Bug#182820: ITP: makepp -- yet another make replacement

Package: wnpp
Version: N/A; reported 2003-02-27
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : makepp
  Version         : 1.18
  Upstream Author : Gary Holt <holt@lnc.usc.edu>
* URL             : http://makepp.sourceforge.net/
* License         : Dual GPL/Artistic
  Description     : yet another make replacement

makepp is the rare case where a compromise worked well.  Namely, a compromise
between the power of cons (already in Debian) and the need to keep close to
traditional makefile syntax.  makepp has most of cons' power while it is
so compatible with existing makefiles that it can use many of them without
modification, perhaps in degraded mode.  Like cons, makepp is written in
Perl and depends on it.
