Subject [Couchdb Wiki] Update of "Tips & Tricks for developers" by JanLehnardt

Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Couchdb Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by JanLehnardt:

New page:
Collecting tips and tricks that makes a CouchDB developer's life easier.

If you find yourself building CouchDB from scratch a lot the following shell script function
might save some typing. This is sh-script, but only tested on bash. Add it to your `.bashrc`
or `.profile` file or wherever you store shell customisations.

    if test -z "$1"; then
        echo "speficy target dir"
    ./bootstrap && \
    ./configure --prefix=$1 && \
    make -j4 && \
    make install

It gives you a new command in your shell `buildcouch` (just change the function name if you
don't like it).

cd Work/couchdb/trunk
buildcouch /path/to/testinstall
