Compile from Source

To compile VFU from latest sources, Github snapshots are needed:

git clone https://github.com/cade-vs/vfu-dist.git
cd vfu-dist
git clone https://github.com/cade-vs/vfu.git
git clone https://github.com/cade-vs/vslib.git
git clone https://github.com/cade-vs/vstring.git
make
ls -l vfu/vfu

By default VFU compiles with ncurses library. VFU also can use yascreen screen library instead of ncurses. To compile VFU with yascreen:

git clone https://github.com/cade-vs/vfu-dist.git
cd vfu-dist
git clone https://github.com/cade-vs/vfu.git
git clone https://github.com/cade-vs/vslib.git
git clone https://github.com/cade-vs/vstring.git
git clone https://github.com/cade-vs/yascreen.git
cd vfu
make vfu.yas
ls -l vfu.yas
After cloning from Github, sources can be updated to latest:

cd vfu-dist
git pull
git -C vfu      pull
git -C vslib    pull
git -C vstring  pull
git -C yascreen pull
make
ls -l vfu/vfu
