ncap2 not found?

    I have nco-4.3.2 installed, while running a script I encountered a problem
    ncap2: command not found

    I checkd ncap is available in the system but not ncap2. How can I get that?

    Apologies for not responding earlier. Somehow this slipped through the cracks.

    Not sure why ncap2 did not get installed or is not on your path. Did you install from pre-built binaries? Which one?

    If you successfully build NCO from source, then ncap2 will be available in the installation directory.

    I had this issue on Gentoo using the 4.3.2 ebuild. The problem is that antlr is now antlr3 on gentoo (perhaps other distros too), and the configure script fails to find antlr, which then disables ncap2 building. This is not obvious until you look for the ncap2 binary afterward and find it's missing. I made a sym-link from antlr to antlr3, and it's fine.

    Thanks for pointing out this workaround. As ANTLR3 ages, workarounds like this will become more prevalent. Our long-term goal is to re-base ncap2 on ANTLR4.
