New well tested makepp snapshot released


Daniel Pfeiffer

Makepp, a build program which has a number of features that allow for
reliable builds and simpler build files, is a drop-in replacement for
GNU make. It supports almost all of the syntax that GNU make supports,
and can be used with makefiles produced by utilities such as automake.
It is called makepp (or make++) because it was designed with special
support for C++, which has since been extended to other languages like
Swig or embedded SQL. Also its relationship to make is analogous to
C++'s relationship to C: it is almost 100% backward compatible but adds
a number of new features and much better ways to write makefiles.

Here's again a new well tested beta snapshot. By request there is a new
rule modifier :include allowing to profit from gcc -MD, IBM xlc -M (and
with a trick even MS cl) on-the-fly dependency writing (which normally
collides with makepp's discovery of dependencies before building).
Besides there are some bug fixes, most notably a workaround for a Perl
5.12.0 crash in makepplog.
