Downloading and Installing Loco 0.0.1

To download and install Loco 0.0.1, get

automated build

Get the download and build script called get_current.bash. Save it in a directory in which you want to install diablo. Execute the script. It will fetch the tarballs listed in the above directory, extract them and build local versions of all the libraries that make up Loco. After the script finishes (takes some time), you end up with a directory called loco. It contains the Loco libraries in loco/lib and headers in loco/include, as well as pkg-config information in loco/lib/pkgconfig.

Known Issues

I'm still working on the "glue code" between the obfuscation libraries, the diablo libraries and the lancet functionality.
