first attempt to make zeromq compilation optional #19

wants to merge 1 commit into from

2 participants


The option is used like this:
$ ZEROMQ_LIB=/usr/local/lib/libzmq.a make

I am not too sure about how it should be done but at least this method works :)

Julien Ammous added an option to reuse an already compiled zeromq
added ZEROMQ_LIB environment variable, usage :
$ ZEROMQ_LIB=/usr/local/lib/libzmq.a make

thanks for sending this in. Let me play with this a bit and see how this works.

There is one problem with this approach: if you are using erlzmq2 as a dependency managed with rebar each time you do a "rebar compile" in your application folder it will run make in erlzmq2 meaning that for this patch to work effectively you need to have something like that in your main application Makefile:
export ZEROMQ_LIB=/usr/local/lib/libzmq.a
That is what I am currently doing but it kinda feels ugly :(
