I am working with a XEM3010 board, and have had some great results using the FrontPanel API on a Windows machine. I now have to move my project to Linux though, and as it happens I am a total Linux newbie.
Initially I am trying to just write a small program in C, which can configure the FPGA, and then work onwards from there.
I have quite a few problems though: The documentation done for the Linux part of the API is in my eyes non-existing. I have been unable to find any documentation on how to use the libraries (static or dynamic), or the syntax of the function calls. Are they the same as the DLL for windows?
What I would like was a quick walkthrough on how to link to the libraries, where to find information on the syntax for the function calls. In short something quite like the documentation that has been done for the Windows platform. Also if someone could give some pros and cons on using either static or dynamic libraries I would appreciate it a lot.
Cheers - Sune.
