Give me your poor, your hungry, your Rakefiles


#1

So lets get this summer of code thing started.

I figure the best way to pull Rakefile generation code into a library
is to have lots of Rakefiles to work with. I’m specificly looking for
Rakefiles used to compile C programs, but I’m happy to look at common
elements of whatever you have.

If you’d also like to send Makefiles for extensions to Ruby, I’d like
to look at those as well to compare structure.

Send them this way guys. We want to be open, but I don’t want to clog
up ruby-talk with posts full of Make and Rakefiles… does it make
sense to post here or email them to me? Send kevin dot clark at gmail
dot com if that’s the right choice. Additionally, I’ll have the
RubyForge project setup today and we can get a simple mailing list
going for people interested in advising and helping out.

I’ve gotten a few good examples. Keep em coming folks. Rakefiles in
general, but those compiling C programs or C extensions preferably.

You could maybe have a look at Rant: it seems[1] much more powerful when
it
comes to compiling stuff (built-in dependency checking, command change
recognition, etc…). I bet you can steal a few ideas from there.

Thanks Mauricio, I’ll take a look.
