<scons_function name="FindPathDirs">
<arguments signature="global">
(variable)
</arguments>
<summary>
<para>
Returns a function
(actually a callable Python object)
intended to be used as the
<varname>path_function</varname>
of a Scanner object.
The returned object will look up the specified
<varname>variable</varname>
in a construction environment
and treat the construction variable's value as a list of
directory paths that should be searched
(like
&cv-link-CPPPATH;,
&cv-link-LIBPATH;,
etc.).
</para>

<para>
Note that use of
&f-FindPathDirs;
is generally preferable to
writing your own
<varname>path_function</varname>
for the following reasons:
1) The returned list will contain all appropriate directories
found in source trees
(when
&f-link-VariantDir;
is used)
or in code repositories
(when
&f-Repository;
or the
<option>-Y</option>
option are used).
2) scons will identify expansions of
<varname>variable</varname>
that evaluate to the same list of directories as,
in fact, the same list,
and avoid re-scanning the directories for files,
when possible.
</para>

<para>
Example:
</para>

<example_commands>
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'))
</example_commands>
</summary>
</scons_function>

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.
