A working development environment:

  • On Linux/Unix systems, this means having GCC, the GNU Compiler Collection packages, as well as libraries for these languages (libstdc++, libgcj, glibc, etc).
  • On Windows systems, please use Cygwin or MinGW.

Please refer to:

files for more detailed information on software dependencies required to build presage.

A full list of required and optional software can be found in the README">README.


Stable releases are available for download from SourceForge.

SVN access

You can obtain the very latest ``bleeding edge'' source code directly from our SVN repository.

Please note that the latest sources may be in an experimental state and thus not suitable for general usage (in practice, however, the latest trunk is always in pretty good shape).

Please refer to the source code repository section on the Development page for additional instructions.

Building presage

Presage is currently available in source code form only.

Building is just as easy as:

make all

To run the test suite:

To install, just say:
