It's developed from ground up with the vision to compile just fine on your platform. Be sure to link against `libgd` when compiling which is also needed when running the binary. Supported compilers are `GCC` and `Clang`, others may work but aren't tested. All files include the C standard headers. An exception is compilation on `Mac OS X`, where defines in the sources ensure importing `<Foundation/Foundation.h>`. In other words: on the Mac, the resulting binary is a Foundation tool. We use Mac OS X and Linux for AnsiLove/C development. You'll find a Xcode project file in this repository. Additional there's a shell script that builds AnsiLove/C on Ubuntu, it should compile on other distros as well. Feel free to fork and add custom build scripts for your own platform, [Homebrew]( formulas, Linux packages, whatever. +# This is the patch for building on Ubuntu. +Use shbuild/ + # Why C? There were many reasons, most notably PHP interpreter independence and performance. A solid C foundation is just perfect for creating libraries and frameworks and it can easily embedded into applications. We already mentioned portability. What else? We wanted evolution. AnsiLove/C should not be understood as a port. It takes many different approaches (like processing binary font dumps or generating @2x Retina images), it is overall improved and introduces new features. While results tend to be the same, the codebase does not have much in common with it's ancestor.
