in thread Where should (or could) a distribution override HARNESS_OPTIONS?

Inline::CPP generates within an _Inline directory a new subdirectory for each build's files.

What is a "build" in this context? I.e. do we have one subdirectory per invokation of a test script, one subdirectory per test script, or one per Inline::CPP version? How are the names of the subdirectories calculated (what are the input parameters for the function that returns the subdirectory name)?

Idea behind the last question: two test scripts, both use a common module that uses Inline:CPP, subdirectory name depends only on that module. Two gccs fight in the same subdirectory.

(I should really install some Inline::* modules. But it's 6:30 am and it will be a long day at $work. No time for fun ...)


Today I will gladly share my knowledge and experience, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so". ;-)

    "build" refers to Inline creating a module in _Inline (like h2xs) and making it at use/BEGIN time (perl Makefile.PL/make install), before your program runs, ex

    subsequent runs don't "build"

    unless the c-source changes

    The resulting directory structure

    The _Inline/build directory usually gets cleaned up, but not for also NAME's the module, so its name doesn't change, but doesn't NAME the module, so a name is derived from the filename ( and the md5 sum of the c-source code

    $ cat _Inline\lib\auto\def_pl_4ff5\def_pl_4ff5.inl md5 : 4ff5a29496365b6167324b7d80efb321 name : def_pl_4ff5 version : "" language : C language_id : C installed : 0 date_compiled : Thu Nov 22 21:58:12 2012 inline_version : 0.5 ILSM : % module : Inline::C suffix : dll type : compiled Config : % apiversion : ? archname : MSWin32-x86-multi-thread cc : gcc ccflags : " -s -O2 -DWIN32 -DPERL_TEXTMODE_SCRIPTS -DPERL_IMPLICI +T_CONTEXT -DPERL_IMPLICIT_SYS -fno-strict-aliasing -mms-bitfields" ld : g++ osname : MSWin32 osvers : 5.1 so : dll version : 5.14.1

    Now, can two copies of run simultaneously? Lets see

    First cleanup  $ rm -rfv _Inline

    And one copy will trip over the other and die , the other will continue normally

    Now I'm not sure what scenario davido is talking about in the OP, but I hope this helps
