Libabw is a library that parses the file format of AbiWord documents.
Getting the sources
libabw sources are stored in git. To get them, you can use:
git clone git://gerrit.libreoffice.org/libabw
or you can browse the code online.
Source tarballs of all released versions can be found here.
Building the code
You will need these tools and libraries to build libabw:
boost librevenge libxml2 doxygen # optional for documentation building (can be disabled by passing --without-docs to configure)
Once you have the source code and the dependencies, you can proceed to build. To do that, run the customary sequence of commands in the source code directory:
./autogen.sh ''# only needed for building from git'' ./configure make make install
Once you have made a change that you are happy with, contribute it back, we'll be happy to integrate it! There are two ways to get your contribution to us:
- Submitting it to gerrit (strongly preferred, easier if you already have done the initial setup). How to work with gerrit is described here.
- Sending a patch.
git format-patch origin/master
will create one or more patch files. These you can send to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please prefix the subject with "[PATCH] libabw: ".
