EDoc++ can be obtained in a few different formats. From the sourceforge download page it is possible to download source and binary packages as well as a few external packages required to build EDoc++ from source when it is obtained by CVS. The sourceforge download page can be found at:

Listed below are the various files that can be downloaded for version: 0.2.1:

  • edoc-0.2.1.tar.bz2

    Complete EDoc++ source including required GCC and doxygen archives.

  • edoc_0.2.1_i386.deb

    Debian precompiled linux binary for Ubuntu

  • edoc-0.2.1-1.i386.rpm

If you choose to dowload EDoc++ from CVS, then you will require some additional files. This also applies if you have obtained a cutdown source tarball. The cutdown source tarball will be named: edoc-0.2.1-small.tar.bz2 and is not officially distributed at the moment. These instructions below apply to both CVS and cutdown source.

  • GCC 4.0.1 source tarballs

    Note: These two files should be placed in the <edoc_project>/archives/ directory.

  • Doxygen 1.5.1 source tarball

    Like the GCC 4.0.1 source tarballs this one is required to build the patched version of doxygen that works with the EDoc++ generated data files. This can be downloaded from:

    Note: This file should be placed in the <edoc_project>/archives/ directory.
