This archive contains pre-configured CodeSynthesis XSD source code with all its dependencies (except Xerces-C++). It allows you to build the XSD compiler in non-interactive mode (that is, without answering any configuration questions). The following GNU tools are required to build XSD. Any fairly recent GNU/Linux distribution should have all of them already installed: GNU bash >= 2.00 (bash --version) http://www.gnu.org/software/bash/ GNU make >= 3.81 (make --version) http://www.gnu.org/software/make/ GNU g++ >= 4.2.0 (g++ --version) http://gcc.gnu.org/ The build system expects you to have the Xerces-C++ library version 3.0.0 or later built and installed in a location where the C++ compiler will find them by default (normally /usr/lib/ and /usr/local/lib/). Alternatively, you can provide include (-I) and library (-L) paths for this library via the CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS variables, respectively. The build system supports the following variables: CC (defaults to gcc if not set) CXX (defaults to g++ if not set) AR (defaults to ar if not set) RANLIB (defaults to ranlib if not set) CPPFLAGS CFLAGS CXXFLAGS LDFLAGS LIBS EXTERNAL_LIBCUTL For example: $ make CC=gcc-4.8 CXX=g++-4.8 CFLAGS=-O3 CXXFLAGS=-O3 -j 4 The EXTERNAL_LIBCUTL variable allows you to use an external build of libcutl, for example, if you already have this library installed. The valid values are 'n' (default) and 'y'. If you would like to see the full compiler/linker/etc., command lines, you can add verbose=1 to the make command line: $ make verbose=1 After the build is complete, the XSD compiler can be found in the xsd/xsd/ sub-directory and the runtime headers in the xsd/libxsd/ sub-directory. You can install the XSD compiler, runtime library, and documentation with the install target, for example: $ make install_prefix=/usr install You can fine-tune the installation locations with the following make variables: install_prefix default is /usr/local install_data_prefix default is install_prefix install_exec_prefix default is install_prefix install_bin_dir default is install_exec_prefix/bin install_sbin_dir default is install_exec_prefix/sbin install_lib_dir default is install_exec_prefix/lib install_data_dir default is install_data_prefix/share install_inc_dir default is install_data_prefix/include install_doc_dir default is install_data_dir/doc install_man_dir default is install_data_dir/man install_info_dir default is install_data_dir/info You can also create a distribution package with the XSD compiler binary, source code for the runtime library and examples, as well as the documentation using the dist and dist-win targets, for example: $ make dist_prefix=/tmp/xsd-x.y.z dist Or, for Windows: $ make dist_prefix=/tmp/xsd-x.y.z dist-win The build system also supports the test and clean targets, for example: $ make test $ make clean Send bug reports or any other feedback to the xsd-users@codesynthesis.com mailing list.
