1. Dependencies
p≡p engine is depending on the following FOSS libraries:
* a fork of libetpan, see
7 years ago
git clone
* zlib, see
Oh yeah? Where?
* OpenSSL, see
Oh yeah? Where?
* iconv, see
* Cyrus SASL, see
Oh yeah? Where?
* One of the following OpenPGP implementations:
* GnuPG via GPGME, version 1.6.0 or newer, see
* NetPGP/p≡p, see
* libcurl
Maybe on iOS?
compile-time dependencies:
* Asn1c, download from . Debian 8's v0.9.24 does not work. Debian 9's v0.9.27 generates non-POSIX code, that will cause issues when the engine is compiled with '-std=c99'. Thus, use v0.9.28 for best results.
* yml2, which needs lxml (where to get?)
* One of the following build systems
* GNU make
* Visual Studio 2015

p≡p Engine uses two databases: ~/.pEp_management (on *NIX) or

%LOCALAPPDATA%\pEp\management.db on Windoze respectively, and
/usr/local/share/system.db on *NIX or %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\pEp\system.db

respectively. The latter contains the Trustwords dbs.

The managment db is being created by the first call of init() of p≡p Engine. It

does not need to be created manually. system.db is being created by using the
DDL in db/create_system_db.sql the content is created by db/
out of hunspell's dictionary packages (or something similar) and then being
imported using sqlite3's .import command. Dictionary files for different
languages are part of p≡p engine source distribution.
$ make db
$ make -C db install

Both Python tools have a switch --help
5. How to run the tests
You have to import all the test keys into your local gpg instance:
cd test
cat 0x*.asc *_sec.asc| gpg --import
