Subject RE: Win32 Build Structure
Date Tue, 21 Mar 2000 15:23:09 GMT
I finally got a chance to download and build Apache 2.0 on my NT box 
last night.  I was wondering about the makeup of the build 
system.  The top-level Makefile.nt is just an NMAKE makefile, and 
there is no workspace, while all of the subprojects it calls are mak 
files generated from .DSP files, each with their own workspace (or at 
least some with their own workspace.)

Is there any reason that the top-level makefile is not also a DSP, 
with an exported .mak?  If done properly, using project dependencies, 
this would get rid of all that %SHORT% %LONG%  garbage that has been 
giving people problems over the last couple days.  I'd be willing to 
generate the DSP and DSW for this if there is interest, and if there 
aren't any technical reasons not to.  I much prefer building from the 
IDE than building from the command line, so I built a makefile 
project that wraps Makefile.nt, and the DSW for that project.  If 
nothing else, I can contribute those.
