separate target for iOS. Therefore, the target must be changed to iOS before the library can be
compiled for this target. Changing the target is very easy, just click on the blue FreeType
workspace, activate the tab "Build Settings", and select iOS as new base SDK:
That's it, click on compile & run and the library will be compiled. When the scheme

Compiling on the Command Line
The build process via the command line is very similar in comparison to Linux and UNIX
