__COPYRIGHT__ Adding a new Platform to the SCons distribution: -- Add the following files (aenf): src/engine/SCons/Platform/xxx.py Use one of the other Platform files as a template. The tool_list() function should return the list of tools that will be available through the default construction Environment. The generate() function should set construction variables: ENV OBJPREFIX OBJSUFFIX PROGPREFIX PROGSUFFIX LIBPREFIX LIBSUFFIX SHLIBPREFIX SHLIBSUFFIX LIBPREFIXES LIBSUFFIXES -- Modify the following files (aecp): doc/man/scons.1 Add the new platform to the example of the platform keyword when instantiating an Environment. Add the list of default tools returned by tool_list() for this platform. rpm/scons.spec Add to the list at the bottom of the file: /usr/lib/scons/SCons/Platform/xxx.py /usr/lib/scons/SCons/Platform/xxx.pyc [THIS LIST SHOULD BE GENERATED FROM MANIFEST.in, AND WILL BE SOME DAY.] src/CHANGES.txt Add mention of the new Platform specification. src/engine/MANIFEST.in Add to the list: SCons/Platform/xxx.py src/engine/SCons/Platform/Platform/PlatformTests.py Copy and paste one of the other platform tests to verify the ability to initialize an environment through a call to the object returned by Platform('xxx') src/engine/SCons/Platform/__init__.py Add logic to platform_default() (if necessary) to return the appropriate platform string. test/Platform.py Add the new platform to the SConstruct and SConscript files.
