The Aap program executes recipes. It is a kind of super-make program. In a recipe you describe how to perform a certain task. Like a Makefile it contains dependencies and build commands. Additionally, many powerful features are included, so that you can use a recipe to:

  • Build a program by just specifying the program name and the source files
  • Maintain a web site (the A-A-P site is generated and uploaded with a recipe)
  • Download the latest version of files
  • Distribute files to several servers at once
  • Obtain a module from CVS
  • Commit changes to CVS; add and remove files automatically
  • Generate and filter files
  • Build several variants and on multiple platforms with little effort
