Hell, world!

Posted by – September 3, 2009

I am supposed to learn enough libtool and autotools to package our current library and utilities in a “do it right” way. Some of my favourite things about this task so far:

  • From the libtool manual:

    But of course, that would be too simple, so many systems require that you run the ranlib command on the resulting library (to give it better karma, or something)

  • There’s a libtool demo of a trivial Hello World program & library packaged with autotools. configure.ac and Makefile.am are about 250 lines put together.
  • The program part of the demo is called “hello”, but the library is called “hell”
