                 SCons - a software construction tool

                         Version __VERSION__


This is an alpha release of SCons, a tool for building software (and
other files).  SCons is implemented in Python, and its "configuration
files" are actually Python scripts, allowing you to use the full power
of a real scripting language to solve build problems.  You do not,
however, need to know Python to use SCons effectively.


LATEST VERSION
==============

Before going further, you can check that this package you have is
the latest version by checking the SCons download page at:

        http://www.scons.org/download.html


ABOUT SCONS PACKAGES
====================

The complete SCons system is comprised of three separate packages:

    scons
        The scons script itself, plus the SCons build engine
        installed into an SCons-specific library directory.

    python-scons
        The SCons build engine, installed into the standard
        Python library directory.

    scons-script [THIS PACKAGE]
        Only the scons script itself.

Depending on what you want to do with SCons, you may need to install
additional (or other) packages:

    If you just want to use scons (the script) to build software:

        Do NOT install this package.  Install the scons package instead,
        which contains a copy of both the script and the build engine.
        You will not need to install any other packages.

    If you do NOT want to use the scons script, but you want to use the
    SCons build engine in other Python software:

        Do NOT install this package.  Install the python-scons package
        instead.

    If you want to use the scons script AND you want to use the SCons
    build engine in other Python software:

        Do NOT install this package.  Install both the scons and
        python-scons packages instead.

        Note that this installs two separate copies of the build engine,
        one (in an SCons-specific library directory) used by the scons
        script itself and one (in the standard Python library) used by
        other software.  This allows you the flexibility to upgrade
        one build engine without affecting the other.

    If you want the scons script and other Python software to use the
    same version of the build engine:

        Install this package AND the python-scons package.


INSTALLATION
============

To install this package, simply run the provided Python-standard setup
script as follows:

        # python setup.py

You should have system installation privileges (that is, "root" or
"Administrator") when running the setup.py script.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
