The Presage project
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Welcome to Presage, the intelligent predictive text entry system.


This document will guide you through the steps required to configure
and build the Presage system and libraries. You should be ready to run
Presage in a few minutes.

This README does not contain the answers to all the questions you
might have. If you run into troubles, if you have problems, or if you
would like a pressing question answered, please direct your attention
to the doc/ directory, where you will find all the available
documentation.


Requirements:
- A working development enviroment.
  On Linux/Unix systems, this means having GCC (g++), the GNU Compiler
  Collection packages, as well as libraries for these languages
  (libstdc++, glibc, etc).

  On Solaris systems, this means having Sun Studio 10 or Sun Studio 11
  compilers.

  On Windows systems, please either install the Cygwin development
  environment or the MinGW/MSYS developer environment.

  Cygwin can be obtained from http://www.cygwin.com
  Instructions on how to setup Cygwin and required packages can be
  found in the doc/INSTALL_Cygwin_dev_env.txt file.

  MinGW/MSYS can be obtained from http://www.mingw.org
  Instructions on how to setup MinGW/MSYS and required packages can be
  found in the doc/INSTALL_MinGW_MSYS_dev_env.txt file.

- SQLite package. SQLite is a small C library that implements a
  self-contained, embeddable, zero-configuration SQL database engine.
  SQLite can be obtained from http://www.sqlite.org
 
  On Debian systems, install libsqlite3-dev and sqlite3 packages.

Optional:
- Curses library. On Debian systems, install libncurses5-dev.

- CPPUnit library. On Debian systems, install libcppunit-dev.

- Python package. On Debian systems, install python-dev.

- SWIG package. On Debian systems, install swig.

- help2man package. On Debian systems, install help2man.

- doxygen package. On Debian systems, install doxygen.

- dot program. On Debian systems, install graphviz.

- X11 EvIE extension library. On Debian systems, install libxevie-dev.

- GNOME development package. On Debian systems, install gnome-devel.

- CMU-Cambridge Statistical Language Modeling toolkit.

STEP 0: Getting Presage
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Official releases and development snapshots are available from the
download section of the official website hosted by SourceForge

  http://presage.sourceforge.net

Alternatively, get the latest and greatest sources from SVN.


_________________________
STEP 1: Unpacking Presage
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On Linux/Unix, uncompress and untar the distribution with 

  tar jxvf presage-*.tar.bz2

or

  tar zxvf presage-*.tar.gz

depending on whether you downloaded the tarball or the bzipped archive.


___________________________
STEP 2: Configuring Presage
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Configuring Presage to different platforms, environments and
operating systems is simply a matter of running

  ./configure

in the top-level directory of the distribution. This will configure
Presage for your system. Should you require additional options, try

  ./configure --help

to see the available options.


_________________________
STEP 3: Compiling Presage
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Kick off the compilation with

  make

This will build the Presage system, libraries and available
plugins.


__________________________
STEP 4: Installing Presage
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Install Presage and its support libraries and plugins by typing

  make install


__________________________________
STEP 5: Let Presage read your mind
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Presage includes some demonstration programs that will read the user
input and guess what the user intends to type using its predictive
technology. These programs require additional libraries that are not
needed by the presage library and might not be configured to build,
depending on the build system installed libraries (except
presage_demo_text, which has no extra dependencies and is therefore
always built). To start, type:

 * presage_demo_text

   Simple textual console application designed to interactively test
   presage predictive functionality. The program reads strings from
   standard input and returns predictions.


 * presage_demo

   Ncurses based demo program similar to presage_demo_text.


 * presage_simulator

   Console application that simulates presage predictive process and
   reports on predictive performance.


 * presage_python_demo

   Simple console application designed to interactively test presage
   python binding.


 * gprompter

   Cross-platform predictive text editor. gprompter displays
   predictions in a contextual pop-up box as each letter is
   typed. Predictions can be easily selected and inserted in the
   document. gprompter is a cross-platform GTK+ application.


 * pyprompter

   Text editor with autocompletion popups displaying predictions and
   enabling users to quickly and efficiently select the correct
   prediction or requesting more predictions. pyprompter is a
   cross-platform wxPython application.


 * pypresagemate

   Universal predictive text companion. Pypresagemate works alongside
   any AT-SPI aware application. The Assistive Technology Service
   Provider Interface (AT-SPI) is a toolkit-neutral way of providing
   accessibility facilities in applications. Pypresagemate works in
   the background by tracking what keystrokes are typed and displaying
   predictions in its window. When a prediction is selected, text is
   sent to the active application.

 * gpresagemate

   X application that monitors all X events and display predictions in
   its window. When users select the correct prediction, it is sent to
   the current active X application as if it had been typed
   in. Requires that XEvIE X extension is enabled.
