Quick Install Release:

# Uncomment one of the following lines to choose your OS
# export OS_NAME="linux"
# export OS_NAME="osx"

# Fetch the latest release from GitHub
$ curl -s -L | grep "href.*coreir-${OS_NAME}.tar.gz" | cut -d \" -f 2 | xargs -I {} wget"{}"

# Unpack and install
$ mkdir coreir_release;
$ tar -xf coreir-${OS_NAME}.tar.gz -C coreir_release --strip-components 1;
$ cd coreir_release && sudo make install && cd ..

If you do not want to sudo make install:

Option 1: you could provide use cmake DCMAKE\_INSTALL\_PREFIX=\<path\> ..

Option 2:

If you are using osx:

Add export DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=$DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH:<path_to_coreir_release>/lib to your ~/.bashrc or ~/.profile If this does not work, you may have System Integrity Protection enabled on your Mac.

If you are using linux:

Add export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:<path_to_coreir_release>/lib to your ~/.bashrc or ~/.profile
