ObexFTP Readme
==============

Introduction
------------

ObexFTP implements the Object Exchange (OBEX) file transfer feature for
clients and servers.

The standard is defined in more detail in section K12.5 (Profiles: OBEX FTP)
in Bluetooth V1.1 Profile Specifications.

ObexFTP works out-of-the-box with all transports supported by OpenOBEX.
Currently there is IrDA, Bluetooth, USB and network (TCP) transport support.
ObexFTP also comes with ready to use custom transport support for many mobile
phones serial cables.

It's well tested with Siemens and Sony/Ericsson mobile phones. But then most
Motorola and Sharp (generic) as well as Samsung phones will work too, please
contact the author if not.

This ObexFTP distribution contains libraries as well as some applications.

Applications to access e.g. Flex. Memory and Multimedia- /Secure Digital Card
memory on mobile equipment:

 - obexftp    - all in one client application (heavy on options)
 - Symlinks to obexftp for default operations:
   - obexls   - list the mobiles contents
   - obexget  - copy files(s) to mobile
   - obexput  - copy files(s) from mobile
   - obexrm   - remove files on the mobile
 - obexftpd   - obex ftp server application (experimental)

Applications to hack Siemens mobile equipment using datalink cable

 - bfb_keysim - simulate key presses on the mobile
 - bfb_eeprom - list and examine the user eeprom on the mobile

Library parts to be used in other applications

 - obexftp     - high level abstraction of OBEX FTP (SYNC, PUSH also) protocol
 - multicobex  - cable OBEX support for many phones (i.e. Siemens BFB and BFC
                 Sony/Ericsson, Motorola and generic (Sharp) modes)
 - bfb         - Siemens mobile datalink cable protocol layer


Short Installation Instructions
-------------------------------

To compile and install:
	# ./configure
	# make
	# make install (as superuser)

If you plan to use a Siemens x45 or x55 series (e.g. S45 or C55,
not S65) use
	CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -DCOMPAT_S45" ./configure
instead

Consider using pedantic error checking:
	CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -Werror" ./configure

If compiling doesn't work, try to disable some of the language bindings on
configure.
	--disable-perl --disable-python --disable-ruby --disable-tcl


Building from CVS/SVN/GIT
-------------------------

Prepare the source tree with:
	# autoreconf --install --force

If that doesn't work or you want to control the individual steps run:

	# aclocal --force -I m4
	# libtoolize --copy --force	||	glibtoolize --copy --force
	# autoconf --force
	# autoheader --force
	# automake --add-missing --copy --force-missing

Then do a full configure and make:
	# ./configure --enable-swig --enable-builddocs && make


Further Development
-------------------

If this tool lacks support for your phone or just won't work quite right
please let me know. Development will focus on your needs.

This package lacks advanced examples using the bindings. There are some 3rd
party GUIs and other projects like a obex file system though. Please see the
OpenOBEX / ObexFTP web site for details.

Developers are free to use the bindings as well as obexftp, multicobex and
bfb libraries. Please join the mailing list and keep in touch - You'll
recieve pre-releases and support. That way your application can benefit from
the newest library features and further development can focus on your needs.


Debugging
---------

remove all ObexFTP installations from your system. Build using
	CFLAGS="-DOBEXFTP_DEBUG=5" ./configure
	make clean ; make
Start debugging using
	./apps/obexftp [...]

You might want to try picking up compiler warnings too (and mail them to me)
	CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -g -Wall -Wmissing-declarations -Wmissing-prototypes \
		-Werror" ./configure
	make clean ; make
Please mail me all warnings and errors, if any.

The bindings use language-native installers which are missing the uninstall
targets. Our distcheck will boldly ignore those files.
