QCTOOL is available either as binaries or as source code. The recommended approach is to download and compile the QCTOOL source code on the machine(s) you will be working on. However, for convenience a small number of precompiled binary packages are provided below. These provided as-is and will not work on all platforms; if a suitable version is not available please download the QCTOOL source code and compile instead.

The source code to qctool is available as a fossil repository at https://code.enkre.net/qctool. To obtain source code, use the fossil command-line client, or alternatively download a tarball or zip file from this table. (Note that these files are currently generated on the fly, which may take a while).
|release||zip file or tarball||https://code.enkre.net/qctool/zip/release/qctool.zip https://code.enkre.net/qctool/tarball/release/qctool.tgz|

As of version 2.1, QCTOOL will follow a versioning scheme whereby odd minor numbers (2.1.x etc.) represent development work while even numbers (2.0.x) represent release versions. The current latest release versions are 2.0 version.
Having downloaded the source code (and extracted it if necessary), a basic compilation sequence would then be:
$ cd qctool $ ./waf-1.5.18 configure $ ./waf-1.5.18
If all is successful, this produces an executable
You can check qctool is working by running it:
$ ./build/release/qctool_v2.0-<version> -help
which should print out a list of options.
The QCTOOL wiki contains further information which may be useful if you are unable to compile QCTOOL or need to tweak compilation for specific platforms.
