    606 Precompiled builds of BNC are available for MS Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X systems and can be downloaded for installation from <u>http://igs.bkg.bund.de/ntrip/download</u>. Please ensure that you always use the latest version of the program.
     606Precompiled builds of BNC are available for MS Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X systems. They can be downloaded for installation from <u>http://igs.bkg.bund.de/ntrip/download</u>. Please ensure that you always use the latest released version of the program.

    609 <u>MS Windows build:</u> A dynamically compiled shared libary build for Mircrosoft Windows systems is provided as Microsoft Installer (MSI) file. MSI files are used for installation, storage, and removal of programs. The BNC files are contained in a MSI package, which is used with the program's client-side installer service, an .EXE file, to open and install the program. After installation your 'bnc.exe' file shows up under 'All Programs'.

    613 <u>Linux build:</u> Static library and shared library builds for BNC are provided for a selection of Linux distributions. Download the ZIP archive for a version which fits to your Linux, unzip the archive and run the included BNC binary file. For Linux, static and shared builds of BNC are made available. A <u>static</u> build would be sufficient in case you don't want BNC to trace PPP results using Google Map (GM) or OpenStreetMap (OSM). Note that GM/OSM usage requires the QtWebKit library which can only be part of BNC builds from <u>shared</u> libraries.

    617 <u>Mac OS X build:</u>
    618 A shared library 'Disk iMaGe' (DMG) file is provided for BNC on OS X systems. It also comes in a ZIP archive. The DMG file format is used in the Mac for distributing software. Mac install packages appear as a virtual disk drive. After download, when the DMG file icon is double clicked, the virtual drive is 'mounted' on the desktop. Install BNC by dragging the 'bnc.app' icon to your /Applications folder. To start BNC, double click on /Applications/bnc.app. You could also start BNC via Command Line Interface (CLI) using command '/Applications/bnc.app/Contents/MacOS/bnc'.

The BNC files are contained in a MSI package, which is used with the program's client-side installer service, an .EXE file, to open and install the program. We used the MinGW Version 4.4.0 compiler to create BNC for Windows. After installation your 'bnc.exe' file shows up e.g. under 'All Programs'.

    622 BNC has been written under GNU General Public License (GPL). This ZIP archive provides the BNC source code Version 2.12.0 as developed using Qt Version 4.8.5. The latest source code is available from Subversion software archive <u>http://software.rtcm-ntrip.org/svn/trunk/BNC</u>. The following describes how to produce your builds of BNC on Windows, Linux, and Mac systems.

    625 <p>
    626  We used the MinGW Version 4.4.0 compiler to create the Windows binaries. It is likely that BNC can be compiled on other systems where a GNU compiler and Qt Version 4.8.4 or any later version are installed.
    627 Using a shared library BNC build requires that you first install your own shared Qt library.
    628 </p>
    629 
    630 <p><b>Static and Shared Libraries</b><br>
    631 You can produce static or shared builds of BNC. Static builds are sufficient in case you don't want BNC to produce track maps using Google Map (GM) or Open StreetMap (OSM). GM/OSM usage would requires the QtWebKit library which can only be part of BNC builds from shared libraries. So, using a shared library BNC build requires that you first install your own shared library of Qt.

     626You can produce static or shared builds of BNC. Static builds are sufficient in case you don't want BNC to produce track maps using Google Map (GM) or Open StreetMap (OSM). GM/OSM usage would require the QtWebKit library which can only be part of BNC builds from shared libraries. Hence, producing a shared library BNC build requires that you first install your own shared library of Qt.
