Requirements

Required software components

  • C++ compiler, e.g. gcc
  • Qt 4.5 or newer (both libraries and development files/tools)

Optional components

Note
PostgreSQL Server installation is not needed for building Predicate or software that uses Predicate. The server is needed only for running the actual database service. Any installaton on separate (e.g. remote) machine can be reused.


  • libmysql client (both the access library and development files)

Get the source code

See the Download page. Download Predicate source code as explained on the Download page. The root directory of the source code will be referred as {predicate-source-dir}.

Build recipe

Configuration

For your convenience, cmakepredicate.sh script has been prepared with default configuration settings. You can find it in tools/ subdirectory of the source code. Use it as follows:

mkdir {predicate-build-dir}

You can set $PREDICATE_INSTALL_PREFIX environment.

Better pick your {predicate-build-dir} outside of the source code.

cd {predicate-build-dir}
{predicate-source-dir}/tools/cmakepredicate.sh {predicate-source-dir}

Build

You need to type the above configuration command only once, to configure the cmake-based buildsystem. Then just type:

 make
 make install
