“The universal IRC client”
To clone the repository use Git.
$ git clone https://github.com/uhlin/swirc.git
Swirc currently depends on:
Which means that on for example a Debian GNU/Linux system you need to install 4 packages before building:
# apt install libcurl4-openssl-dev libidn11-dev libncursesw5-dev libssl-dev
And on Mac OS X, provided that Homebrew is installed, issue:
$ brew install libressl
On the BSDs and GNU/Linux the configure script will per default generate make definitions that expects that the C compiler GCC is installed on your system. A make utility must also be present. Regarding Mac OS X I suggest that you install Xcode. Due to certain circumstances I no longer can confirm that building for OS X works.
$ cd /path/to/swirc
Installing it (under /usr/local):
$ sudo make install
To build Swirc for Windows you must have Visual Studio.
So, fire up the command prompt for Visual Studio where the needed tools (the compiler, etc.) are loaded into the environment. The regular command prompt won't work. Then:
nmake -f Makefile.vc
To make a distribution of Swirc use:
nmake -f Makefile.vc dist
$ make clean
$ nmake -f Makefile.vc clean
