Header only library for writing build recipes in C.
The idea is that you should not need anything but a C compiler to build a C project. No make, no cmake, no shell, no cmd, no PowerShell etc. Only C compiler. So with the C compiler you bootstrap your build system and then you use the build system to build everything else.
Try it out right here:
$ cc ./nobuild.c -o nobuild $ ./nobuild
How to use the library in your own project
Keep in mind that nobuild.h is an stb-style header-only library. That means that just including it does not include the implementations of the functions. You have to define
NOBUILD_IMPLEMENTATION macro before the include. See our nobuild.c for an example.
- Copy nobuild.h to your project
nobuild.cin your project with the build recipe. See our nobuild.c for an example.
- Bootstrap the
$ cc nobuild.c -o nobuildon POSIX systems
$ cl.exe nobuild.con Windows with MSVC
- Run the build:
- Functions from nobuild.h that start with
nobuild__(double underscore) are private to the library and should not be relied upon. They can be changed in any release without a warning.
