 I downloaded a c++ program for a software that i want to use, with the following directories : CHANGELOG LICENSE README.md build doc include src The code is a bit old , and i want to compile it from a linux terminal , i know that i have to use gcc and make for that( that's all the install details says) but the src directories containing cpp files doesnt have a 'main.cpp' file , the build contains one file : Makefile What are the steps to follow to use this software , and how can i compile this with no main.cpp I'm using gcc version 4.8.4 (Ubuntu 4.8.4-2ubuntu1~14.04.3) and GNU Make 3.81 ; but the program is a bit old ( 2011)

 Without testing, could you try something like: $apt install cmake make gcc g++$ cd build $cmake .$ make . \$ make install
