Preparing libhomeradar installation

Download the latest version first and unzip / untar the downloaded files. Copy the (or libhomeradar.dll) to one of your library folders (/usr/lib) or (/usr/local/lib) or to the Windows library folder.
Copy the libhomeradar.h to /usr/includes/ (or whereever you want) and copy the *.txt files (databases) into a directory of your choice. You need these databases later for the libhomeradar_init() or the libhomeradar_load_databases() functions.

If the libhomeradar.h is not within the standard system includes path, you have to add the -I<path to libhomeradar.h> option to your gcc commandline.


Preparing your program

To include the support of libhomeradar you must compile your programm with the -lhomeradar option (gcc syntax). The headerfile libhomeradar.h must also be available for the compiler and of cause the library (extension .so / .dll) should be available for your linker.

LINUX users: To test your program within a special path you can use the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environement variable to add the path to the systems library path. ( export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=./ )
