Installing ns-3.37 and ns-3.35 in Ubuntu | Ubuntu 22.04 | NS3

Multiple Versions of ns3 in Ubuntu 22.04 In this post, we are going to install two versions of ns3 namely ns-3.35 and ns-3.37  My OS is : Ubuntu 22.04 LTS (Long Term Support) ns-3.35 uses waf and (./waf --run scratch/first)  ns-3.37 uses cmake  (./ns3 run scratch/first.cc) So we will install both the packages  Go through the video for complete instructions To start with  $ sudo apt update  $ sudo apt install build-essential autoconf automake libxmu-dev g++ python3 python3-dev pkg-config sqlite3 cmake python3-setuptools git qtbase5-dev qtchooser qt5-qmake qtbase5-dev-tools gir1.2-goocanvas-2.0 python3-gi python3-gi-cairo python3-pygraphviz gir1.2-gtk-3.0 ipython3 openmpi-bin openmpi-common openmpi-doc libopenmpi-dev autoconf cvs bzr unrar gsl-bin libgsl-dev libgslcblas0 wireshark tcpdump sqlite sqlite3 libsqlite3-dev  libxml2 libxml2-dev libc6-dev libc6-dev-i386 libclang-dev llvm-dev automake python3-pip libxml2 libxml2-dev libboost-all-dev  I have downloaded both the versions of ns3 fr

How to Write Makefile

Assume there are more number of source files to be compiled using a set of commands everytime is a tedious process. So there is a facility to compile everything at a stretch is by the use of a Makefile.
The makefile can be named as either “Makefile” or “makefile”.
Let me define four files for my simple application, create a new directory and store all the files given below
  • main.c  (which contains the main program)
  • sum.c (summing function is defined)
  • hello.c (print hello world)
  • function.h (function prototypes are declared)
//function.h
int sum(int,int);
void print_hello();
//hello.c
#include
#include “function.h”
void print_hello()
{
printf(“Hello World \n”);
}
//sum.c
#include “function.h”
int sum(int a, int b)
{
int c;
c=a+b;
return c;
}
//main.c
#include
#include “function.h”
int main()
{
int a=10,b=20,c;
print_hello();
c=sum(a,b);
printf(“The sum of two numbers is %d “,c);
return 0;
}
There are different methods of compiling this file
Method 1: (gcc command based)
gcc main.c sum.c hello.c –o pradeep
once you execute the above command, an executable named pradeep is created and you can see the output by typing./pradeep
Method 2: using Makefile

The basic makefile is composed of:
This syntax applied to example would look like:
target: dependencies
[tab] system command
all:
gcc main.c sum.c hello.c –o pradeep
to run this make file(the file name should be Makefile or makefile), execute the command
make
Method 3: using Makefile with dependencies
There may be a chance of using different targets in your makefile, this is because if you modify a single file in your project, you don’t have to recompile everything, only what you modified.
Here is an example
all: pradeep
hello: main.o sum.o hello.o
gcc main.o sum.o hello.o -o hello

main.o: main.c
gcc –c main.c

sum.o: sum.c
gcc –c sum.c

hello.o: hello.c
gcc –c hello.c


Method 4: using variables
CC=gcc
CFLAGS=-c -Wall

all: hello
hello: main.o sum.o hello.o
$(CC) main.o sum.o hello.o -o hello

main.o: main.c
$(CC) $(CFLAGS) main.c

sum.o: sum.c
$(CC) $(CFLAGS) sum.c

hello.o: hello.c
$(CC) $(CFLAGS) hello.c

Method 5:
With this brief introduction to Makefiles, you can create some very sophisticated mechanism for compiling your projects.
CC=gcc
CFLAGS=-c -Wall
LDFLAGS=
SOURCES=main.c hello.c sum.c
OBJECTS=$(SOURCES:.cpp=.o)
EXECUTABLE=hello

all: $(SOURCES) $(EXECUTABLE)
$(EXECUTABLE): $(OBJECTS)
$(CC) $(LDFLAGS) $(OBJECTS) -o $@

.c.o:
$(CC) $(CFLAGS) $< -o $@

If you understand this last example, you could adapt it to your own personal projects changing only 2 lines, no matter how many additional files you have !!!.
The above examples is tested only on linux and Windows also supports make utility (through nmake utility), the readers are advised to work on their own in Windows. the following link will show you the way to nmake utility
