Source Code

This is the main download page for the ACP Core system. This is needed for any of the Projects detailed on this site.

Current Release: ACP 0.2.

Installation Procedure

  1. Download the acp-[version].tar.gz file.
  2. tar xvfz acp-[version].tar.gz
  3. cd acp-[version]
  4. ./configure
  5. ./makeall
  6. su -c "./makeall install"

On its own, the acp package provides the raw tools which are needed to operate any of ACP Projects. As a test case it, it is suggested that you download the Documentation Project.

Known Supported Platforms

It has been successfully installed on:
  • All Linux Distributions
  • FreeBSD
  • NetBSD
  • Solaris with gcc installed

A port is underway to the Cygwin environment (meaning that ACP could run under Windows - a direct Win32 port has been considered, is still being considered, but is generally thought of as a wholly pointless exercise :-) ... there is nothing in here that excludes it from porting, but the Shared Object/DLL migration would need to be handled, as would some use of the fnmatch function library for pattern matching and pthread usage would need to be reviewed).

The author would be grateful to hear of any issues, suggestions or gripes about individual Operating Systems (success stories would be nice too...).
