( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
The requirement is to maintain a configuration file from which software can be built, rather than have to build it manually, which leads to uncertain and untestable deliverables. Some relief from make could be obtained using the dependency management supplied with your version control system (e.g. git). But the most obvious format to replace makefiles with is XML (and lo and behold, a bit of googling leads to a tool called XMake - makefile functionality based on XML files)

One world, one people

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
