 .TP
+.RI FindPathDirs( variable )
+Returns a function
+(actually a callable Python object)
+intended to be used as the
+.B path_function
+of a Scanner object.
+The returned object will look up the specified
+.I variable
+in a construction environment
+and treat the construction variable's value as a list of
+directory paths that should be searched
+(like
+.BR CPPPATH ,
+.BR LIBPATH ,
+etc.).
+
+Note that use of
+.BR FindPathDirs ()
+is generally preferable to
+writing your own
+.B path_function
+for the following reasons:
+1) The returned list will contain all appropriate directories
+found in source trees
+(when
+.BR BuildDir ()
+is used)
+or in code repositories
+(when
+.BR Repository ()
+or the
+.B \-Y
+option are used).
+2) scons will identify expansions of
+.I variable
+that evaluate to the same list of directories as,
+in fact, the same list,
+and avoid re-scanning the directories for files,
+when possible.
+
+Example:
+
+.ES
+def my_scan(node, env, path, arg):
+    # Code to scan file contents goes here...
+    return include_files
+
+scanner = Scanner(name = 'myscanner',
+                  function = my_scan,
+                  path_function = FindPathDirs('MYPATH'))
+.EE

+Note that curly braces braces may also be used
+to enclose arbitrary Python code to be evaluated.
+(In fact, this is how the above modifiers are substituted,
+they are simply attributes of the Python objects
+that represent TARGET, SOURCES, etc.)
+See the section "Python Code Substitution," below,
+for more thorough examples of
+how this can be used.

 Lastly, a variable name

 .EE
 
+.SS Python Code Substitution
+
+Any python code within
+.BR "${" - "}"
+pairs gets evaluated by python 'eval', with the python globals set to
+the current environment's set of construction variables.
+So in the following case:
+.ES
+env['COND'] = 0
+env.Command('foo.out', 'foo.in',
+   '''echo ${COND==1 and 'FOO' or 'BAR'} > $TARGET''')
+.EE
+the command executed will be either
+.ES
+echo FOO > foo.out
+.EE
+or
+.ES
+echo BAR > foo.out
+.EE
+according to the current value of env['COND'] when the command is
+executed.  The evaluation occurs when the target is being
+built, not when the SConscript is being read.  So if env['COND'] is changed
+later in the SConscript, the final value will be used.
+
+Here's a more interesting example.  Note that all of COND, FOO, and
+BAR are environment variables, and their values are substituted into
+the final command.  FOO is a list, so its elements are interpolated
+separated by spaces.
+
+.ES
+env=Environment()
+env['COND'] = 0
+env['FOO'] = ['foo1', 'foo2']
+env['BAR'] = 'barbar'
+env.Command('foo.out', 'foo.in',
+    'echo ${COND==1 and FOO or BAR} > $TARGET')
+
+# Will execute this:
+#  echo foo1 foo2 > foo.out
+.EE
+
 SCons uses the following rules when converting construction variables into
 command lines:
 
 returns a tuple of directories
 that can be searched for files to be returned
 by this Scanner object.
+(Note that the
+.BR FindPathDirs ()
+function can be used to return a ready-made
+.B path_function
+for a given construction variable name,
+instead of having to write your own function from scratch.)

 .SS Defining Your Own Scanner Object
 
+The following example shows an extremely simple scanner (the
+.BR kfile_scan ()
+function)
+that doesn't use a search path at all
+and simply returns the
+file names present on any
+.B include
+lines in the scanned file.
+This would implicitly assume that all included
+files live in the top-level directory:
+
 .ES
 import re
 
 bar_in.target_scanner = kscan
 .EE
 
+Here is a similar but more complete example that searches
+a path of directories
+(specified as the
+.B MYPATH
+construction variable)
+for files that actually exist:
+
+.ES
+include_re = re.compile(r'^include\\s+(\\S+)$', re.M)
+
+def my_scan(node, env, path, arg):
+   contents = node.get_contents()
+   includes = include_re.findall(contents)
+   if includes == []:
+        return []
+    results = []
+    for inc in includes:
+        for dir in path:
+            file = dir + os.sep + inc
+            if os.path.exists(file):  
+                results.append(file)
+                break
+    return results
+
+scanner = Scanner(name = 'myscanner',
+                 function = my_scan,
+                 argument = None,
+                 skeys = ['.x'],
+                 path_function = FindPathDirs('MYPATH'),
+                 )
+scanners = Environment().Dictionary('SCANNERS')
+env = Environment(SCANNERS = scanners + [scanner])
+.EE
+
+The
+.BR FindPathDirs ()
+function used in the previous example returns a function
+(actually a callable Python object)
+that will return a list of directories
+specified in the
+.B $MYPATH
+construction variable.
+If you need to customize how the search path is derived,
+you would provide your own
+.B path_function
+argument when creating the Scanner object,
+as follows:
+
+.ES
+# MYPATH is a list of directories to search for files in
+def pf(env, dir, target, source, arg):
+    top_dir = Dir('#').abspath
+    results = []
+    if env.has_key('MYPATH'):
+        for p in env['MYPATH']:
+            results.append(top_dir + os.sep + p)
+    return results
+
+scanner = Scanner(name = 'myscanner',
+                 function = my_scan,
+                 argument = None,
+                 skeys = ['.x'],
+                 path_function = pf,
+                 )
+.EE

+SCons compatibility package for old Python versions
+
+This subpackage holds modules that provide backwards-compatible
+implementations of various things that we'd like to use in SCons but which
+only show up in later versions of Python than the early, old version(s)
+we still support.
+
+This package will be imported by other code:
+
+    import SCons.compat
+
+But other code will not generally reference things in this package through
+the SCons.compat namespace.  The modules included here add things to
+the __builtin__ namespace or the global module list so that the rest
+of our code can use the objects and names imported here regardless of
+Python version.
+
+Simply enough, things that go in the __builtin__ name space come from
+our builtins module.
+
+The rest of the things here will be in individual compatibility modules
+that are either: 1) suitably modified copies of the future modules that
+we want to use; or 2) backwards compatible re-implementations of the
+specific portions of a future module's API that we want to use.
+
+GENERAL WARNINGS:  Implementations of functions in the SCons.compat
+modules are *NOT* guaranteed to be fully compliant with these functions in
+later versions of Python.  We are only concerned with adding functionality
+that we actually use in SCons, so be wary if you lift this code for
+other uses.  (That said, making these more nearly the same as later,
+official versions is still a desirable goal, we just don't need to be
+obsessive about it.)
+
+We name the compatibility modules with an initial underscore (for
+example, _subprocess.py is our compatibility module for subprocess)
+so that we can still try to import the real module name and fall back
+to our compatibility module if we get an ImportError.  The import_as()
+function defined below loads the module as the "real" name (without the
+underscore), after which all of the "import {module}" statements in the
+rest of our code will find our pre-loaded compatibility module.

+r"""subprocess - Subprocesses with accessible I/O streams
+
+This module allows you to spawn processes, connect to their
+input/output/error pipes, and obtain their return codes.  This module
+intends to replace several other, older modules and functions, like:
+
+os.system
+os.spawn*
+os.popen*
+popen2.*
+commands.*
+
+Information about how the subprocess module can be used to replace these
+modules and functions can be found below.
+
+
+
+Using the subprocess module
+===========================
+This module defines one class called Popen:
+
+class Popen(args, bufsize=0, executable=None,
+            stdin=None, stdout=None, stderr=None,
+            preexec_fn=None, close_fds=False, shell=False,
+            cwd=None, env=None, universal_newlines=False,
+            startupinfo=None, creationflags=0):
+
+
+Arguments are:
+
+args should be a string, or a sequence of program arguments.  The
+program to execute is normally the first item in the args sequence or
+string, but can be explicitly set by using the executable argument.
+
+On UNIX, with shell=False (default): In this case, the Popen class
+uses os.execvp() to execute the child program.  args should normally
+be a sequence.  A string will be treated as a sequence with the string
+as the only item (the program to execute).
+
+On UNIX, with shell=True: If args is a string, it specifies the
+command string to execute through the shell.  If args is a sequence,
+the first item specifies the command string, and any additional items
+will be treated as additional shell arguments.
+
+On Windows: the Popen class uses CreateProcess() to execute the child
+program, which operates on strings.  If args is a sequence, it will be
+converted to a string using the list2cmdline method.  Please note that
+not all MS Windows applications interpret the command line the same
+way: The list2cmdline is designed for applications using the same
+rules as the MS C runtime.
+
+bufsize, if given, has the same meaning as the corresponding argument
+to the built-in open() function: 0 means unbuffered, 1 means line
+buffered, any other positive value means use a buffer of
+(approximately) that size.  A negative bufsize means to use the system
+default, which usually means fully buffered.  The default value for
+bufsize is 0 (unbuffered).
+
+stdin, stdout and stderr specify the executed programs' standard
+input, standard output and standard error file handles, respectively.
+Valid values are PIPE, an existing file descriptor (a positive
+integer), an existing file object, and None.  PIPE indicates that a
+new pipe to the child should be created.  With None, no redirection
+will occur; the child's file handles will be inherited from the
+parent.  Additionally, stderr can be STDOUT, which indicates that the
+stderr data from the applications should be captured into the same
+file handle as for stdout.
+
+If preexec_fn is set to a callable object, this object will be called
+in the child process just before the child is executed.
+
+If close_fds is true, all file descriptors except 0, 1 and 2 will be
+closed before the child process is executed.
+
+if shell is true, the specified command will be executed through the
+shell.
+
+If cwd is not None, the current directory will be changed to cwd
+before the child is executed.
+
+If env is not None, it defines the environment variables for the new
+process.
+
+If universal_newlines is true, the file objects stdout and stderr are
+opened as a text files, but lines may be terminated by any of '\n',
+the Unix end-of-line convention, '\r', the Macintosh convention or
+'\r\n', the Windows convention.  All of these external representations
+are seen as '\n' by the Python program.  Note: This feature is only
+available if Python is built with universal newline support (the
+default).  Also, the newlines attribute of the file objects stdout,
+stdin and stderr are not updated by the communicate() method.
+
+The startupinfo and creationflags, if given, will be passed to the
+underlying CreateProcess() function.  They can specify things such as
+appearance of the main window and priority for the new process.
+(Windows only)
+
+
+This module also defines two shortcut functions:
+
+call(*popenargs, **kwargs):
+    Run command with arguments.  Wait for command to complete, then
+    return the returncode attribute.
+
+    The arguments are the same as for the Popen constructor.  Example:
+
+    retcode = call(["ls", "-l"])
+
+check_call(*popenargs, **kwargs):
+    Run command with arguments.  Wait for command to complete.  If the
+    exit code was zero then return, otherwise raise
+    CalledProcessError.  The CalledProcessError object will have the
+    return code in the returncode attribute.
+
+    The arguments are the same as for the Popen constructor.  Example:
+
+    check_call(["ls", "-l"])
+
+Exceptions
+----------
+Exceptions raised in the child process, before the new program has
+started to execute, will be re-raised in the parent.  Additionally,
+the exception object will have one extra attribute called
+'child_traceback', which is a string containing traceback information
+from the childs point of view.
+
+The most common exception raised is OSError.  This occurs, for
+example, when trying to execute a non-existent file.  Applications
+should prepare for OSErrors.
+
+A ValueError will be raised if Popen is called with invalid arguments.
+
+check_call() will raise CalledProcessError, if the called process
+returns a non-zero return code.
+
+
+Security
+--------
+Unlike some other popen functions, this implementation will never call
+/bin/sh implicitly.  This means that all characters, including shell
+metacharacters, can safely be passed to child processes.
+
+
+Popen objects
+=============
+Instances of the Popen class have the following methods:
+
+poll()
+    Check if child process has terminated.  Returns returncode
+    attribute.
+
+wait()
+    Wait for child process to terminate.  Returns returncode attribute.
+
+communicate(input=None)
+    Interact with process: Send data to stdin.  Read data from stdout
+    and stderr, until end-of-file is reached.  Wait for process to
+    terminate.  The optional stdin argument should be a string to be
+    sent to the child process, or None, if no data should be sent to
+    the child.
+
+    communicate() returns a tuple (stdout, stderr).
+
+    Note: The data read is buffered in memory, so do not use this
+    method if the data size is large or unlimited.
+
+The following attributes are also available:
+
+stdin
+    If the stdin argument is PIPE, this attribute is a file object
+    that provides input to the child process.  Otherwise, it is None.
+
+stdout
+    If the stdout argument is PIPE, this attribute is a file object
+    that provides output from the child process.  Otherwise, it is
+    None.
+
+stderr
+    If the stderr argument is PIPE, this attribute is file object that
+    provides error output from the child process.  Otherwise, it is
+    None.
+
+pid
+    The process ID of the child process.
+
+returncode
+    The child return code.  A None value indicates that the process
+    hasn't terminated yet.  A negative value -N indicates that the
+    child was terminated by signal N (UNIX only).
+
+
+Replacing older functions with the subprocess module
+====================================================
+In this section, "a ==> b" means that b can be used as a replacement
+for a.
+
+Note: All functions in this section fail (more or less) silently if
+the executed program cannot be found; this module raises an OSError
+exception.
+
+In the following examples, we assume that the subprocess module is
+imported with "from subprocess import *".
+
+
+Replacing /bin/sh shell backquote
+---------------------------------
+output=`mycmd myarg`
+==>
+output = Popen(["mycmd", "myarg"], stdout=PIPE).communicate()[0]
+
+
+Replacing shell pipe line
+-------------------------
+output=`dmesg | grep hda`
+==>
+p1 = Popen(["dmesg"], stdout=PIPE)
+p2 = Popen(["grep", "hda"], stdin=p1.stdout, stdout=PIPE)
+output = p2.communicate()[0]
+
+
+Replacing os.system()
+---------------------
+sts = os.system("mycmd" + " myarg")
+==>
+p = Popen("mycmd" + " myarg", shell=True)
+pid, sts = os.waitpid(p.pid, 0)
+
+Note:
+
+* Calling the program through the shell is usually not required.
+
+* It's easier to look at the returncode attribute than the
+  exitstatus.
+
+A more real-world example would look like this:
+
+try:
+    retcode = call("mycmd" + " myarg", shell=True)
+    if retcode < 0:
+        print >>sys.stderr, "Child was terminated by signal", -retcode
+    else:
+        print >>sys.stderr, "Child returned", retcode
+except OSError, e:
+    print >>sys.stderr, "Execution failed:", e
+
+
+Replacing os.spawn*
+-------------------
+P_NOWAIT example:
+
+pid = os.spawnlp(os.P_NOWAIT, "/bin/mycmd", "mycmd", "myarg")
+==>
+pid = Popen(["/bin/mycmd", "myarg"]).pid
+
+
+P_WAIT example:
+
+retcode = os.spawnlp(os.P_WAIT, "/bin/mycmd", "mycmd", "myarg")
+==>
+retcode = call(["/bin/mycmd", "myarg"])
+
+
+Vector example:
+
+os.spawnvp(os.P_NOWAIT, path, args)
+==>
+Popen([path] + args[1:])
+
+
+Environment example:
+
+os.spawnlpe(os.P_NOWAIT, "/bin/mycmd", "mycmd", "myarg", env)
+==>
+Popen(["/bin/mycmd", "myarg"], env={"PATH": "/usr/bin"})
+
+
+Replacing os.popen*
+-------------------
+pipe = os.popen(cmd, mode='r', bufsize)
+==>
+pipe = Popen(cmd, shell=True, bufsize=bufsize, stdout=PIPE).stdout
+
+pipe = os.popen(cmd, mode='w', bufsize)
+==>
+pipe = Popen(cmd, shell=True, bufsize=bufsize, stdin=PIPE).stdin
+
+
+(child_stdin, child_stdout) = os.popen2(cmd, mode, bufsize)
+==>
+p = Popen(cmd, shell=True, bufsize=bufsize,
+          stdin=PIPE, stdout=PIPE, close_fds=True)
+(child_stdin, child_stdout) = (p.stdin, p.stdout)
+
+
+(child_stdin,
+ child_stdout,
+ child_stderr) = os.popen3(cmd, mode, bufsize)
+==>
+p = Popen(cmd, shell=True, bufsize=bufsize,
+          stdin=PIPE, stdout=PIPE, stderr=PIPE, close_fds=True)
+(child_stdin,
+ child_stdout,
+ child_stderr) = (p.stdin, p.stdout, p.stderr)
+
+
+(child_stdin, child_stdout_and_stderr) = os.popen4(cmd, mode, bufsize)
+==>
+p = Popen(cmd, shell=True, bufsize=bufsize,
+          stdin=PIPE, stdout=PIPE, stderr=STDOUT, close_fds=True)
+(child_stdin, child_stdout_and_stderr) = (p.stdin, p.stdout)
+
+
+Replacing popen2.*
+------------------
+Note: If the cmd argument to popen2 functions is a string, the command
+is executed through /bin/sh.  If it is a list, the command is directly
+executed.
+
+(child_stdout, child_stdin) = popen2.popen2("somestring", bufsize, mode)
+==>
+p = Popen(["somestring"], shell=True, bufsize=bufsize
+          stdin=PIPE, stdout=PIPE, close_fds=True)
+(child_stdout, child_stdin) = (p.stdout, p.stdin)
+
+
+(child_stdout, child_stdin) = popen2.popen2(["mycmd", "myarg"], bufsize, mode)
+==>
+p = Popen(["mycmd", "myarg"], bufsize=bufsize,
+          stdin=PIPE, stdout=PIPE, close_fds=True)
+(child_stdout, child_stdin) = (p.stdout, p.stdin)
+
+The popen2.Popen3 and popen3.Popen4 basically works as subprocess.Popen,
+except that:
+
+* subprocess.Popen raises an exception if the execution fails
+* the capturestderr argument is replaced with the stderr argument.
+* stdin=PIPE and stdout=PIPE must be specified.
+* popen2 closes all filedescriptors by default, but you have to specify
+  close_fds=True with subprocess.Popen.
