libsigc++ Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies
  4. libsigc++-2.10.4.tar.xz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).
README
libsigc++ -- The Typesafe Callback Framework for C++

General information:

   libsigc++ implements a typesafe callback system for standard C++. It
   allows you to define signals and to connect those signals to any
   callback function, either global or a member function, regardless of
   whether it is static or virtual.

   libsigc++ is used by gtkmm to wrap the GTK+ signal system. It does not
   depend on GTK+ or gtkmm.

Compatibility:

   Compatible compilers must support C++11, such as the decltype() specifier.

   All releases are tested with the gcc (g++) compiler.

# Building

Whenever possible, you should use the official binary packages approved by the
supplier of your operating system, such as your Linux distribution.

## Building on Windows

See MSVC_NMake/README.txt.

## Building from a release tarball

It's easiest to build with Meson, if the tarball was made with Meson,
and to build with Autotools, if the tarball was made with Autotools.
Then you don't have to use maintainer-mode.

How do you know how the tarball was made? If it was made with Meson,
it contains files in untracked/build_scripts/, untracked/docs/ and possibly
other subdirectories of untracked/.

### Building from a tarball with Meson

Don't call the builddir 'build'. There is a directory called 'build' with
files used by Autotools.

If the tarball was made with Autotools, you must enable maintainer-mode:
  $ meson --prefix=/some_directory --libdir=lib -Dmaintainer-mode=true your_builddir .
If the tarball was made with Meson:
  $ meson --prefix=/some_directory --libdir=lib your_builddir .

Then
  $ cd your_builddir
  $ ninja
  $ ninja install
You can run the tests like so:
  $ ninja test

### Building from a tarball with Autotools

If the tarball was made with Autotools:
  $ ./configure --prefix=/some_directory
If the tarball was made with Meson, you must enable maintainer-mode:
  $ ./autogen.sh --prefix=/some_directory

Then
  $ make
  $ make install
You can build the examples and tests, and run the tests, like so:
  $ make check

## Building from git

Building from git can be difficult so you should prefer building from
a release tarball unless you need to work on the libsigc++ code itself.

jhbuild can be a good help

  https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/Jhbuild

### Building from git with Meson

Maintainer-mode is enabled by default when you build from a git clone.

Don't call the builddir 'build'. There is a directory called 'build' with
files used by Autotools.

  $ meson --prefix=/some_directory --libdir=lib your_builddir .
  $ cd your_builddir
  $ ninja
  $ ninja install
You can run the tests like so:
  $ ninja test
You can create a tarball like so:
  $ ninja dist

### Building from git with Autotools

  $ ./autogen.sh --prefix=/some_directory
  $ make
  $ make install
You can build the examples and tests, and run the tests, like so:
  $ make check
You can create a tarball like so:
  $ make distcheck
or
  $ make dist
