Synopsis

Description

Calls bakefile with flags listed in description file (Bakefiles.bkgen or file specified using the --desc option).

Command Line Options

--desc=DESCFILE

Uses given description file instead of Bakefiles.bkgen.

--formats=FORMATS

Calls Bakefile to generate only makefiles for specified formats. FORMATS is comma-separed list of format names. Formats not included in the list are ignored even if they are listed in <add-formats> tags in the description file.

--bakefiles=BAKEFILES

Calls Bakefile to generate makefiles only from bakefiles that match any wildcard in comma-separed list of wildcards in BAKEFILES. Input files specified using the <input> tag in the description file that don't match any of the wildcards are not processed.

-DVAR=VALUE

Pass variable definition to Bakefile, overriding any definition in description file or the input bakefile.

-IPATH

Add path to the list of directories where Bakefile looks for rules and output templates.

-c, --clean

Removes all output files instead of generating them.

--list-files

-j, --jobs

Number of jobs to run simultaneously. Default is the number of CPUs.

-p, --pretend

Don't do anything, only display actions that would be performed.

--dry-run

Process the bakefile normally, but instead of creating or modifying files, just print which files would be changed without actually modifying them.

-k, --keep-going

Do not stop when a target fails.

-B, --always-make

Pretend that all makefiles are out of date and regenerate all of them. -f and -b options are respected.

-V, --very-verbose

Display even more detailed information.
