The released versions of Fail-Safe C can be downloaded from the location below.
- Fail-Safe C version 1.6.0 (revision 2065)
- older versions
- Fail-Safe C version 1.5.0 (revision 1797)
- Fail-Safe C version 1.0.1 (revision 1735)
- Fail-Safe C version 1.0.0 (release 1, revision 1662)
The source-code of the Fail-Safe C is managed on our Subversion repository. The mostly current revision of the source code can be fetched using svn command via URL https://svn.rcis.jp/FailSafeC/pub/trunk/. The command
svn co https://svn.rcis.jp/FailSafeC/pub/trunk FailSafeC-trunk
will download the latest version of the compiler.
If your download fails with certificates problems, please install appropriate trusted root CA certificates into system. For example, in Debian GNU/Linux systems this can be achieved by installing the “ca-certificates” package and enable Mozilla-supplied root certificates (at least “DST_Root_CA_X3” certificate).
You can also browse the source code on web browsers via Trac interface https://trac.rcis.jp/FailSafeC/browser/pub/trunk/.
Known issue about repository access
I found that some of the commit logs to “pub/trunk” area are not visible through “svn log” command. I am considering some workaround (or fixing Subversion program) to this issue.
A similar thing is happening for source repository access via Trac interface. Please wait a while for resolving these problems. Thank you for your patience.
Technically, this happens when new files are merged from my private development/test branches (a) to the public trunk (b) using “svn merge” command. It generates the revision record that a file is copied from (a) to (b). Subversion treats that this revision’s log must be hidden because it leaks some information about a modification to unaccecible path (a), although the path (a) is actually not modified.
After downloading, proceed to the compilation.
Precompiled Binary Download
Currently there is a Debian-unofficial binary package for Debian GNU/Linux (etch and lenny).
Unofficial Debian packages
Unofficial Debian package for etch/lenny are available under https://www.rcis.aist.go.jp/project/FailSafeC/dists/ (or below http).
To download packages using APT system, please follow the following procedure:
1. Install my OpenPGP key as a trusted sign key.
wget -O- https://staff.aist.go.jp/y.oiwa/PGPkeys/yutaka-oiwa-pubkey-2008.asc | apt-key add -
The public key should only be fetched using secure transport. If your key download fails with certificates problems, either download using Web browsers, or install the “ca-certificates” package and enable Mozilla-supplied root certificates (at least “DigiCert High Assurance EV Root CA” certificate).
Note: This step is optional, but if omitted (not only my trustfulness but) transport-level package integrity is unassured. If you want not to register my key as globally trustful, I recommend to download packages manually via HTTPS.
2. Add one of the the following APT lines to /etc/apt/sources, according to your Debian’s release.
deb http://www.rcis.aist.go.jp/project/FailSafeC etch failsafec deb http://www.rcis.aist.go.jp/project/FailSafeC lenny failsafec
