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 To compile Babeltrace, you will need:
30
31 gcc 3.2 or better
32 glib 2.22 or better development libraries
33 (Debian : libglib2.0-0, libglib2.0-dev)
34 (Fedora : glib2, glib2-devel)
35 libc6 development librairies
36 (Debian : libc6, libc6-dev)
37 (Fedora : glibc, glibc)
38 uuid development libraries
39 (Debian : uuid-dev)
40 (Fedora : uuid-devel)
41 libpopt development libraries
42 (Debian : libpopt0, libpopt-dev)
43 (Fedora : popt)

45 For developers using the git tree:
46
47 This source tree is based on the autotools suite from GNU to simplify
48 portability. Here are some things you should have on your system in order to
49 compile the git repository tree :
50
51 - GNU autotools (automake >=1.10, autoconf >=2.50, autoheader >=2.50)
52 (make sure your system wide "automake" points to a recent version!)
53 - GNU Libtool
54 (for more information, go to http://www.gnu.org/software/autoconf/)
55 - Flex >=2.5.35.
56 - Bison >=2.4.
57
58 If you get the tree from the repository, you will need to use the "bootstrap"
59 script in the root of the tree. It calls all the GNU tools needed to prepare the
60 tree configuration.
