Build and install

The meson build system is used to build and install dtee:

meson build/release             # configure dtee build
ninja -C build/release          # compile
ninja -C build/release test     # run the tests
ninja -C build/release install  # install to default locations

A Makefile that calls meson and ninja is provided for convenience.

See the list of dependencies for more information on build, test and runtime requirements.


The build and test process makes use of symbolic links. If the repository is cloned outside of Cygwin these will not be present unless unprivileged symbolic links are enabled and all environments are configured to use native symbolic links.

Some of the tests cannot be run from an elevated process and will be skipped.
