redo - a recursive build system
Smaller, easier, more powerful, and more reliable than
This is an implementation of Daniel J. Bernstein's redo build system. He never released his version, so other people have implemented different variants based on his published specification.
This version, sometimes called apenwarr/redo, is probably the most advanced one, including parallel builds, improved logging, extensive automated tests, and helpful debugging features.
To build and test redo, run:
./do -j10 test
To install it, run something like this:
DESTDIR= PREFIX=/usr/local ./do -j10 install
