2 =======
4 Description
5 -----------
7 libpws provides an API for creating, reading, manipulating and writing
8 Password Safe files, it currently supports version 3 of the Password Safe file
9 format.
11 Build Instructions
12 ------------------
14 libpws requires a POSIX:2004 compatible operating system, it has been tested
15 to work on Linux distributions, FreeBSD, Solaris and Illumos-derived
16 distributions. The following tools and shared libraries are required to build
17 libpws:
19 - GNU make >= 3.81
20 - GNU or BSD install
21 - Nettle
23 Rebuilding the man pages additionally requires the xsltproc tool from libxml2.
25 Before building libpws check the commented macros in the Makefile for any
26 macros you may need to override depending on the used toolchain and operating
27 system.
29 By default, all files will be installed under the "/usr/local" directory, a
30 different installation path prefix can be set via the `prefix` macro. In
31 addition, a second path prefix can be specified via the `DESTDIR` macro which
32 will be prepended to any path, incuding the `prefix` macro path prefix. In
33 contrast to `prefix`, the path specified via the `DESTDIR` macro will only be
34 prepended to paths during installation and not be used for constructing
35 internal paths.
37 The following instructions assume that `make` is GNU make, on some platforms
38 it may be installed under a different name or a non-default path. In order to
39 start the build process run `make all`. After a successful build, run `make
40 install` to install the program, any associated data files and the
41 documentation.
43 Previously built binaries, object files, generated data files and
44 documentation can be removed by running `make clean`, any additional,
45 generated files which are not removed by the `clean` target can be removed by
46 running `make clobber`.

54 Bug Reports
55 -----------
57 When sending bug reports, please always mention the exact version of libpws
58 with which the issue occurs as well as the version of the operating system you
59 are using and make sure that you provide sufficient information to reproduce
60 the issue and include any input, output, any error messages.
62 In case of build issues, please also specify the implementations and versions
63 of the tools and shared libraries used to build the program, in particular the
64 compiler.
66 In case of crashes, please generate a stack trace with a suitable debugger
67 such as gdb, lldb, dbx, or debug after a crash has occurred either by
68 examining the resulting core file or by running the program from the debugger
69 and attach it to the bug report. In order to generate a meaningful stack
70 trace the program as well as any dynamically linked libraries need to be built
71 with debugging information, see the documentation of the used compiler for the
72 required compiler flags. If any of the dynamically linked shared libraries do
73 not contain debugging information, please either install debugging information
74 for these libraries using mechanisms provided by your operating system or
75 rebuild the libraries accordingly. Please refer to the documentation of the
76 debugger for detailed instructions on generating backtraces.
