A collection of libraries such as OpenSSL, Cyrus SASL, OpenLDAP, and PCRE which have been ported to the iPhone/iOS platform.

iOS Ports

Quick Start for Xcode 4
=======================

This tutorial assumes that you are familiar with the following guides
available on Apple’s Dev Center:

* Xcode 4 User Guide
– Introduction
– Orientation to Xcode

For the sake of clarity, this tutorial uses the following information. Be
sure to substitute information appropiate for your project and setup:

Project Name:           Zebra
App Name:               Zebra.app
Project File:           Zebra.xcodeproj
Project Location:       /Users/zookeeper/Documents/Zebra/
iOS Ports Location:     /Users/zookeeper/Documents/iOSPorts/
iOS Ports Includes:     /Users/zookeeper/Documents/iOSPorts/include
Relative Include Path:  ../iOSPorts/include

In order to use packages from iOS Ports the following items need
to be completed:

* Download iOS Projects (see “Source Code” section of this README).
* Note the package information for the packages to be used (see “Packages”
section of this README).
* Add iOS Ports Xcode project files to Zebra.xcodeproj.
* Update the “Build Phases” in Zebra.xcodeproj
* Update the “Build Settings” in Zebra.xcodeproj.

Add iOS Ports Xcode project files
=================================

1) Open Zebra.xcodeproj in Xcode.
2) On the menubar, select “File” -> “Add Files to ‘Zebra’…”
A new dialog should appear.
4) In the dialog, locate the first Xcode project from the “Add” field
of the desired iOS Ports package. For example, if adding OpenLDAP to
your project, you would locate “openldap.xcodeproj”.
5) Click the “Add” button. The xcode project “openldap.xcodeproj” should
appear in the “Project Navigator”.
6) Repeat for the remaining Xcode projects listed in the “Add” field
of the desired iOS Ports package.

 Update Build Phases
===================
Open the Project Editor
1) Display the “Project Navigator” in the “Navigator Area” of Xcode’s
main window (see “Xcode 4 User Guide”).
2) Click on the project icon in the project navigator (the project name
is visible next to the project icon).  The project’s build settings
should appear in the “Edit Area” of Xcode’s window.
3) In “TARGETS” section, select the target which will use the iOS Ports
packages.

Update “Target Dependencies”
1) Select the “Build Phases” tab from the project editor.
2) Expand the “Target Dependencies” section.
3) Click the “+” button under “Target Dependencies”. A list of targets
should appear.
4) Locate the first target from the “Dependencies” field of the desired
iOS Ports package. The target should have an icon of a stone building.
Using OpenLDAP as an example, you would select “ldap”.
5) Click the “Add” button.
6) Repeat for the remaining targets listed in the “Dependencies” field
of the desired iOS Ports package.

Update “Link Binary With Libraries”
1) Select the “Build Phases” tab from the project editor.
2) Expand the “Link Binary With Libraries” section.
3) Click the “+” button under “Link Binary With Libraries”. A list of
libraries should appear.
4) Locate the first library from the “Link With” field of the desired
iOS Ports package. The target should have an icon of a stone building.
Using OpenLDAP as an example, you would select “libldap.a”.
5) Click the “Add” button.
6) Repeat for the remaining libraries listed in the “Link With” field of
the desired iOS Ports package.

Update Build Settings
=====================
Update Search Paths
1) Select the “Build Settings” tab from the project editor.
2) Search for the setting titled “Always Search User Paths”. Change the
value to “Yes”. If the editor is displaying setting names instead of
setting titles, search for “ALWAYS_SEARCH_USER_PATHS”. If the editor
if displaying setting definitions instead of setting values, change
the definition to “YES”.
2) Search for the setting titled “User Header Search Paths”. Add the
relative include path to the iOS Ports include directory. In this
example, the relative include path is “../iOSPorts/include” since
both Zebra and iOS Ports are in the same parent directory. If the
editor is displaying setting names instead of setting titles, search
for “USER_HEADER_SEARCH_PATHS”.

The project Zebra should now be ready to compile the required static
libraries and link to them.  The source for the iOS Ports packages will
be downloaded the first time the packages are compiled.

When using two or more iOS Ports packages, it is not necessary to follow
these instructions for packages which are already included by other
packages.  For example, including OpenLDAP automatically includes OpenSSL
and Cyrus SASL.
