Software-build tool, replacement for make
Perforce's Jam (formerly called Jam/MR) is a powerful and highly
customizable utility to build programs and other things, that can run
on Un*x, Nt, VMS, OS/2 and Macintosh MPW, using portable Jamfiles.
It can build large projects spread across many directories in one
pass, and can run jobs in parallel where make would not.
.
It takes some time to fully apprehend, especially when one's already
accustomed to make(1), but there's no comparison in power when
comparing these two tools.
.
Standard rules:
- can automatically extract header dependencies for C/C++ (you can
customize for you own language)
- provide for automatic "clean", "install", "uninstall" rules,
so that an automake-like tool is not needed
