Extra Developer Tools

BSDBuild is a BSD-style build system which provides useful make libraries as well as the ability to generate Bourne configure scripts which provide the same functionality and user interface as autoconf generated scripts. It's not necessary to install BSDBuild in order to build Agar. BSDBuild is needed if you want to regenerate the configure script from sources.

Users of the Vim editor (or any other editor with support for Vim syntax files) may find the syntax files under the syntax/ directory useful. They contain definitions for every type and constant exported by Agar.

The valgrind instrumentation framework is recommended for finding memory errors.
