Compiling Julian source under Windows XP

Hello

 Is there any instruction on how to compile Julian under Win XP and what tools are required to perform it? I was unable to find compiling instruction.

 When I compiled HTK there was step by step tutorial on how to do it, is there one for Julian?

Thank you for any help.

Best regards

Marcin Fedyna

Hi Marcin,

>Is there any instruction on how to compile Julian under Win XP  

1. download the Julius/Julian source tarball: julius-3.5.3.tar.gz (1.3MB)

2. Go to your cygwin console

3. create a julius directory in your home directory, and extract the tarball into your julius directory

4. go into the julius directory (use cd command)

5. execute these commands (replace "yourusername" with your home directory in Cygwin - see Cygwin cheatsheet for help):

  • ./configure --prefix=/home/yourusername/bin
  • make
  • make install

6. add "/home/yourusername/bin" to your path

This assumes that you downloaded the gcc compiler and make when you installed HTK on your computer.

... or you can use the precompiled binaries from the Julius website:

hope this helps.

Hi Ken.

Thank you very much for your guides , you really helped me!

I managed to compile Julius using Cygwin.

But I have one more question for you , how to enable Julian.exe compilation? The compiler only generated Julius.exe.

 Thanks again for your help.

 

Regards

Marcin

Hi Marcin,

>how to enable Julian.exe compilation?

you need to enable Julian in your configure script:

./configure --prefix=/home/yourusername/bin  --enable-julian

and then make and make install. 

more details can be found on the Julius web site.

I added --enable-julian to the configuration.

When I executed make, the compiler threw error when it entered julius directory.

m_options.c: In function `args_needed_exit':
m_options.c:87: error: `EXECNAME' undeclared (first use in this function)
m_options.c:87: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
m_options.c:87: error: for each function it appears in.)
m_options.c: In function `opt_parse':
m_options.c:211: error: `EXECNAME' undeclared (first use in this function)
make[1]: *** [m_options.o] Error 1

What may be the cause of this. I did not alter the sourcecode and the other binaries compiled succesfully, apart from julian.

I would be grateful for any help.

Regards

Marcin

I`ve added the --enable-julian command to the ./configure.

Unfortunately I`ve run into some errors :(

When I execute make and compiler enters julius directory it displays error:

m_options.c: In function `args_needed_exit':
m_options.c:87: error: `EXECNAME' undeclared (first use in this function)
m_options.c:87: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
m_options.c:87: error: for each function it appears in.)
m_options.c: In function `opt_parse':
m_options.c:211: error: `EXECNAME' undeclared (first use in this function)
make[1]: *** [m_options.o] Error 1

What may cause this problem?

Thanks for any help.

Best regards

Marcin

Hi Marcin,

Please post the output of your configure command (as an attachment). 

An easy way yo do this is to re-run the configure command and redirect the output to a file, as follows:

$./configure --prefix=/home/yourusername/bin  --enable-julian >configoutput

The additional  ">configoutput" directs output from your screen to a file called "configoutput".  Just attach it as a reply to this post.

I've included the output from my run of configure (which compiles OK) so you can compare to yours.  Between the two of us, we should be able to figure this out.

Hi Marcin,

I diff'ed the files, and there seems to be no major differences ...

A few things to try:

  • maybe your julius tar file is corrupted, you might try downloading a fresh copy;
  • is your Cygwin up to date?  Updating to most current (as I did on my tests) might help;
  • just use the Julius/Julian binaries now - the VoxForge Quickstart includes a compiled version of Julian (rel 3.5.2);
  • perhaps switch to Linux  :) ... Ubuntu is a good distro to look at.
