Re: sdlBasic - makefile needed


thanks a lot about your feedback - i sent you a mail directly from another mail account, because i have some difficulties on using this mailing list with a webmail service, even knowing gmail is maybe one of the best available for these things...

as well i forwarded Vroby (sdlBasic maintainer) this feedback

as told there, any help on a makefile for sdlBasic, as well helping on .deb packaging it officially at Debian or Ubuntu would be very welcome and needed - thanks a lot your feedback again! :-))))))))

greetings and thanks again!

Even though it's more elegant, I don't think there's any norm saying that the
building system should depend on makefiles. In fact there are a lot of
packages  that don't. Having said this, anyway, I guess that GNU Make is quite
a nice building system.

It seems that sdlBasic goes towards some quick n dirty building system based
in shell scripts, which in turn end up calling some makefiles:

cd sdlBasic
cd ..
cd sdlBrt
make os=linux
cd ..
cd sdlBrt/SDLengine
make os=linux
cd ../..
cd sdlBrt/BASengine
make os=linux
cd ../..
cd sdlBrt/unzip
make os=linux
cd ../..

cd scintilla/gtk
cd ../../gtk
cd ../

I guess that a global makefile doing something like the follofing commands
would do:

$(MAKE) -C sdlBasic/scintilla/gtk
$(MAKE) -C sdlBasic/gtk
$(MAKE) -C sdlBrt os=linux
$(MAKE) -C sdlBrt/SDLengine os=linux
$(MAKE) -C sdlBrt/BASengine os=linux
$(MAKE) -C sdlBrt/unzip os=linux

Of course, the whole building system is kind of a mess, is upstreaming willing
to change it?
