For the examples: see the folder demos/

HOW TO CREATE THE WAF SCRIPT
----------------------------

Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.0, 3.1, 3.2, 3.3 or 3.4 is required to generate the waf script. The waf script is then the version that can run on Python 2.5.
Just execute:
$ ./waf-light configure build
Or, if you have several python versions installed:
$ python3 ./waf-light configure build

The Waf tools in waflib/extras are not added to the waf script. To add
some of them, use the --tools switch:
$ ./waf-light --tools=compat15,swig

To add a tool that does not exist in the folder extras, pass an absolute path, and
to customize the initialization, pass the parameter 'prelude'. Here is for example
how to create a waf file using the compat15 module:
$ ./waf-light --tools=compat15 --prelude=$'\tfrom waflib.extras import compat15\n'

Any kind of initialization is possible, though one may prefer the build system kit (folder build_system_kit):
$ ./waf-light --make-waf --tools=compat15,/comp/waf/aba.py --prelude=$'\tfrom waflib.extras import compat15\n\tprint("ok")'

Or if you do not want to regenerate the waf file all the time, set the WAFDIR environment variable to the directory containing "waflib".

HOW TO TRY THE EXAMPLES
-----------------------

Try this:
$ cp waf demos/c/
$ cd demos/c/
$ ./waf configure build
