Compiling from source code

For other platforms, WhiteboxTools can be compiled from the source code with the following steps:

    1. Install the Rust compiler; Rustup is recommended for this purpose. Further instruction can be found at this link.
    2. Download the WhiteboxTools source code. To download the code, click the green Clone or download button on the GitHub repository site.
    3. Decompress the zipped download file.
    4. Open a terminal (command prompt) window and change the working directory to the whitebox_tools sub-folder, which is contained within the decompressed downloaded Whitebox folder.
    5. At the command prompt, type: >> cd /path/to/folder/whitebox_tools/
    6.  Finally, use the rust package manager Cargo, which will be installed along with Rust, to compile the executable, by typing the following at the command prompt: >> cargo build –release 

Depending on your system, the compilation may take several minutes. When completed, the compiled binary executable file will be contained within the whitebox_tools/target/release/ folder. Copy and paste this file into the WBT folder. You may type ./whitebox_tools –help at the command prompt (after cd’ing to the containing folder) for information on how to run the executable from the terminal.
