BUILDING, TESTING, INSTALLING

Unix

Using Autotools: ./autogen.sh # in ${srcdir}, if obtained from SVN ${srcdir}/configure # in build dir

Using CMake: cmake ${srcdir} # in build dir

Now, all versions: make make check make install # as root ldconfig # as root

Win32

If you use Microsoft Visual C++ (7.1 or later) compiler, you can build GEOS using NMAKE program and provided makefile.vc files.

If you are building from SVN checkout, first run: autogen.bat Then:

nmake /f makefile.vc MSVC_VER=1400

where 1400 is version number of Visual C++ compiler, here Visual C++ 8.0 from Visual Studio 2005 (supported versions are 1300, 1310, 1400 and 1500). The bootstrap.bat step is required to generate a couple of header files.

In order to build debug configuration of GEOS, additional flag DEBUG=1 is required:

nmake /f makefile.vc MSVC_VER=1400 DEBUG=1

CLIENT APPLICATIONS

Using the C interface (recommended)

To compile programs against the C lib (recommended):

CFLAGS += geos-config --cflags LDFLAGS += geos-config --ldflags -lgeos_c

include

Example usage:

capi/geostest.c contains basic usage examples.

Using the C++ interface (discouraged)

To compile programs against the C++ lib:

CFLAGS += geos-config --cflags LDFLAGS += geos-config --ldflags -lgeos

include

Example usage:

doc/example.cpp contains basic usage examples.

Scripting language bindings

Ruby bindings are fully supported. To build, use the --enable-ruby option when configuring:

./configure ... --enable-ruby

PHP bindings are fully supported. To build, use the --enable-php option when configuring:

./configure ... --enable-php

Since version 3.0, the Python bindings are unsupported. Recommended options:

  1. Become or recruit a new maintainer.
  2. Use Shapely (http://pypi.python.org/pypi/Shapely) with Python versions 2.4 or greater.
  3. Simply call functions from libgeos_c via Python ctypes.
