Description: A replacement for Make
 SCons is an Open Source software construction tool--that is, a build
 tool; an improved substitute for the classic Make utility; a better
 way to build software.  SCons is based on the design which won the
 Software Carpentry build tool design competition in August 2000.  SCons
 "configuration files" are Python scripts that call an API to establish
 dependencies and specify how targets are built.  SCons maintains a global
 view of all dependencies in a tree, and can scan source (or other) files
 for implicit dependencies, such as files specified on #include lines.
 SCons uses MD5 signatures to rebuild only when the contents of a file
 have really changed, not just when the timestamp has been touched.
 SCons supports side-by-side variant builds, and is easily extended with
 user-defined Builder and/or Scanner objects.
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
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.
