Subject Ant for non-java apps
Date Sat, 30 Nov 2002 10:04:15 GMT

What is the general view about using Ant as a build system for
non-java applications?

Is there anyone who has come across/used Ant for large projects
where the programming language is not Java? Say C/C++, etc?
And where traditionally Make is used?

By large project, I mean something like a mini distribution of Linux.
I'm exploring options of alternate build systems for something as
dependency-ridden as this.

Ant was recommended to me for its XML build system and
good dependancy resolving ability, but having taken a look at it,
I have apprehensions of using it for a non-java based project.

Opinions would be appreciated.
