Subject Re: [Bug 1463] New - Include a script/program to generate standard Makefiles from build.xml
Date Mon, 23 Apr 2001 20:02:07 GMT
Trying using Imake and Imakefiles.
That's what Imake is for - to create
Makefiles. 

I really don't see a need for Ant to create Makefiles,
although no reason individual groups coouldn't do
it. Just don't see a need for it to be officially supported.

And, what kind of system are you running on where the
time taken to start the JVM is signifigant compare to
the total build time??? I have ant based builds that
take anywhere from 15 minutes to 1 hour. What is a few
extra seconds to start the JVM???
