;;; Commentary:

;; Under OpenVMS the standard make-like program is called MMS, which
;; looks for an input file in the default directory named DESCRIP.MMS
;; and runs the DCL command rules therein.  As of 2003, the build
;; process requires a hand translation of the and related
;; Emacs-specific methodology to DCL and TPU commands, so to alleviate
;; this pain, we provide `make-mms-derivative', which given a source
;; FILENAME (under `make-mms-derivative-root-dir'), inserts the file
;; contents in a new buffer and loads FILENAME-2mms.  The elisp in the
;; -2mms file can (do whatever -- it's emacs -- and) arrange to write
;; out the modified buffer after FILENAME-2mms loading by using:
;;  (make-mms-derivative-data 'write-under-root RELATIVE-FILENAME)
;; where RELATIVE-FILENAME is something like "src/descrip.mms_in_in".
;; Over the long run, the convenience procedures provided (see source)
;; will be augmented by factoring maximally the -2mms files, squeezing
;; as much algorithm out of those nasty heuristics as possible.  What
;; makes them nasty is not that they rely on the conventions of the
;; Emacs makefiles; that's no big deal.  What makes them nasty is that
;; they rely on the conventions of separately maintained tools (namely
;; Autoconf 1.11 under OpenVMS and the rest of GNU), and the separation
;; of conventions is how people drift apart, dragging their software
;; behind mercilessly.
;; In general, codified thought w/o self-synchronization is doomed.
;; That a generation would eat its young (most discriminatingly, even)
;; is no reason GNU cannot build around such woe.
