Bam is a build system with the focus on being having fast build times and flexiable build scripts. Instead of having a custom language it uses Lua to describe the build steps. It's written in clean C and is distrubuted under the liberal zlib licence. Available on many platforms including but not limited to Linux, Mac OS X and Windows.
This section is a short introduction to bam and is designed to get you started quickly.
1: settings = NewSettings() 2: settings.cc.defines:Add("MYDEFINE") 3: source = Collect("src/*.c") 5: objects = Compile(settings, source) 4: exe = Link(settings, "my_app", objects)
Line 1 creates a new settings object. This contains all the settings on how to compile, link etc.
Line 2 sets a define to be used during compliation.
Line 3 gathers all the files under the src/ directory which has .c as extention. Collect returns a table of strings which are the files.
Line 4 compiles the source using the specified settings and returns a table of the object files.
Line 5 links the object files to an executable named "my_app", using the specified settings.
