in reply to pp only to create executable when source has changed

Adding more information to the succinct comment by hippo, I would have thought that all your projects would use Makefiles to be built in any event, so why not simply add a rule to build the .exe file using pp whenever the parent source file has changed?

A Monk aims to give answers to those who have none, and to learn from those who know more.

[james28909]: @choroba yes they do but for some reasom when i try to pipe the output of youtube-dl to ffmpeg, it fails. hence the work around lol
[RonW]: james28909: Interesting trick
[choroba]: The theme is "High-end Perl", so both my talks are antitheses: "Low-end Perl" and "How to almost win a T-shirt in a programming contest"
[RonW]: I wonder if that's a CMD.exe limitation or a Windows limitation
[james28909]: what i am trying to accomplish is piping the output of ffmpeg to yet another encryption routine using libsodium. and hopefully once that is done i will be able to forward the packets to discord servers
[RonW]: choroba: Please define "high end" and "low end"
[LanX]: choroba: subversive (as usual ;)
[james28909]: i dunno, if i didnt have so little experience in linux i would swap. but it would be to much of a learning curve for me right now.
[choroba]: Low-end is defined as the Perl that generates millions of income
[choroba]: sorry, that's high-end, of coursse
