What is ePay?

ePay is an experimental new digital currency that enables anonymous, instant payments to anyone, anywhere in the world. ePay uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority: managing transactions and issuing money are carried out collectively by the network. ePay Core is the name of open source software which enables the use of this currency.

For more information, as well as an immediately useable, binary version of the ePay Core software, see http://www.epay.io/downloads.

Building process

compiling ePay from git

Use the autogen script to prepare the build environment.

./autogen.sh
./configure
make

precompiled binaries

Precompiled binaries are available at github, see https://github.com/epayproject/epay-binaries

Always verify the signatures and checksums.

Development tips and tricks

compiling for debugging

Run configure with the --enable-debug option, then make. Or run configure with CXXFLAGS="-g -ggdb -O0" or whatever debug flags you need.

debug.log

If the code is behaving strangely, take a look in the debug.log file in the data directory; error and debugging message are written there.

The -debug=... command-line option controls debugging; running with just -debug will turn on all categories (and give you a very large debug.log file).

The Qt code routes qDebug() output to debug.log under category "qt": run with -debug=qt to see it.

testnet and regtest modes

Run with the -testnet option to run with "play epays" on the test network, if you are testing multi-machine code that needs to operate across the internet.

If you are testing something that can run on one machine, run with the -regtest option. In regression test mode blocks can be created on-demand; see qa/rpc-tests/ for tests that run in -regtest mode.

DEBUG_LOCKORDER

ePay Core is a multithreaded application, and deadlocks or other multithreading bugs can be very difficult to track down. Compiling with -DDEBUG_LOCKORDER (configure CXXFLAGS="-DDEBUG_LOCKORDER -g") inserts run-time checks to keep track of what locks are held, and adds warning to the debug.log file if inconsistencies are detected.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
