ITK/Configuring and Building
Configuring And Building
This page describes the various ways of configuring and building ITK in common configurations. Recommended configurations are incldued for:
- Mac OS X
It is strongly recommended that you build ITK in a separate tree. This is described elsewhere (?).
CMake Configuration for Linux
This configuration is the one used to build the packages for Debian GNU/Linux, but should work for any distribution just fine. It assumes that you already have certain libraries installed (which will almost always be the case), specifically:
The rpath option is disabled, as it is only really needed if you install the libraries into someplace other than a standard directory that is on your LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
You can either paste this into a CMakeCache.txt or change the settings manually by running ccmake.
# This is the Kickstart CMakeCache file for the Debian build of ITK. # Only those settings that are changed from the default are specified. // For some reason it defaults to c++ CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER:STRING=g++ // Don't build examples now (let the user later) BUILD_EXAMPLES:BOOL=OFF // Build ITK with shared libraries BUILD_SHARED_LIBS:BOOL=ON // Don't bother building the testing tree BUILD_TESTING:BOOL=OFF // Give us an optimised release build CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE:STRING=RELWITHDEBINFO // Install path prefix, prepended onto install directories CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/usr // The code still uses the older #include <iostream.h> style CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS:STRING=-Wno-deprecated // We do not want rpath enabled CMAKE_SKIP_RPATH:BOOL=ON // We haven't packaged this (yet) ITK_DATA_ROOT:PATH=ITK_DATA_ROOT_NOTFOUND // Use the system libraries for these ITK_USE_SYSTEM_JPEG:BOOL=ON ITK_USE_SYSTEM_PNG:BOOL=ON ITK_USE_SYSTEM_TIFF:BOOL=ON ITK_USE_SYSTEM_ZLIB:BOOL=ON //Build cswig Python wrapper support ITK_CSWIG_PYTHON:BOOL=ON //Build cswig Tcl wrapper support ITK_CSWIG_TCL:BOOL=ON
Ebuild for Gentoo Linux
For Gentoo Linux you can use the ebuild found in the following gentoo/funtoo git repository.
Build for Ubuntu Linux
Please see the detailed ITK Configuring and Building for Ubuntu Linux notes.
CMake Configuration for Mac OS X
This configuration has been tested on Mac OS X Panther 10.3, with XCode 1.1 and 1.2. It presumes that Fink has been installed, with the following libraries in the default location under /sw:
//Name of build on the dashboard BUILDNAME:STRING=Darwin-g++ //Build source documentation using doxygen BUILD_DOXYGEN:BOOL=OFF //Build the Examples directory. BUILD_EXAMPLES:BOOL=OFF //Build ITK with shared libraries. BUILD_SHARED_LIBS:BOOL=ON //Build the testing tree. BUILD_TESTING:BOOL=OFF //Choose the type of build, options are: None(CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS or // CMAKE_C_FLAGS used) Debug Release RelWithDebInfo MinSizeRel. // CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE:STRING=RelWithDebInfo //C++ compiler CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER:STRING=g++ //Use the system's jpeg library. ITK_USE_SYSTEM_JPEG:BOOL=ON //Use the system's png library. ITK_USE_SYSTEM_PNG:BOOL=ON //Use the system's tiff library. ITK_USE_SYSTEM_TIFF:BOOL=ON //Use an outside build of VXL. ITK_USE_SYSTEM_VXL:BOOL=OFF //Use the system's zlib library. ITK_USE_SYSTEM_ZLIB:BOOL=ON //What is the path where the file jpeglib.h can be found JPEG_INCLUDE_DIR:PATH=/sw/include //Where can the jpeg library be found JPEG_LIBRARY:FILEPATH=/sw/lib/libjpeg.dylib //Where can the png library be found PNG_LIBRARY:FILEPATH=/sw/lib/libpng.dylib //What is the path where the file png.h can be found PNG_PNG_INCLUDE_DIR:PATH=/sw/include //What is the path where the file tiff.h can be found TIFF_INCLUDE_DIR:PATH=/sw/include //Where can the tiff library be found TIFF_LIBRARY:FILEPATH=/sw/lib/libtiff.dylib //What is the path where the file zlib.h can be found ZLIB_INCLUDE_DIR:PATH=/usr/include //Where can the z library be found ZLIB_LIBRARY:FILEPATH=/usr/lib/libz.dylib
CMake Configuration for Solaris
CMake Configuration for AIX
CMake Configuration for Windows
Using a predefined Configuration
CMake can be run interactively to configure a build, in which case all settings begin with system defaults (as determined by CMakeLists.txt) and the user customises them.
Alternatively, a predefined configuration (such as those shown above) can be provided, which will provide initial settings for the build (also known as priming). By creating a file called CMakeCache.txt in the top level of the build directory, the settings defined therein will be used to override the default settings for the build.
ITK can be wrapped for several different languages such as Python, Tcl and Java.
