Log for C++ installation.
Log4cpp has been succesfully build on Linux (g++ >= 2.91), Tru64 UNIX (DEC++) and Win32 (MSVC6++). Very likely, it will work on other POSIX platforms too. If you do use log4cpp on a platform not listed yet, please drop us a note.
As of version 0.2.0 log4cpp can be build using configure on platforms supporting it. Simply do:
This will install log4cpp under /usr/local. To install in another localation specify --prefix=<location> when running configure.
On Win32, use the project files in the msvc6 dir to build the library and the test programs.
The primary development platform for log4cpp is RedHat Linux 7.0, which contains g++ version "2.96 20000731 (Red Hat Linux 7.0)". As a consequence new versions may occasinally break compatibility with older g++ versions. Please report these compile problems as bugs. The aim is to have log4cpp compile on GNU/Linux, BSD and UNIX platforms with g++ >= 2.91. As of 0.2.2 Win32 has been added to this list.
For the generation of documentation you need to have installed the Doxygen package created by Dimitry van Heesch (see http://www.stack.nl/~dimitri/doxygen/index.html). The current documenation has been generated with Doxygen 1.2.5, older versions may or may not work.
