This chapter describes how to build all the libraries and executables needed for CoolRay
If you have a binary distribution, you can skip this chapter.
In order to compile CoolRay, you should have a C++ compiler installed. GNU C++ 2.95.2 was tested and works fine.
Make sure, you have the OCoreLib installed. OCoreLib comes with a seperate package and must be available in order to compile and run CoolRay.
Extract the archive with:
tar -xzvf CoolRay-<Version>.tgz
Start the configuration by invoking the script "configure". This script tests your environment. If you have freetype and/or imagelib installed, it is detected and the support is enabled.
If there are problems, please consult "configure --help" for more options.
Now simply start "make". When the build is complete, there will be a executable in the directory ./source/os named coolray.
CoolRay provides files for building a Windows version with Microsoft Visual C++. The files can be found in ./source/os/windows/win32
Open the file CoolRay.argl and select Project/Compile...
Follow the steps as described in "Linux".
