Linux Application Checker Getting Started

Having learned what the Linux Application Checker ("AppChecker") can do, it's now time to install and implement AppChecker. This document describes general steps on getting started with AppChecker, from installation to execution to interpreting the results.

All About the Linux Application Checker

The Linux Application Checker (also referred to as "AppChecker") is a powerful new tool designed to help software developers target Linux. It draws on the extensive testing framework developed by the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Linux Foundation and leverages the work of the Linux Standard Base (LSB) workgroup.

That's the official version, but what does the tool's functionality really mean to application developers who want to write apps for Linux? In a few words: ease of portability.

Check Your App

However you want to improve your application, through maximizing portability or full LSB certification, the first step on the journey is determining the status of your application. Specifically, how portable is it now?

To help accomplish this, the Linux Developer Network is providing a great tool to help you see just how portable your current application is; even how close it is to the LSB standard already.
