SCons description
SCons is an Open Source software construction tool-that is, a next-generation build tool.

Think of SCons as an improved, cross-platform substitute for the classic Make utility with integrated functionality similar to autoconf/automake and compiler caches such as ccache.

In short, SCons is an easier, more reliable and faster way to build software.

Here are some key features of "SCons":

· Configuration files are Python scripts--use the power of a real programming language to solve build problems.
· Reliable, automatic dependency analysis built-in for C, C and Fortran--no more "make depend" or "make clean" to get all of the dependencies. Dependency analysis is easily extensible through user-defined dependency Scanners for other languages or file types.
· Built-in support for C, C , D, Java, Fortran, Yacc, Lex, Qt and SWIG, and building TeX and LaTeX documents. Easily extensible through user-defined Builders for other languages or file types.
· Building from central repositories of source code and/or pre-built targets.
· Built-in support for fetching source files from SCCS, RCS, CVS, BitKeeper and Perforce.
· Built-in support for Microsoft Visual Studio .NET and past Visual Studio versions, including generation of .dsp, .dsw, .sln and .vcproj files.
· Reliable detection of build changes using MD5 signatures; optional, configurable support for traditional timestamps.
· Improved support for parallel builds--like make -j but keeps N jobs running simultaneously regardless of directory hierarchy.
· Integrated Autoconf-like support for finding #include files, libraries, functions and typedefs.
· Global view of all dependencies--no more multiple build passes or reordering targets to build everything.
· Ability to share built files in a cache to speed up multiple builds--like ccache but for any type of target file, not just C/C compilation.
· Designed from the ground up for cross-platform builds, and known to work on Linux, other POSIX systems (including AIX, *BSD systems, HP/UX, IRIX and Solaris), Windows NT, Mac OS X, and OS/2..
