I finished up some changes a few hours ago, however
I'm trying to get something out of the (virtual) door in another project, so I
won't be able to commit till tomorrow.
I've added "if" and "unless" attributes to
<define> and <undefine> which appear in <defineset>. I
haven't done it yet, but I expect to do the same for
WindowsNamingScheme was case-sensitive, it would
not recognize a *.LIB as a library file. I rewrote AbstractNamingSchema in
terms of virtual endsWith and startsWith functions that
WindowsNamingScheme overloads with case-insensitive
When <FileSet> appears as a child of
<LibrarySet>, the dir attribute is optional (unlike other usages of
FileSet). When omitted, the patterns are checked against all directories
appearing in the library path environment variable (compiler
specific, currently only implemented for MSVC which uses the LIB
environment variable), all matching filenames are added and duplicate filenames
are discarded. This allows constructs like:
The compile task appears to be creating a process
for each source file compiled. I believe may result in a pretty
substantial performance hit compared to compiling multiple files per process
creation. Or at least that used to be the case.
I've gotten further in my Xerces-C compile.
With these fixes, I can build xerces-c.dll on Windows using MSVC and will expand
the build to GCC (Cygwin and Linux) and BCC before looking at performance
