Subject [jira] Created: (STDCXX-517) No required options for generate.bat script
Date Fri, 10 Aug 2007 05:15:42 GMT
No required options for generate.bat script

                 Key: STDCXX-517
             Project: C++ Standard Library
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 4.2
         Environment: All Windows platforms
            Reporter: Eric Lemings
             Fix For: 4.1.2

The generate.bat script currently requires two options: /BUILDDIR and /CONFIG.  Unless there's
a valid reason NOT to do so, the generate.bat script should preset or determine the following
values for these options when the user does not specify their own value.  /BUILDDIR should
default to the source directory; that is, the same directory containing the generate.bat script.
 For the /CONFIG option, the script should probe the build environment for all possible/supported
Windows compilers currently installed and then sanity check each one that is found.  If it
finds no sane compilers, the script should probably issue a warning and just exit.  If only
one compiler is found, configure all distribution files to build with that compiler.  If more
than one compiler is found, set the target compiler to the first one found in predefined order
of preference.  (This order could be for instance, MSVC 8, 7, ..., Intel C++ 10, 9, 8, etc,
Cygwin GCC, Mingw, Borland, etc.)
