I spend a lot of time trying to figure how i would go about on doing an automated build test environement for cascade. My previous e-mails where the fruit of that effort. I needed a way of starting a build over night (linux and/or NT) and get the fresh cvs/tested,ziped archieve in the morning.
I investigated the use of the automated gnu tools autoconf /automake for this software. I do not think that it is the best solution for cascade. mainly du to the simple way the code is layed out. Kudos for the guys that did this thing ! seriously it is (except that little inc/drv dir) a joy to see. I am guessing that the code must be generated somehow !
I also investigated the use of ant from the jakarta project ! To my utter disapointment it is not meant for cpp oriented projects.
I decided to make my own cross platform automated build tool based on python scripts. The solution will mainly fit my current needs. Which is building on linux & Nt. I hope someone will take the time to write the necessary driver for other platforms.
Also the dsp/dsw files will be generated on NT. In case you r also generating these files please direct me to where i can get the templates/format or i'll figure them up myself.
Thanks & have a nice day !
