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 libtasn1-4.19.0.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

Building the library

We require several tools to build the software, including:

The required software is typically distributed with your operating system, and the instructions for installing them differ. Here are some hints:


sudo apt-get install make git autoconf automake libtool bison
sudo apt-get install texinfo help2man gtk-doc-tools valgrind abigail-tools

PDF manual - Debian <= stretch:

sudo apt-get install texlive-generic-recommended texlive texlive-extra-utils

PDF manual - Debian >= buster:

sudo apt-get install texlive-plain-generic texlive texlive-extra-utils

The next step is to run autoreconf, ./configure, etc:

$ ./bootstrap

Then build the project normally:

$ ./configure
$ make check

Happy hacking!
