How to build the project

To build MASM, your system must contain:

  • Python3 (to run the installer script)
  • Manatee-open (at least the core shared libraries)
  • Go language (to compile MASM)

To start the building process, just run:

./build3 [manatee version]

The concrete supported versions of Manatee-open are: 2.167.8, 2.167.10, 2.208. Once build, a standalone binary masm3 should be created in the working directory.
