LEDA and XERCES

mc2 and new-make demos and/or sandbox installations for whatever purpose you like.

LEDA 6.3 with (mostly) working 'test'files and
Xerces 3.11 sandbox installers.

Here's a couple of examples that install into a sandbox HOME/usr32 which requires ~/usr32/bin in your PATH and ~/usr32/lib in your LD_LIBRARY_PATH to use.

http://rainbowsally.net/rainbowsally...-c-3.1.1-rs.xz

[The files are compressed with xz (lzma) which is pretty standard by now and is half the size of a tar.gz.]

The LEDA is interesting mostly because of how broken it is. I wanted to get GraphML working but it's demolished beyond belief, mostly because of LEDA bugs. And if you're into challenges, there are still some broken tests (that didn't compile at all in the download).

The xerces is my second xerces pass. The first was with v. 2.8 which was closer to the version used by LEDA and the utterly worthless GraphML. (I got word that they might fix their code -- it's a great concept.)

But I ran some of the demos and test files and traced xerces with kdbg and it was so cool that I decided to do the more recent version as well. And it IS compiled with debug info in it. The files are large-ish. If you have an insight-like debugger or kdbg, the test files and the samples are pretty neat.

GREAT JOB XERCES! (And the makefiles are much better than 2.8, if you do decide to compile it from scratch. The sources and licences are all in the 'build' archive included in the d/load.)

Note: I haven't tried it yet, but the xerces will probably install into the root file system if you change the PREFIX in the makefile.

See the new-make utility here at this blog for tips and gotchas to look out for.

Also, if you do want to debug more of the LEDA files, mc2 can make reconfiguring the build very easy.

This is an mc2/new-make demo, I suppose, since both were used to create these packages.

Both utilities are avaliable through links at this blog.
