Subject Re: [PATCH] flood: Fixed floodenv.bat environment problem in Makefile.win.
Date Tue, 04 Feb 2003 20:17:26 GMT
Thanks for the review and feedback, Bill.

I agree with your assessment of the floodenv.bat changes to invoke other
programs.  In my dealings with DevStudio DSP files and NMAKE makefiles,
I've always found myself juggling environment variables with similar
contortions.

Do we need to support the IDE environments with DSP/DSW files (and also
the newer IDE formats)?  As the IDE-based file formats have changed over
the course of several VC++ releases, NMAKE has remain consistent.  I've
also found it easier to maintain the NMAKE makefiles than the DSP files
(stable syntax, consolidate common settings in include makefiles, less
noise than IDE-generated files, etc.).

So, I advocate keeping the build system in NMAKE makefiles.  If we
do need to support IDE users, I would have the DSP invoke the NMAKE
makefiles and specify debug/release.  The goal is to keep the compiling
and linking in the NMAKE makefiles.
