LibCVD will compile on any reasonable unixy environment, with a reasonable C++ compiler (e.g. gcc version >= 3.1) and GNU Make. Additionally, libCVD supports both normal and cross compilers. It is known to work on:
-Well tested (current):
-Has worked on (current status unknown):
The normal system works:
./configure make make install
libCVD fully supports parallel builds (
make -j2 for instance).
There are a few known library bugs which prevent the libraries working with libCVD
There are a few known compiler bugs which affect libCVD on various platforms.
For Win32 systems, the
build directory contains project files for different versions of Visual Studio. Currently the vc2008 solutin is supported and should work out of the box. There are two projects, one for compiling libcvd and one for installing it into a common directory tree. Both projects assume the existence of three environment variables describing the location of header, library and binary files (for DLLs).
INCLUDEDIRcontains the header files. libcvd headers will be copied into
LIBDIRcontains library files. libcvd static libraries (debug and release verions) will be copied into
BINDIRis not used for libcvd, but would be the default directory for DLLs
libCVD requires at least two libraries to compile:
Both libraries should be moved into the directory tree described by
BINDIR where the libCVD project files will expect them.
libCVD compiles to static libraries for simpler linking and to avoid the _dllexport/_dllimport statements throughout the code.
Configuration of features is manual through a default config file in
build/vc2005/config.h. Edit this file to change your configuration, for example to support other image formats such as PNG.
