The cpptasks is a great way of specifying a build
from a high to mid level abstraction. I enjoy working with it versus a
manual glob compilation and link with a ant project using my own
properties. I would post my cpptasks build example for Sun because it works
well. I am pleased to some extent with Aix and HPUX, but am not compiling and
linking shared objects yet because my referenced compiler arguments are not
being used. Why, I don't
Is there a posting, an example, a contribution on
what we should add as compiler and linker args (defaults for shared, static,
exe...)? This is a great tool and would like to get involved with it more, but
if all we are going to do is gcc and msvc examples, is a poor showing with a
wide audience of potential users.
If we specify a shared obj as a link type,
what are the defaults for compile and link with specific named
If we specify an executable type what are the
defaults relative to the specific compiler?
Is there a javadoc someplace?
Are there examples for the compilers and linkers
that can be posted. Trail and error is a little too time consuming.
I would like to share my experience with others and
would like to see this tool become a part of ant or a plugin.
Keep up the good work. I may think about
joining the development effort.
