Mirth :: Download
Current version: 0.9.2.
If upgrading, delete the ".mirth" file in your home folder before running the new version. Under Mac / Linux, type "rm ~/.mirth" in a terminal to do this.
The following instructions are for programmers wanting to modify Mirth and for people using operating systems other than Mac OS X and Windows. If all you want to do is run Mirth on a Mac or Windows machine, just click on the appropriate link above.
Note: instead of downloading the source code from the link above, you can also get it via Subversion from the Mirth project page on Google Code.
Mac OS X: Download the latest Mac OS X "Runtime Library" version of SDL.framework, and SDL_image.framework. (On the Mac, runtime libraries contain all the data necessary to link them to a program. You do not need the "Development Library" for the Mac, although you may find it useful if you will be developing other SDL applications in the future.)
Copy SDL.framework and SDL_image.framework into /Library/Frameworks.
Open Mirth.xcodeproj. You will need Xcode version 2 or higher (the version that comes with Mac OS X 10.4).
Click the "build and run" button.
Copy SDL.dll and SDL_image.dll into the Mirth folder, or into your system folder (C:\WINDOWS\system32).
Open Strange.sln. You will probably need Visual Studio 2005 or later.
In Tools->Options->Projects and Solutions->VC++ Directories, add "<path/to/your/SDL/install>/lib" to the libraries path, and add "<path/to/your/SDL/install>/include" to the includes path. Do the same for SDL_image.
Mirth uses libcurl to download files. You have two options for installing libcurl:
1. Build the latest version of libcurl from the source. On Windows, this is somewhat complicated. You will need to build a statically linked version of libcurl, or else change the project settings.
2. Download my handy pre-built version of libcurl, and copy "libcurl.lib" and the "curl" folder into the Mirth folder.
Compile and run.
Linux: Use your favorite package manager to install libsdl1.2-dev and libsdl-image1.2-dev.
Download the latest source for libcurl. In the terminal, navigate to the libcurl source folder and type the usual commands to build and install it (./configure; make; sudo make install).
In a terminal window, navigate to the Mirth directory and type "make".
Type "./mirth" to run the executable that is produced.
