Full description '''Please note, this package is no longer '''Please note, this package is no longer being maintained.''' CONS is a replacement for 'make.' It is not compatible with make, but it offers features not found in make or other build tools including: * integrated dependency analysis (no more "make depend" to generate static lists of .h files) * complete, non-recursive dependency analysis across multiple directories; * multiple side-by-side variant builds; * compilation from MD5 signatures instead of time stamps for determining whether a file is up-to-date * extensibility via Perl. CONS is implemented in Perl. You don't need to know Perl to use CONS, although you can use it more powerfully if you do. you can use it more powerfully if you do.
