SCons / EiffelStudio56Tool

The SCons wiki has moved to

SCons and EiffelStudio 5.6

This is a SCons tool for building EiffelStudio 5.6 projects. It's superseded by EiffelStudioTool, which builds current versions of EiffelStudio. It has been tested on Windows XP and 2003, and on Mac OS X 10.4.7.

Put the builder in a script called, in a directory that you reference with toolpath, as shown in the example below.

It requires Python 2.4 or above, because it uses the subprocess module which was new in Python 2.4.

It does not attempt to scan the Eiffel project's Ace configuration file to figure out dependencies. This means that, if you modify an Eiffel class, this tool will not know that it needs to rebuild the project. It should be fairly easy to writer a Scanner to do this, but I won't bother because EiffelStudio 5.7 has replaced Eiffel's venerable Ace files with a completely new XML-based ECF file format. So, after editing some classes, you need to run SCons with the -c option to clean the targets before doing a rebuild. Alternatively, you can explicitly build the list of dependencies yourself, using classes_in_cluster(), as in the following example.

Example Usage

# This example assumes that is in the same directory as the SConstruct.

import os
from Eiffel import classes_in_cluster
env = Environment(ENV = os.environ, tools = ['Eiffel'], toolpath = ['.'])

# Build a precompiled library for the Gobo clusters.
gobo = Alias('gobo', env.Eiffel('gobo/precomp', 'gobo.ace'))

# Build some applications that depend on the gobo precompiled library.
# Each application will be built under the same directory containing its Ace file.
# If finalizing, install them into "/InstallDir".
for name, ace, classes in [
        ['app1', 'app1/app1.ace', classes_in_cluster('app1')],
        ['app2', 'app2/app2.ace', classes_in_cluster('app2')]
        target = env.Eiffel(name, [ace, gobo] + classes)
        Alias(name, target)
        if len(target) > 2: Install('/InstallDir', target[2])

Tool-specific initialisation for EiffelStudio 5.6.
This probably also works with earlier versions of EiffelStudio.

        Also build target[2] (the finalised executable) if specified.

        2. source[0]: the Ace file. If target[1] is not given, this also gives the Eiffel project directory.
        3. Additional source items optionally specify other dependencies, e.g. a precompiled library.

        1. Result target[0]: the given project's .epr file, with a directory part.
        2. Result target[1]: the workbench executable target to be built ("driver" if precompiling).

        4. Result source[0]: the given Ace file.
