5 This project provides trace read and write libraries, as well as a trace
6 converter. A plugin can be created for any trace format to allow its conversion
7 to/from another trace format.
8
9 The main format expected to be converted to/from is the Common Trace
10 Format (CTF). The latest version of the CTF specification can be found at:

29 ------------
30
31 To compile Babeltrace, you will need:
32
33 gcc 3.2 or better
34 libc6 development librairies
35 (Debian : libc6, libc6-dev)
36 (Fedora : glibc, glibc)
37 glib 2.22 or better development libraries
38 (Debian : libglib2.0-0, libglib2.0-dev)
39 (Fedora : glib2, glib2-devel)
40 uuid development libraries
41 (Debian : uuid-dev)
42 (Fedora : uuid-devel)
43 libpopt >= 1.13 development libraries
44 (Debian : libpopt-dev)
45 (Fedora : popt)
46 python headers (optional)
47 (Debian/Ubuntu : python3-dev)
48 swig >= 2.0 (optional)
49 (Debian/Ubuntu : swig2.0)
50 python 3.0 or better (optional)
51 (Debian/Ubuntu : python3)
52
53 If you want Python bindings, run ./configure --enable-python-bindings.
54 Please note that some distributions will need the following
55 environment variables set before running configure:
56
57 export PYTHON="python3"
58 export PYTHON_CONFIG="/usr/bin/python3-config"

60 For developers using the git tree:
61
62 This source tree is based on the autotools suite from GNU to simplify
63 portability. Here are some things you should have on your system in order to
64 compile the git repository tree :
65
66 - GNU autotools (automake >=1.10, autoconf >=2.50, autoheader >=2.50)
67 (make sure your system wide "automake" points to a recent version!)
68 - GNU Libtool >=2.2
69 (for more information, go to http://www.gnu.org/software/autoconf/)
70 - Flex >=2.5.35.
71 - Bison >=2.4.
72
73 If you get the tree from the repository, you will need to use the "bootstrap"
74 script in the root of the tree. It calls all the GNU tools needed to prepare the
75 tree configuration.
76
77 Running "make check": bash is required.
