      This paper has introduced &SCons;, a next-generation build tool
      with a modular, embeddable architecture and a direct Python
      interface. &SCons; has a global view of the dependencies in a source
      tree, uses MD5 signatures to decide if derived files are out of date,
      and automatically scans files for dependencies, all of which make &SCons;
      builds exceptionally reliable. The &SCons; development methodology has
      been described, notable for its emphasis on automated regression
      testing to ensure a robust and reliable tool from day one. Several
      future directions for &SCons; have also been discussed.

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.
