Introduction

Instead of downloading the Wonder binaries, working from the latest source code directly can have some advantages such as:

  • Ability to browse the source code and learn from the wisdom and experience of the WO committers
  • Put breakpoints in and step through Wonder source when debugging your projects
  • Provide opportunities to submit patches to bugs you might find in Wonder
  • Add logging statements in Wonder source so you can better understand what is going when tracking down hard to find bugs

Downloading Wonder Source from CVS

  • Decide on a directory where you will maintain the latest Wonder source tree on your hard drive. I have a directory '~/WonderLatest' in my home folder.
  • Open a terminal shell and navigate to the directory
    cd ~/WonderLatest
    
  • Next perform initial checkout of Wonder source tree from CVS head using the following command. This creates a folder named Wonder
    cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@wonder.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/wonder co -P Wonder
    

Build and Install Wonder

  • Follow the instructions in the BUILD.txt document in the Wonder directory
  • No labels
