Subject [jira] Commented: (STDCXX-13) implement Windows configuration
Date Tue, 23 Aug 2005 20:53:08 GMT
    [ ] 

Martin Sebor commented on STDCXX-13:

Here are some high-level requirements:

1. The configuration mechanism should be based on GNUmakefile.cfg:

2. It should probably take the form of a portable script (JScript or VBScript have been suggested
as possible languages).

3. The implementation should not depend on any third party tools, or anything other than what
comes with every version of Windows (ideally, starting with Windows 95) and the basic installation
of every version of Visual Studio (starting with 6.0).

The input to the script should be:

1. The root of the stdcxx source directory (analogous to TOPDIR) where to look for configuration

2. The set of compiler and linker options to build the configuration tests with.

3. The pathname of the config file to generate.

4. Optionally, the pathname of a log file to which to write the compilation and linking commands,
their output, and the results of the configuration tests.

The output should be:

1. The config file.

2. Progress messages sent to stdout.

3. Fatal error messages sent to stderr.

3. Optionally, the log file.
