Subject Re: Dealing with Large/Complex Dependencies (e.g. Windows Platform SDK)
Date Tue, 23 Mar 2010 01:38:32 GMT
I don't know from Windows so this may be a dumb question... do you have a
tools issue or a data entry issue?

In other words, if you have to type in 3000 things by hand, it doesn't
really matter what tool you're using, it's going to suck. On the other hand,
if you have the dependency information already electronic, then with some
scripting/programming you should be able to transform that into ivy files
(or whatever else) fairly easily...
