The following defines the requirements in order to compile and use the X3D libraries.
First some information about the projects.
- In order to rebuild everything, you will need the documentation
coming with libx3d (see here:
There is a script (dev/extract-nodes) and a parser (utilities/src/html-to-header.c++)
which reads the HTML files from the X3D abstract ISO-IEC-19775 and the DTD file.
Out of those, it generates the base/include/x3d/objects.h, base/src/objects.c++
and each base/src/obj_<letter>.c++ files. These files represent the complete
handling of the X3D dataset.
- You will need a multi-pass compiling process if you want to
regenerate everything. This is because the Makefile.am need to be complete at the
time you create the configure script. Yet in libx3d, you need to generate many files
in the base to handle the dataset in a way as efficient as possible. And these being
dynamically created the Makefile.am loses a bit... it would need to also be dynamic.
Okay! You won't have to worry about that if you just use the existing files.
Here is a list of the libraries which are required with libx3d.
- fltk 2.x (for the x3dviewer)
||Note that under Debian as of Nov 23, 2005, I had to recompile libxml++-2.6
to be able to use it without it crashing.
