You can use the available pre-built binaries or build Hoard yourself. Hoard is written to work on Windows and any variant of UNIX that supports threads, and should compile out of the box. Rather than using Makefiles or configure scripts, Hoard includes custom scripts that all start with the prefix compile.
Linux and Solaris Builds
You can compile Hoard out of the box for Linux and Solaris using the GNU compilers (g++) just by running the compile script:
There are two alternative ways of using Hoard with Windows.
The first approach builds a DLL, libhoard.dll and its associated library libhoard.lib.
The second and preferred approach generates winhoard, which replaces malloc/new calls in your program and any DLLs it might use.
