tin 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 tin-2.6.1.tar.xz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).
Quick Install:

configure to your local setup (have a look at):
	./configure --help (or ./conf-tin)

check your local setup in:

compile with:
	make build (or cd src && make)

install with:
	make install

Install and use at your own risk.

For a more detailed description of all the configure options read

Note that tin requires a valid fully qualified domain name for the host
GO AND GET ONE AND CONFIGURE YOUR HOST -- NOW! (This will prevent problems
with other software, too.) Otherwise users may get "Invalid Sender" error
messages and won't be able to post using the internal inews.

As the included pcre library is slightly outdated linking against a newer
version is recommended (configure --with-pcre ; see doc/INSTALL for details).
