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

Linker Options to Reduce EXE Size

Use the following linker options to minimize the size of your application's EXE.

-Wl,--gc-sections,--icf=safe

(For the arm64 architecture, omit the ",--icf=safe")

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 √ėyvind for this sample!)
