Compiling a C library on US?

Recommended Posts

I've got a web app I want to work with, but I haven't "compiled" anything before.

 

The instructions in the readme file say:

 

Building webapp
-------------------
cd webapp

Build both the C library and the examples:
./configure
( cd lib && make build_tables )
make 

Build and run the tests:
./configure
( cd lib && make build_tables )
make check

copy the webappy executable to the same directory as the php scripts

 

Is this something I can do on US? If so, how?

 

I can't find anything in a forum search or on Unicenter on this subject...

The application is here:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/holdem-tools/

 

It is described as "a web based Texas Holdem odds calculator. The front end is generated using PHP and JavaScript and makes use of the scriptaculous library. The backend is powered by the poker-eval library, which is written in C."

 

Poker-eval can be found here:

http://pokersource.sourceforge.net/

 

I've never had to compile anything before on any type of server, so I'm at a complete loss...

Not enough information is listed on their website so i really dont know, but from what i think i dont think you need a server to run it... You just need those packages... so i am guessing it wont work unless you know what you are really doing.. Try asking them for support...

Well, the issue really is how to "compile" libraries...

 

As I understand it, it requires "shell access" to a server, but I'm not sure how to get that with US...is there a way?

C...I'm going to have to dig around a bit...if I find a solution, I will post it back here, for future generations!

The commands in the readme assume that you are running linux, they are linux build commands used to compile applications from source. If you want to run that application you either have to get a box with linux installed or see if it is possible to compile the program under windows.
