ADCH++ is a hub (server) software for the ADC (Advanced Direct Connect) network. It supports Unix and Windows platforms, and is extensible with scripts in lua and python (so far) as well as C++ plugins.
* In the source folder, type "scons -h" to see additional compile options
* Type "scons" to create a debug build. "scons mode=release" will create a release build.
ADCH++ is configured using an XML file, as are the standard plugins. The example configuration contains enough comments to get you started. In Linux, the default location for configuration files is "/etc/adchpp/". In Windows, it's a directory named "config" under the installation directory.
ADCH++ will normally run as a console / terminal application but can also be convinced to run in the background (daemon/service). It accepts various command line options such as:
-c < configdir > | Run with an alternate config directoy. Must be an absolute path.
-i < name > | Install the hub service to enable running as a service. * Windows only *
-u < name > | Remove the service you created earlier. * Windows only *
-v | Print version information (make sure to include this in any bug reports)
-d | Run as a daemon. Kill with a standard sigterm. * Linux only *
-p < pid-file > | Write process pid to < pid-file > * Linux only *
