Subject src/ directory
Date Sat, 13 Jan 2001 17:12:45 GMT
One of my latest problems dealing with APR's multiple directories was find
the objects to link. There were two problems with this, one caused by lack
of src/, and one partly:

1) If src/ existed in APR, then finding the objects would be a simple "find"
   call. As it is, I must iterate over all the subdirectories and piecemeal
   build up the list of objects.
   [ this is used for linking and date detection ]

2) A simple find does work because of the presence of MM in there. A better
   organization would be apr/src/ and apr/mm/. That would allow a simple
   "find" for the src objects, and it would clarify that MM is a subpackage
   rather than part of the source lump.

So... that's my report on dealing with APR's multiple directories, as
opposed to APRUTIL's single directory.

Of course, my previous comments on simplicity, cleanliness, and
understandability of the top-level (when src/ is used) still apply.
