This file describes the steps required to build this bundle on a supported
system running the Solaris or the Illumos kernel. See README for more
information about the tested configurations.
When Illumos was created, the Solaris kernel already included the File Events
Notification API. Hence, the fen_monitor should be available on any system
running Solaris (> 10) or an Illumos kernel.
Additionally, a Solaris/Illumos system should be able to use the following
* inotify_monitor, depending on the kernel version.
So far, however, the author has only tested this release on SmartOS. Feedback
on different Solaris/Illumos systems is much appreciated and will benefit other
users as well.
See the INSTALL file for detailed information about how to configure and install
fswatch is a C++ program and a C++ compiler compliant with the C++11 standard is
required to compile it. Check the documentation of your distribution to learn
how to install the required software.
The configure script enforces an ordered compiler search list and clang++ will
be used first if available. If you do not like this choice and wish to use
another compiler set the value of the CXX environment variable to the name of
your compiler binary. If, for example, you wish to use the g++ compiler, then
use this command to configure the build:
$ ./configure CXX=g++
