-Installation/Compilation instructions for "iemmatrix"
-1) linux (and other autoconf-systems):
- "cd" into iemmatrix/
- run "./autogen.sh"
- run "./configure" (see "./configure --help" for valid options)
- run "make"
- run "make install"
- this should install iemmatrix into /usr/local/lib/pd (unless you specify otherwise)
- the dynamic-lib (iemmatrix.pd_linux) is installed into extra/
- the configure-script tries to detect whether you are running a pd>=0.37; if so, the
- help-patches are installed into extra/iemmatrix; if you are running an old version
- of pd, the help-files will be installed into doc/5.reference/iemmatrix
-2) mac OS-X:
- there is nothing special in the code, so it should compile out of the
- box (for generic instructions, please see "1) linux")
- building with a special version of Pd:
- to build iemmatrix with your special version of Pd, you should specify the path to your Pd ressources
- (e.g. "./configure --with-pd=/Applications/Pd.app/Contents/Resources")
- if you want to build a multi-arch binary you have to specify this as well
- (e.g. "./configure --enable-fat-binary=i386,ppc --with-extension=d_fat")
- i don't have any irix machine at hand, so i don't know whether it works
- but again, since iemmatrix does not use anything special, it should work out of the box
- try using configure in iemmatrix/src
- (for further details please see "1) linux")
- with MinGW installed, you probably might be able to use the configure in iemmatrix/src
- users have reported that they were able to build it (with problems)
- i will support a makefile for msvc as soon as i boot into windows again
-CrossCompilation for w32 with MinGW-w64 (http://www.mingw.org) on linux-systems
- you need a cross-compilation tool-chain for windows (there is a debian-package mingw-w64)
- run "./configure" and specify the path to your windows installation of pd
- the simplest way is to give the PDPATH via the "--with-pd=PDPATH" flag; you have to make
- sure that the pd-sources are in PDPATH/src and the compiled pd-binaries in PDPATH/bin
- if those are scattered across you filesystem you can alternatively give explicitely the paths
- to your "m_pd.h" (with --includedir) and to your "pd.lib" (with --libdir)
- don't forget to override the default extension ("pd_linux" on linux-systems) with the more appropriate "dll".
- on bash this looks like:
- % ./configure --with-extension=dll --host=i686-w64-mingw32 --with-pd=/path/to/w32-pd/
- now run "make" and enjoy.
-5) FreeBSD et al:
- i don't know, but why shouldn't it run there ?
- try autotools (see "1) linux" for more information)
- and report any success or failure

+Installation/Compilation instructions for "iemmatrix"
+iemmatrix uses the *autoconf* build system.
+For generic build instructions, please see INSTALL.txt
+in order to compile iemmatrix, you will need some libraries/applications installed.
+Some of these dependencies are optional.
+If they are present during compilation, iemmatrix will have certain functionality
+enabled, which might be missing otherwise.
+ - puredata
+ make sure you also have the development files (headers)
+ - GNU scientific library (aka gsl) [optional]
+ needed for higher maths, including eigenvalues and singular-value decomposition
+ - FFTW (Fast Fourier Transform) [optional]
+ fast, high-precision FFTs; if not present, iemmatrix will use Pd's internal FFT
+ - sndfile (reading/writing audio files) [optional]
+ for reading soundfiles into matrices (many soundfiles are supported)
+ - autotools, libtool, gettext
+ thats the basic build-system
+ - a compiler, linker,...
+ tested with
+ - GCC (the GNU compiler collection)
+ - Clang
+Make sure that each step succeeds, before proceeding to the next one!
+ $ ./autogen.sh
+ $ ./configure
+ $ make
+./configure will need to find the Pd-headers (and on some platforms the Pd-library).
+If these files are in a non-standard location (e.g. on W32 and OSX),
+you have to manually tell it where to look for them, using the `--with-pd` flag
+and pointing it to the directory that contains the 'bin/' and 'src/' (or 'include/')
+folders of your Pd-distribution.
+ $ ./configure --with-pd=/Applications/Pd-0.45-4.app/Contents/Resources
+Once `make` has succeeded, you will have a `iemmatrix` binary in the (hidden)
+The ordinary way to install, is by running the following with the proper priviliges
+(e.g. as root):
+ # make install
+This will install the entire iemmatrix into /usr/local/lib/pd/extra/iemmatrix.
+On systems that have no standard filesystem layout for Pd-externals (e.g. W32 and OSX),
+this is not exactly what you want.
+Instead, you can use the following to collect all installation data into a single directory:
+ $ make install DESTDIR=$(pwd)/ pkglibdir=iemmatrix
+This will create a new directory `iemmatrix` (in your current directory),
+containing all binaries and abstractions needed.
+You can then take this directory, and put it into a place, where Pd will look for it:
+ - linux: `~/pd-externals` (e.g. `/home/frodo/pd-externals`)
+ - OSX : `~/Library/Pd` (e.g. `/Users/frodo/Pd`)
+ - W32 : `%AppData%\Pd` (e.g. `C:\Documents and Settings\frodo\Application Data\Pd`)
+A full list of default search paths for externals, can be found at
+`iemmatrix` is available as Debian package
+ # aptitude install pd-iemmatrix
+To install all dependencies for compiling iemmatrix yourself, use:
+ # apt-get build-dep pd-iemmatrix
+ # aptitude install automake1.11 autoconf puredata libfftw3-dev libsndfile1-dev libgsl0-dev
+Most dependencies are available via `brew`
+Install them using
+ $ brew install gsl --universal
+ $ brew install fftw --universal
+ $ brew install libsndfile --universal
+When running iemmatrix' configure, make sure to specify the path to Pd.
+If you want to build universal binaries (e.g. both 32bit (i386) and 64bit (x86_64)),
+you can specify the `--enable-fat-binary` flag.
+ $ ./configure --with-pd=/Applications/Pd-0.45-4.app/Contents/Resources --enable-fat-binary=i386,x86_64
+Note: when building fat binaries, all dependencies must be fat too.
+The only sane way to build iemmatrix for W32 using autotools,
+is currently by using `MinGW-w64` as a cross-compilation environment on linux.
+Debian (and derivates) provides packages for this:
+ # aptitude install mingw-w64 mingw-w64-i686-dev mingw-w64-tools binutils-mingw-w64
+Run "./configure" and specify the path to your W32 installation of Pd
+(where you unzipped the W32 package of Pd) using the `--with-pd` flag.
+Make sure that the Pd-sources are in PDPATH/src and the compiled pd-binaries in PDPATH/bin.
+If they are scattered across you filesystem you can alternatively give explicitely the paths
+to your "m_pd.h" (with `--includedir`) and to your "pd.lib" (with `--libdir`).
+Don't forget to override the default extension ("pd_linux" on linux-systems)
+with the more appropriate "dll".
+On bash this looks like:
+ $ ./configure --with-extension=dll --host=i686-w64-mingw32 --with-pd=/home/frodo/W32/pd-0.46-6
+Now run "make" and enjoy.
+W32 using VisualStudio
+There are outdated VisualStudio project files in src/
+Use them at your own risk.
