#goscons

goscons is a set of SCons tools for building Go code.

goscons supports Cgo.

goscons includes a helper application based on the one from sconsgo,
which can be found at:

https://launchpad.net/sconsgo


##Installation

To get started, do the following:

1. Set GOROOT in your environment to point to your Go distribution.

2. Add $GOROOT/bin to your PATH.

3. On Mac OS X, it is also necessary to set GOARCH.

4. Run scons to install goscons-helper to $GOROOT/bin.

5. Run ./test.sh to do some tests.

6. Set PYTHONPATH in your environment to point to the top-level
goscons directory.

7. Look in test.sh and the prj[12345] directories for some examples.

If PYTHONPATH is set, the following SConstruct should work to build a
simple Go project:

from goscons import GoEnvironment
env = GoEnvironment()
env.GoPackages('src/pkg')
env.GoCommands('src/cmd')


##gccgo

Work was started on support for gccgo, but the compiler is missing
some features that are needed to support dependency resolution and
automatic construction of the link commands.

##Bugs

Please report bugs to Albert Strasheim <fullung@gmail.com>.


##About the tests

The tests assume you have the 386 tools available, so if you are on
amd64, go to $GOROOT/src and run:

    GOARCH=386 ./make.bash

You might need to install 32-bit versions of packages like glibc-devel
for this to work, so try something like:

    yum install libgcc.i686 glibc-devel.i686 libuuid-devel.i686
