I'm trying to use
c++ Antonopoulos's book code for quite some time and it seems to me lacking a
To compile the code
g++ compiler gets a
pkg-config entrance with
libbitcoin. So I guess I should install this library.
Since the book does not mention installing anything else then
bitcoin core I really wonder if parts of
libbitcoin have been part of
bitcoin core and were excluded at some point.
The other explanation would be that the author forgot to mention it. But it seems a little overloaded that I need to install another complete system for a complete node (
libbitcoin) to be able to execute the code since the book explicitly states that the execution of a complete node with
bitcoin core should be enough.
It's a minor and probably laughable thing for a domain expert, but I'm also learning to use
pkg-config and the compiler by doing that.
There have been suggestions for just installing parts of
libbitcoin but the developers have said that it is advisable to install the complete thing with the automatic installation script.
There is also
libbitcoin-devwhich is a package in
debian (I run Raspbian Buster), but I could not compile the code with it.
