== Compilation & Installation

To compile the source code, you will require at least C{plus}{plus}17. + If you are compiling sources from a release tarball, you'll need the development files for:

Optionally, you may want to install:

And then do:

$ ./configure --with-crypto-library=sodium # or "gcrypt", based on your preference
$ make
$ sudo make install

After the sources are successfully built, you can run the test suite by executing:

$ make check

If you want to compile the sources in a cloned repository, you'll have to run the ./ script. It will fetch the sources (via git submodules) of[PEGTL] and[Catch]. The script will then initialize the autotools based build system.
