The autogen. The most important of these is the configure script that offers a number of different options to customize the build process. In this chapter, we will build the bitcoind client with all the default features. Next, run the configure script to automatically discover all the necessary libraries and create a customized build script for your system:. If all goes well, the configure command will end by creating the customized build scripts that will allow us to compile bitcoind.

If there are any missing libraries or errors, the configure command will terminate with an error instead of creating the build scripts. If an error occurs, it is most likely because of a missing or incompatible library. Review the build documentation again and make sure you install the missing prerequisites. Then run configure again and see if that fixes the error. Next, you will compile the source code, a process that can take up to an hour to complete. During the compilation process you should see output every few seconds or every few minutes, or an error if something goes wrong.

The compilation process can be resumed at any time if interrupted. Type make to start compiling:. If all goes well, bitcoind is now compiled. The final step is to install the bitcoind executable into the system path using the make command:. You can confirm that bitcoin is correctly installed by asking the system for the path of the two executables, as follows:.

You can shorten the blockchain initialization time by downloading a partial copy of the blockchain using a BitTorrent client from SourceForge. Run bitcoind in the background with the option -daemon :. The command line allows us to experiment interactively with the capabilities that are also available programmatically via the API. To start, invoke the help command to see a list of the available bitcoin RPC commands:.

Use bitcoin-cli to run it:. Among this data we see the version numbers for the bitcoin software client , protocol , and wallet We see the current balance contained in the wallet, which is zero. We see the current block height, showing us how many blocks are known to this client We also see various statistics about the bitcoin network and the settings related to this client. We will explore these settings in more detail in the rest of this chapter. You can check its progress using getinfo to see the number of known blocks.

Commands: encryptwallet , walletpassphrase. Before you proceed with creating keys and other commands, you should first encrypt the wallet with a password. You can verify the wallet has been encrypted by running getinfo again. This is a counter showing how long the wallet decryption password will be stored in memory, keeping the wallet unlocked.

At first this will be set to zero, meaning the wallet is locked:. To unlock the wallet, issue the walletpassphrase command, which takes two parameters—the password and a number of seconds until the wallet is locked again automatically a time counter :. You can confirm the wallet is unlocked and see the timeout by running getinfo again:.

Commands: backupwallet , importwallet , dumpwallet. Next, we will practice creating a wallet backup file and then restoring the wallet from the backup file. Use the backupwallet command to back up, providing the filename as the parameter. Here we back up the wallet to the file wallet. Now, to restore the backup file, use the importwallet command. If your wallet is locked, you will need to unlock it first see walletpassphrase in the preceding section in order to import the backup file:. The dumpwallet command can be used to dump the wallet into a text file that is human-readable:.

Commands: getnewaddress, getreceivedbyaddress, listtransactions, getaddressesbyaccount, getbalance. The bitcoin reference client maintains a pool of addresses, the size of which is displayed by keypoolsize when you use the command getinfo. These addresses are generated automatically and can then be used as public receiving addresses or change addresses. To get one of these addresses, use the getnewaddress command:.

Now, we can use this address to send a small amount of bitcoin to our bitcoind wallet from an external wallet assuming you have some bitcoin in an exchange, web wallet, or other bitcoind wallet held elsewhere. For this example, we will send 50 millibits 0. We can now query the bitcoind client for the amount received by this address, and specify how many confirmations are required before an amount is counted in that balance.
