Along with the base development tools including a c++ compiler, ensure you have the following dependencies:

Fetch All Addresses Ever[edit]

To get all addresses and their balance ever used, use:

# ./parser allBalances > all.txt

To limit this to only addresses with a minimum amount, use:

# ./parser allBalances -w 10 > 10btcOrMore.txt
