Here is the output that I get when I run build: 6:17:43.07>build Path and Version : d:\bin\build.exe v1.20(700) built on Fri Apr 8 11:43:17 2005 Is this correct? Since you called it version 2.00(.700), it does not look the same. Of course, versioning is not my strength. :-) Again, thanks for this utility! It has saved my typing life inmensely! josť

No it wasn't correct. I compiled the executable before I updated the version number. I've got the correct one uploaded now. The (.700) is just the internal build number for the application. It gets automatically updated whenever it generate a new executable for 'Build'.
 Again, thanks for this utility!  It has saved my typing life inmensely!

You're welcome. However, I made it for selfish reasons - I'm lazy. ;-) -- Derek Melbourne, Australia 8/04/2005 2:29:50 PM

Yep. Just downloaded it and it's now jicman approved. :-)

My friend, I wouldn't call it lazy. You are a great time saver. You don't like to waste time typing lots of libraries when you could simply just write a program to do that job for you... yeah, that's it. ;-) jic

 You can get it from 
 
  http://www.dsource.org/projects/build/
 
 The next major enhancements are expected to include ...
 
 ** support for macro preprocessors
 ** building multiple applications in one invocation.
 ** building multiple editions of an application in one invocation.
 

Nice, though I myself do not need so much extra functionality! Maybe you can do some versioning in the code so when you compile build you can choose which features you want and don't want, as I assume the more features the longer it takes to execute the dependency trees etc? maybe like... version(BUILD_BASIC) { ... basic version of build } version(BUILD_SWISSKNIFE) { ... supports all the neat build only things like macros's and others }

Well, if it ever gets to be a problem I'll consider that. Currently, to do a full compile of the Mango library takes about 2-3 seconds, the Phobos library about the same. So I don't think that providing the enhancements mentioned above is really going to add anymore than a few milliseconds to it. -- Derek Parnell Melbourne, Australia 9/04/2005 6:41:23 AM

Forgive my ignorance, but now that I think about it, a feature should only make build run slower if you decide to use it with the -feature switch? If yes, than I know upgrading won't hurt builds awesome performance :-)

Excellent!

Mr. Parnell, build is realy a great project.

I like Your coding style as well (no javaLikeMethodNames() ... :)
I'll recommend build to my friends as well, that's for sure!

Kind regards

To add import feature to be able to write
something like this:

static ubyte[] myBinResource = import filename.ext;

Being preprocessed will generate

static ubyte[] myBinResource =
[
    0x01, 0x02, .... // all other bytes from filename.ext
]

Huh?
