My M-209 Simulation Software is now hosted on GitHub GitLab (note: I moved all of my public repositories from GitHub to GitLab in June, 2018). This means that all past, present and future versions of it will be available in one spot, and users can easily track changes from version to version.

The main Gitlab page for this software project is here:

 https://gitlab.com/NF6X_Crypto/hagelin

You can download tar or zip files for each release from this page:

 https://gitlab.com/NF6X_Crypto/hagelin/tags

You can also clone the entire repository onto your computer by installing the free git software and then using this command:

git clone git@gitlab.com:NF6X_Crypto/hagelin.git

I do my development of this software on my Mac, using the toolchain and libraries provided by MacPorts. If you use MacPorts on a Mac, then you do not need to install the git software from the link above; it is provided by the git-core package in MacPorts.

It should be easy to build this project on other Unix-like platforms such as Linux, too.

I haven’t verified it recently, but it should also be possible to build this project on Windows computers in the Cygwin environment.

I plan to host my future open-source projects on GitLab, too. See all of my public repositories sorted into groups on my GitLab groups page.

  1. I went through the install on Mountain Lion,
    installed xcode via app store, then installed xcode command line
    installed, upgraded old, and got running macports (http://www.macports.org/install.php#requirements – note this was a very long and involved process for me due to an old macport installation that wasn’t maintained

    git cloned the source, per command above

    ran ./configure
    It failed looking for Boost headers

    (ran around the web finding the boost headers, compiling it (long wait time here), not working, and finally thought to try….)
    sudo port install boost

    You might want to include this info in your “INSTALL” document on git to help someone else along the install process

    • Thank you for your suggestion! I’ll try to remember to improve the installation document in a future release. I’ve been told that the manual page needs some work, too.

    Hi,

    I tried to install the M209 Simulator in Debian Linux by downloading: hagelin-master.tar.gz, unzip and untar it to ~/Projects/hagelin-master and typed

    ./configure

    checking for Boost headers version >= 0.0.0… no
    configure: error: cannot find Boost headers version >= 0.0.0

    had to install libboost

    sudo apt-get install libboost*

    tried again

    ./configure

    checking for Boost headers version >= 0.0.0… yes
    checking for Boost’s header version…
    configure: error: invalid value: boost_major_version=

    Please help how to go on…

    Thanks in advance,

    Thomas.

    • Hi! Needing to install the Boost libraries is normal and expected. If I am not mistaken, your new bug is something that happens when I ignore this software for a long time, and Boost changes enough that the boost detection script breaks. I’ve had to update that before.

      If you tell me which Debian distribution you’re using, then I’ll try to install it in a virtual machine and then update my software to work with it.

    • I’ve set up Debian Stretch in a virtual machine and built my simulator. I found that I needed to install the “libboost-dev” and “libboost-regex-dev” packages, and then execute “autoreconf” in the simulator directory. Then I was able to “./configure”, “make”, and “make check” successfully. You might find that there are other packages that you’ll also need to install. If you get more errors, let me know and then we’ll work through it. Good luck!

        Thanks for your help but “autoreconf” executed in “~/Projects/hagelin-master” did not change anything… what do i do wrong??? Do I have the right version of your software downloaded??? I took this one https://gitlab.com/NF6X_Crypto/hagelin/-/archive/master/hagelin-master.tar.gz
