See the documentation in the doc/ directory for information about how
to use the ctemplate library.

COMPILING
---------
To compile test applications with these classes, run ./configure
followed by make.  To install these header files on your system, run
'make install'.  (On Windows, the instructions are different; see
README.windows.)  See INSTALL for more details.

This code should work on any modern C++ system.  It has been tested on
Linux (Ubuntu, Fedora, RedHat), Solaris 10 x86, FreeBSD 6.0, OS X 10.3
and 10.4, and Windows under both VC++7 and VC++8.

There are a few Windows-specific details; see README.windows for more
information.

CTEMPLATE AND THREADS
---------------------
The ctemplate library has thread support, so it works properly in a
threaded environment.  For this to work, if you link libraries with
-lctemplate you may find you also need to add -pthread (or, on some
systems, -pthreads, and on others, -lpthread) to get the library to
compile.  If you leave out the -pthread, you'll see errors like this:

   symbol lookup error: /usr/local/lib/libctemplate.so.0: undefined symbol: pthread_rwlock_init

If your code isn't multi-threaded, you can instead use the
ctemplate_nothread library:
   -lctemplate_nothreads

To summarize, there are two ways to link in ctemlpate in non-threaded
applications.  For instance:
   1) gcc -o my_app my_app.o -lctemplate -pthread
   2) gcc -o my_app my_app.o -lctemplate_nothreads

If your application uses threads, you should use form (1).
