Building the C Code


Once you have your basic user interface constructed tell Glade to save the project (using the Save button--this updates the file that contains the XML description of the interface) and then to build the project (using the Build button).

Start up a terminal window, such as the gnome-terminal, and change to the project directory. There you should see an executable file called autogen.sh. This shell script takes care of the initial configuration of your package, running automake to automatically generate the appropriate support files for the configuration. It also runs the appropriate automake components leaving you with a collection of Makefiles.



$ cd Projects/gword
$ ./autogen.sh
**Warning**: I am going to run `configure' with no arguments. 
If you wish to pass any to it, please specify them on the
`./autogen.sh' command line.

You should update your own `aclocal.m4' by adding the necessary
macro packages gettext.m4, lcmessage.m4 and progtest.m4 from
the directory `/aclocal'

Now type `make' to compile the package.

You can now simply run the make command to perform the compilation (making use of the generated Makefiles). Once completed, run the command src/gword to start up your application.



$ make
$ src/gword

And that's all there is to it.
