ALinkCreatorConsole (alcc) is a command-line-version of alc, a tool for calculating and creating eD2k-links for files on your computer without running aMule, even if you compiled with the --disable-monolithic-Flag and don't have it installed. alcc can create Part-Hashes, and include them into the eD2k-link.
For a short description of the usage see this article.

Installing alcc

Many of not most distros have an aMule package in their repositories. If you install aMule by means of RPM, DEB, or other package management system, alcc will be included in the installation.

This is the easiest and preferred method of installing alcc.

Compiling alcc

If you have not installed aMule by means of a package, you will need to compile it from source.

alcc is not compiled separately; it is compiled at the same time you compile aMule by using the --enable-alcc flag when you run configure. (See the Main Page for links to pages on compiling aMule for various operating systems).


If you intend to build an rpm by using the specfile, aMule is shipped with, you need to add the entry %{_bindir}/alcc in the file-section. Otherise, an error message will displayed, "/usr/bin/alcc installed but not packaged",and rpmbuild will abort.
