Chilkat Release Notes

Install the binary distribution by extracting the files from the compressed archive. For example:

gzip -d chilkat-9.5.0-android-cpp.tar.gz
tar -xf chilkat-9.5.0-android-cpp.tar

This will create a 'chilkat-9.5.0-android-cpp' sub-directory containing the Chilkat C++ binary distribution.

C / C++ Headers

The C and C++ header files (.h) are located in the "include" subdirectory.

Static Libraries

The static libraries (each named libchilkat-9.5.0.a) are located in the "lib/arm64-v8a", "lib/armeabi-v7a", "lib/x86", and "lib/x86_64" subdirectories.

The -L compiler option may be used to add an additional directory to the library search path

Android.mk for Building a "C" Application

Here is a sample Android.mk for building a "C" application. Even though your application may be purely "C" code, Chilkat requires the C++ runtime libs to be linked. This Android.mk shows how to do it. (Thank you Řyvind for this sample!)
