digitalmars.D - Build Hacks

I really love Derek's Build tool.  I started playing
around with it and performed two minor hacks:

1. Build now searches the source directory for
build.cfg in addition to other directories.  This
allows me to customize my build config on a
per-project basis.
(added one line to ProcessBuildConfig())

2. I alphabetized the -help text and made it easier
to read (IMO).

I don't know how to contact Derek, so I thought I'd
offer up my changes here.  Just use my modified
build.d, which you can download here:

http://studiotekne.com/build.d

in place of the one that comes with the
build v.2.09 source distribution, which you can
download here:

http://trac.dsource.org/projects/build/

Great ideas. Consider them included in the next release. These had been in the back of my mind for ages.

You just did, but try http://trac.dsource.org/projects/build/ next time. There you can enter your requests and updates directly using the 'ticket' system. -- Derek

Thanks, it wasn't immediately apparent to me what a "ticket" was :)
