Release 2.09 (build #1197) is now available.

URL: http://www.dsource.org/projects/build/ 

v2.09 changes 
--------------
** FIX: thanks to barrett9h (rodolfo): Now correctly handles the return
value from Unix system() call. 

** FIX: thanks to oniony: Now handles non_ASCII characters in PATH
environment symbol. 

** CHG: The "-silent" switch now also hides the linker stdout display. 

** CHG: Now supports and requires DMD v0.126 and GDC v0.13 or later. 

** ENH: New pragma(export_version) allows specified version identifiers to
be passed to all modules being compiled.

** ENH: New command line switch "-run" to run the program after a
successful link.

I love the "-run" switch! It saves me two keystrokes for every build. Thank you!

Derek, I just want to say: thank you for Build. Not only has it worked wonders for my own work, but has really helped me in turning people on to D. Being able to say "You can do complex builds without a makefile or an IDE with one command" is a very powerful statement, especially in the midst of J2EE developers. Thank you. - EricAnderton at yahoo

Agreed. It's the best compilation program I've ever seen. Not having to painstakingly type a 500-character compilation command is the best thing since sliced arrays.
 Being able to say "You can do complex builds without a makefile or an IDE with

Mr. Parnell,
i've just downloaded .zip file (src) and tried to build "build" on my
GNU/Linux box. I have few notes about Makefile.unix and source archive.
1) There are no two files ( util/bmscanner.d and util/bmscanner_bn.d ) in
it.
2) Makefile refers to them, so it is not possible to do successfull build
without altering Makefile.unix.
3) After I removed them from SOURCES list and tried to "make clean", I
realized it does not clean "util" directory.

I am sure You can fix this, so I do not have to send You patch. :)

Kind regards and thanks for this wanderfull tool, even though I do not
seriously use it - I still prefer writing simple Makefile.

I imagine RDF's ( file:///c:/WINDOWS/TEMP/RULE_DEFINITION_FILE.htm ) could be used to teach Build to work with C, C++, C#. To be universally useful, and not just for mixed-language D projects, Build would probably need some tweakage, but still. I could be wrong. -- Chris Sauls

Well actually, Build can almost do this. You can use build to 'compile' any file explicitly mentioned in the pragma(build). Look up the "Rule Definition File" stuff in the documentation for details. This means you can create a D module that looks like a makefile ... version(build) { pragma(build, "images.rc"); pragma(build, "special.c"); pragma(build, "matrix.for"); } And it will use the rule definitions to determine if the file needs to be 'compiled' and how to 'compile' it. I can extend this to command line files too I suppose.

Well, then we just have to let build call javac for java files to have a general solution. Maybe similar things can be done with other languages, too? This way build could, for example, build some project with mixed java/D source files :)
