Subject RE: Using ANT with 'C' projects - need help
Date Fri, 20 Jun 2003 16:05:03 GMT
I'm just learning ANT but have used make extensively in the past.

ANT seems to be very Java specific as it does not have default build rules
for C++ or VB like it does for java compiles.

So far it does not seem to be very hard to create a build target with an
EXEC command that calls the VC++ command line with he proper params.  I'm
still working on the nested build/include concept to do the entire system
and how to deal with my hidden dependencies and circular build issues.

So ya, it can do C++ builds, if it's better than Make remains to be seen.

Could you please tell if ANT can be used for building 'C'
language projects. If so, is it really effective to use ANT
instead of MAKE?
