Build Flickcurl library and flickcurl(1) utility

This section describes using the deprecated legacy Flickr authentication. See the Flickr OAuth authentication

  $ ./configure
  $ make

Add the utils directory to your shell search path:

  $ PATH=`pwd`/utils:$PATH
on bourne shells such as Bash or
  $ setenv PATH `pwd`/utils:$PATH
on c shells such as tcsh

You should get an error if you now try the utility:

  $ flickcurl photos.getInfo 1234567
  flickcurl: ERROR: No shared secret
  flickcurl: Command photos.getInfo failed

This is because there is no configuration set for the library. For the flickcurl(1) utility, it reads the configuration from a file ~/.flickcurl.conf which contains parameters used for authentication. This section describes how those parameters are obtained.
