Compile and install the library using the following commands:
% ./configure % make % su # make install # ^D %
If you are having problems compiling pcre++, try suppliying some flags to the configure script, for example the location of the pcre library or it's headers. Try ./configure --help for a summary of all available options.
If you want to use this class library you have two choices: Either you compile and install it as usual and link your binary against it:
g++ -c yoursource.c `pcre-config --cflags` `pcre++-config --cflags` g++ yoursource.o `pcre-config --libs` `pcre++-config --libs` -o yourprogram
The class API documentation is available as a unix manpage. To read it, type:
man 3 Pcre
You can also read the documentation online.
