Our first article will explain what tools must be installed to use the CopperSpice libraries on your specific platform. The next few articles will cover how to install CopperSpice and then show how to build a simple GUI example. Future articles will build on this first example as we show more of the components available in CopperSpice.
Installing CopperSpice This article will explain how to install the CopperSpice libraries. You can either build CopperSpice from source or follow the directions to install our pre-built binary files.
Source Code (Gui Example 1) In our first example we are going to walk through the source code for a short program which uses CopperSpice. This program creates a GUI application consisting of one window with a single push button. The Close button will close the window and terminate the application.
Build File (Gui Example 1) In our next article we will explain the CMake build file which is used to compile and link.
Compile, Link, and Run (Gui Example 1) This entry will focus on actually building and running the first example.
