RRDtool source is stored on GitHub and this is also where development happens. Just fork the repository, make changes and send me a pull request.

Note that the version number in the header of the source files you get from github may be 'off' this is because the version number gets set by the release script prior to building the archive.

When building from a git clone, run ./MakeMakefile first to build the configure system and then make sure to run ./configure --enable-maintainer-mode prior before 'makeing' modified source, to ensure that all bits get properly rebuilt.

NOTE: The content of this website is accessible with any browser. The graphical design though relies completely on CSS2 styles. If you see this text, this means that your browser does not support CSS2. Consider upgrading to a standard conformant browser like Mozilla Firefox or Opera but also Apple's Safari or KDE's Konqueror for example. It may also be that you are looking at a mirror page which did not copy the CSS for this page. Or if some pictu res are missing, then the mirror may not have picked up the contents of the inc directory.
