2. Building Instructions


  1. Perl 5.005_003 or newer

    Website: http://www.perl.com

  2. libpcap

    Website: http://www.tcpdump.org

    Impost will still compile with-out libpcap -- however packet sniffing will not be available.


The simplest way to compile this package is:

  1. cd to the directory containing the package's source code and type `./configure' to configure the package for your system. If you're using csh on an old version of System V, you might need to type `sh ./configure' instead to prevent csh from trying to execute configure itself.

    Running configure takes awhile. While running, it prints some messages telling which features it is checking for.

  2. Type `make' to compile the package.

Some systems require unusual options for compilation or linking that the configure script does not know about. Run `./configure --help' for details on some of the pertinent environment variables.

You can give configure initial values for configuration parameters by setting variables in the command line or in the environment. Here is an example:

./configure CC=c89 CFLAGS=-O2 LIBS=-lposix
