> -------------------------------------------
>                 Key: STDCXX-517
>                 URL:
>             Project: C++ Standard Library
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>    Affects Versions: 4.2
>         Environment: All Windows platforms

> 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.)
