Compiling

Introduction

This module is header only. So one just has to #include <GooseFEM/GooseFEM.h>, and to tell the compiler where the header-files are.

Using CMake

The following structure can be used for your project’s CMakeLists.txt:

find_package(GooseFEM REQUIRED)

add_executable(myexec mymain.cpp)

target_link_libraries(myexec PRIVATE
    GooseFEM
    xtensor::optimize
    xtensor::use_xsimd)

See the documentation of xtensor concerning optimisation.

Note

There are additional targets available to expedite your CMakeLists.txt:

  • GooseFEM::assert: enable GooseFEM assertions.
  • GooseFEM::debug: enable GooseFEM and xtensor assertions (slow).
  • GooseFEM::compiler_warnings: enable compiler warnings.

By hand

Presuming that the compiler is c++, compile using:

c++ -I/path/to/GooseFEM/include ...

Note that you have to take care of the xtensor and Eigen dependencies, the C++ version, optimisation, enabling xsimd, …

Using pkg-config

Find the location of the headers can be automatised using pkg-config:

pkg-config --cflags GooseFEM
