Verifying distributions

It is important to verify the authenticity of the distributions, especially if you are downloading Agar from a mirror site. The Agar source distributions are signed by vedge at Get the public key (0x206C63E6) from a public key server or from here. See the GnuPG website for more information about public key signatures.

The fingerprint should match:

Extra developer tools

Agar uses the BSDBuild build system. It is not necessary to install BSDBuild in order to build Agar or modify its Makefiles, because part of it comes bundled with the source distribution. However, if you want to properly edit/regenerate the configure script or compile custom IDE project files, BSDBuild needs to be installed.

Users of the Vim editor may find the following syntax file helpful when developing with Agar.
