Subject improving Windows build logs
Date Mon, 10 Sep 2007 15:49:49 GMT
I find the Windows build logs very hard to read, and exceedingly
difficult to find errors in. One big problem, IMO, is all the junk
(presumably) emitted by IDE to tell us what the command line looks
like. What can be done about this to make the Windows logs as
readable as the UNIX ones?

For instance, here's the output of building the accumulate example
with Intel C++:

Build started: Project: accumulate, Configuration: 12d Optimized 
Thread-safe Dll|Win32

Contrast that to the gcc log on CygWin:
