with Clang and libc++
Installing with Clang should work fine as long as you're using the libstdc++ from GCC. Installing with libc++ exposes a bug in Boost (#7391) that makes the compilation fail. The current workaround is to slightly change Boost (as suggested in the ticket).
Also remember that to build with libc++ you need both Boost and Cppunit compiled with libc++ too. To make it easier to use different installations of Boost and Cppunit, you can specify the BOOST_ROOT and CPPUNIT_ROOT environment variables, before running cmake, to point to the directories containing the libraries.
