Subject Re: COBOL compile task?
Date Sun, 18 Aug 2002 20:25:25 GMT
The cc task in the ant-contrib project at SourceForge
(, module cpptasks in the CVS) is designed
to support multiple languages with traditional compile/link cycles.  It
current has compiler adapters for C++, FORTRAN, MIDL, Windows Resource et al
and will do all your dependency checking.  All that is needed for a new
language is a minimal parser that can identify file dependencies (like
finding #include's for C++) and an adapter that builds the command line.
