Step 1 : Install your first package
We suppose you need to use a package, for instance because a colleague informs you about an interesting one. The example consider the pid-rpath package but any one can be deployed the same way.
The process can take a long time because the
deploy command installs the target package and all its dependencies, and if needed build everything as required. In the case of pid-rpath, it should be really short because the package has only two dependencies.
You can have a look at the result in
<pid-worskspace>/install/<platform>/pid-rpath. As you may see there is a folder with a version number. By default this is the last available version of the package that is installed. From now, we denote this version number with the tag
You can see the binaries available in
lib folders. If
bin folder does not appear this is because pid-rpath package does not generate examples programs.
1.1 Build an existing package by hand
If pid-rpath has been installed from a source PID package, you can generate these examples:
- Look if the source package exist in your workspace:
- If the content of the package appears, it means that you have the source package installed. Then you can do:
Your package is configured to build the example programs.
- Now build the examples by simply entering:
The build process takes place and installs the resulting binairies in
<pid-worskspace>/install/<platform>/pid-rpath/<version>/bin. You can now launch the binairies the usual way.
You can repeat the operation as many time as required.
Now let’s see how to create a new package.
