Part I. Installing and verifying the configuring

The goal of this first part is to introduce the necessary configurations options in order to install and use the library. It will describe all necessary steps in order to successfully install and verify the installation of the library.


All files in the library uses utf-8 character encoding to be able to show a wide range of locales. The same applies to all examples. Since some example shows how to use extended character sets , i.e. Chinese and Japanese, and the extended characters are entered directly in the source file the editor/viewer used to view these files must be able to show utf-8 encoded files properly. Since utf-8 character set coincide with the ASCII character set for the usual latin (e.g. a-z, 0-9, etc) characters most files can however be seen with non utf-8 compliant editor/viewers.
