Artistic Style Versions

astyle_x.x_linux.tar.gz is the Linux version of Artistic Style. It contains the source code, documentation, and makefiles. The Linux Version compile instructions below give information for compiling the source code.

astyle_x.x_macos.tar.gz is the Mac OS version of Artistic Style. It contains the source code, documentation, Xcode project files, and a makefile. The Mac OS Version compile instructions below give information for compiling the source code.

astyle_x.x_windows.zip is the Windows version of Artistic Style. It contains the source code, documentation, Visual C project files, and an executable. The Windows Version compile instructions below give information for compiling the source code.

astyle_x.x_windows_xp.zip is the Windows XP version of Artistic Style. It is identical to the above Windows version except the executable is compiled to be compatible with Windows XP. If you are not running Windows XP, use the above version.

Only one platform is supported in each distribution package. If you use Artistic Style on more than one platform you will need to download packages for each platform. The main difference in platforms is the build directories and the line endings. Most compilers and development packages will accept any type of line ending. The source code and documentation are the same for all distributions.

Linux Version

CMake Linux

Artistic Style has CMake support for GCC, Clang, and Intel compilers. Other compilers will probably work if the necessary options are set. Refer to the section on Compiler Options for more information.

Since the different builds use the same source files an "out of source" build should be used. The default build is a release version. A debug version must be specifically requested. The the following options are available for building the various configurations.

EXAMPLES

The following examples are assumed to be run from the astyle directory that contains CMakeLists.txt. They show out of source builds that generate makefiles.

To build the console release version:

mkdir  as-gcc-exe
cd  as-gcc-exe
cmake  ../
make

To build the shared debug version:

mkdir  --parents  as-gcc-so
cd  as-gcc-so
cmake  -DBUILD_SHARED_LIBS=1  -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug  ../
make

To build the Java release version using the Clang compiler:

mkdir  as-clang-java
cd  as-clang-java
CXX=clang++  CC=clang  cmake  -DBUILD_JAVA_LIBS=1  ../
make
INSTALL

The makefile install option installs the astyle executable and documentation files. The default is /usr/bin for the executable and /usr/share/doc/astyle for the documentation. You must have the appropriate permissions to use install.

There is no uninstall. The easiest way to uninstall is to use the install_manifest.txt file, for example "xargs rm < install_manifest.txt".

GCC Makefile

To compile using the GCC compiler you must have GCC (3.1 or better) installed.

The build has no autoconf dependency. To build the Artistic Style configurations, use the makefile located in the astyle/build/gcc directory. The executables will be in the astyle/build/gcc/bin directory. To build the command line configuration, enter the following:

cd astyle/build/gcc
make

To build the other astyle configurations, you can enter the file name or a symbolic name. Entering "make astyle" or "make release" will build the command line configuration. Following are the symbolic names and file names (in parens) of the various configurations:

More than one configuration can be built at the same time. For example, to build all the release configurations enter:

cd astyle/build/gcc
make release shared static

The Other Makefile Targets section contains additional target options.

Clang Makefile

Clang has a static analyzer that finds potential bugs in C/C++ and Objective-C programs. It can be run as a standalone tool from the command-line and runs in tandem with a build. There is a script file, analyze.sh, that will run the analysis on Artistic Style.

The build has no autoconf dependency. To build the Artistic Style configurations use the makefile located in the astyle/build/clang directory. The executables will be in the astyle/build/clang/bin directory. To build the command line configuration, enter the following:

cd astyle/build/clang
make

To build the other astyle configurations, you can enter the file name or a symbolic name. The configurations for Clang are the same as for the GCC Makefile. More than one configuration can be built at the same time. For example, to build all the release configurations enter:

cd astyle/build/clang
make release shared static

The Other Makefile Targets section contains additional target options.

Intel Makefile

These procedures and the makefile are for recent versions of the compiler. They may not work for earlier versions. Instructions for your compiler are in the compiler documentation file "get_started_lc.htm".

To compile with Intel there are environment variables that must be set by running the compiler environment script compilervars.sh (or compilervars.csh) with an argument that specifies the target architecture. This should be done before running the make. If it is not done, "make" will display an error message stating that the compiler environment variables are not set.

The build has no autoconf dependency. To build the Artistic Style configurations use the makefile located in the astyle/build/intel directory. The output executables will be in the astyle/build/intel/bin directory. To build the command line configuration, enter the following:

cd astyle/build/intel
make

To build the other astyle configurations, you can enter the file name or a symbolic name. The configuration names for Intel are the same as for the GCC Makefile. More than one configuration can be built at the same time. For example, to build the entire debug configurations enter:

cd astyle/build/intel
make debug shareddebug staticdebug

The Other Makefile Targets section contains additional target options.

CodeBlocks Linux

There are build folders for the following compilers. All compiler folders are in the "build" directory.

There are workspace and project files for each folder. All projects have at least Debug and Release configurations. All output will be in the "bin" directory.

The workspace contains the following projects.

For other Linux development environments, follow the instructions in Other Development Environments.

MacOS Version

CMake MacOS

Artistic Style has CMake support for MacOS. It is used the same as CMake Linux except the supported compilers are only GCC and Clang.

MacOS Makefile

The Artistic Style makefile compile uses the Mac OS "Command Line Tools". If you have Xcode 4.3 or newer the command line tools, such as "make", are NOT installed by default. They must be downloaded and installed separately. Once everything is successfully installed, you should see "make" and other command line developer tools in /usr/bin.

The build has no autoconf dependency. To build the Artistic Style configurations use the makefile located in the astyle/build/mac directory. The executables will be in the astyle/build/mac/bin directory. To build the command line configuration, enter the following:

cd astyle/build/mac
make

To build the other astyle configurations, you can enter the file name or a symbolic name. The configurations for Mac are the same as for the GCC Makefile. More than one configuration can be built at the same time. For example, to build all the release configurations enter:

cd astyle/build/mac
make release shared static

The Other Makefile Targets section contains additional target options.

Xcode

Artistic Style workspace and project files for the Xcode development environment are available in the "build/xcode" directory. A workspace can be used to build a single project or all the projects. The project files have Debug and Release configurations. The following projects are available.

INSTALL

Only the astyle executable is installed. The library project installs are sent to UninstalledProjects in the Build directory. The following instructions are for the astyle executable and documentation files. The default install directory is /usr/bin for the executable and /usr/share/doc/astyle for the documentation. You must have the appropriate permissions to use install. If sudo is not used for the install, an error will occur during the build.

To install the astyle executable in the default directory:

cd astyle/build/xcode
sudo xcodebuild install -project AStyle.xcodeproj

A script is used to install the documentation from the same directory.

sudo bash install.sh
UNINSTALL

Uninstalls the executable and documentation. You must have the appropriate permissions to use uninstall.

A script is used to uninstall astyle and the documentation:

sudo bash uninstall.sh

NOTE: The uninstall option will NOT remove the .astylerc files from the users' home directories. The files must be removed individually for each user.

Windows Version

Precompiled Executable

In addition to the source files, the Windows distribution package contains an Artistic Style Win32 executable (AStyle.exe). If you prefer to compile the executable yourself, pursue the following instructions.

CMake Windows

Artistic Style has CMake support for Borland, and MinGW compilers. Other compilers will probably work if the necessary options are set. Refer to the section on Compiler Options for more information.

The console executable will run for both of the supported compilers. The DLL builds may not. CMake does not fully support all Windows compilers. To build the DLLs it would be best to generate an IDE project file and compile the DLLs with the IDE. The "build" folder contains project files for CodeBlocks and Visual Studio.

Since the different builds use the same source files an "out of source" build should be used. The default build for MinGW is a release version. A debug version must be specifically requested. For Borland, a release build may need to be specifically requested, depending on the CMake release used. Borland has been tested with the bcc32c free compiler. It may or may not work with other Borland compilers. The the following options are available for building the various configurations.

EXAMPLES

The following examples are assumed to be run from the astyle directory that contains CMakeLists.txt. They show out of source builds that generate makefiles.

A path to the compiler executable may need to be declared before compiling. And the Borland free compiler will need the compiler name. To set the variables before compiling (replace the path names with the paths on your computer):

set PATH=C:\Program Files\CMake\bin;%PATH%
set PATH=C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\BCC101\bin;%PATH%
set CXX=bcc32c

To build the Borland console release version (the release build may need to be specified):

md  as-bcc32c-exe
cd  as-bcc32c-exe
cmake  -G "Borland Makefiles"  -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release  ../
make

To build the MinGW console release version:

md  as-mingw-exe
cd  as-mingw-exe
cmake  -G "MinGW Makefiles"  ../
mingw32-make

As stated previously, the DLL builds may not work with the CMake generated makefiles.

INSTALL

The makefile install option installs the astyle executable and documentation files. The default is "C:\Program Files (x86)\AStyle" for the executable and "C:\Program Files (x86)\AStyle\doc" for the documentation. You may need to run as an administrator to install.

There is no uninstall. The uninstall must be done manually. Just remove the two folders indicated in the Install.

CodeBlocks Windows

There are build folders for the following compilers. All compiler folders are in the "build" directory.

There are workspace and project files for each folder. All projects have at least Debug and Release configurations. All output will be in the "bin" directory.

The workspace contains the following projects.

For other Windows development environments, follow the instructions in Other Development Environments.

Visual Studio

There are solution and project files for several versions of Microsoft Visual Studio. Open an Artistic Style solution file in the appropriate "build" directory. All projects have Debug, Release and Static configurations. Debug file output will be in the "debug" directory. Release file output will be in the "bin" directory. Static file output will be in the "binstatic" directory. The following solution files are available.

For other Windows development environments, follow the instructions in Other Development Environments.

Other Makefile Targets

The following makefile targets are available for GCC, Clang, Intel, and Mac.

CLEAN

Removes the object and executable files for all configurations.

To remove the files for all configurations:

make clean
CLEANOBJ

Removes the object files for all configurations. The executables will not be removed.

To remove only the object files for all configurations:

make cleanobj
INSTALL

Installs the astyle executable and documentation files. The default is /usr/bin for the executable and /usr/share/doc/astyle for the documentation. You must have the appropriate permissions to use install.

To install the astyle to the default directories:

sudo make install

To install astyle to a different bin directory set a value for the macro $(prefix). For example, to install the executable to a user's home directory (/home/user/bin):

sudo make prefix=$HOME install
UNINSTALL

Uninstalls the executable and documentation. You must have the appropriate permissions to use uninstall.

To uninstall astyle from the default directories:

sudo make uninstall

To uninstall the files from a different directory set a value for the macro $(prefix). For example, to uninstall the files from a user's home directory (/home/user):

 sudo make prefix=$HOME uninstall

NOTE: The uninstall option will NOT remove the .astylerc files from the users' home directories. The files must be removed individually for each user.

Other Development Environments

To use other development environments project files usually must be built. CMake can be used if the development environment is supported. Otherwise, use the development environment to create files.

Compiler Options

No macro definitions are required to compile the executable. To compile as a static or shared (dynamic) library define the macro ASTYLE_LIB. To compile a Java shared (dynamic) library define the macro ASTYLE_JNI. The option ASTYLE_NO_EXPORTS is sometimes needed for static libraries to prevent compiler error and warning messages. Use the appropriate compiler and linker options to compile the static or shared library. Add debug options to compile the debug versions.

Artistic Style is a small program and it is best to optimize for speed. The debug configurations are not usually optimized. To optimize for speed in the release configurations, use the macro NDEBUG to remove asserts. If necessary, use an option to activate the C++11 standards (-std=c++11 or -std=c++0x on most compilers). Use an option that allows inline function expansion. Runtime Type Information (RTTI) is NOT needed and exceptions are NOT used. Use whole program optimization if your compiler supports it. There may be other options you can use depending on the compiler.
