I am trying to install BAP: Binary Analysis Platform in ubuntu 14.04. I am getting this error:

configure: error: Iberty library not found".  
  • This is a question answerable with "yes" or "no". Why are you asking about the capabilities of people? Are you looking to hire someone with specific knowledge? Would you not rather ask how to get rid of the error? – Anthon Oct 11 '14 at 7:04
  • yes i am sorry for the question. I just wanted to get rid of the problem. I AM NOT ASKING ABOUT CAPABILITIES. By the way I did not know people also test others English here as well. :) – D.L. Oct 13 '14 at 13:50
  • A clear, crisp question, with little ambiguity gets better answers quicker. I (and a quite a few others) don't just want to help, but also get/keep the site in shape (the former sometimes seems easier :-) ).. – Anthon Oct 13 '14 at 14:09
  • I updated my answer, sorry for the confusion (if that works, just completely delete your answer) – Anthon Oct 13 '14 at 14:20

The Iberty library is part of libiberty-dev on Ubuntu 14.04 (it used to be in binutils-dev on 12.04):

$ sudo apt-get install libiberty-dev
$ dpkg -L libiberty-dev | grep -F iberty.a
  • apt-file search iberty – Faheem Mitha Oct 11 '14 at 7:38

    @FaheemMitha And how do you find out how to install apt-file, as it isn't installed by default ;-) – Anthon Oct 11 '14 at 7:40

    Er, what? apt-get install apt-file. – Faheem Mitha Oct 11 '14 at 7:52
