Files in directory jni/3dcanvas from the latest check-in
Building under most UNIX systems is easy, just run the configure script
and then run make. For more information about the build process, see
the tcl/unix/README file in the Tcl src dist. The following minimal
example will install the extension in the /opt/tcl directory.
$ cd canvas3d
$ ./configure --prefix=/opt/tcl
$ make install
The recommended method to build extensions under windows is to use the
Msys + Mingw build process. This provides a Unix-style build while
generating native Windows binaries. Using the Msys + Mingw build tools
means that you can use the same configure script as per the Unix build
to create a Makefile.
If you have VC++ then you may wish to use the files in the win
subdirectory and build the extension using just VC++. These files have
been designed to be as generic as possible but will require some
additional maintenance by the project developer to synchronise with
the TEA configure.in and Makefile.in files. Instructions for using the
VC++ makefile are written in the first part of the Makefile.vc
The installation of a TEA package is structure like so:
PACKAGEx.y (dependent .dll files on Windows)
pkgIndex.tcl (.so|.dll files)
The main .so|.dll library file gets installed in the versioned PACKAGE
directory, which is OK on all platforms because it will be directly
referenced with by 'load' in the pkgIndex.tcl file. Dependent DLL files on
Windows must go in the bin directory (or other directory on the user's
PATH) in order for them to be found.
