+.SH "NAME"
+scons \- a software construction tool
+.SH "SYNOPSIS"
+.HP \w'\fBscons\fR\ 'u
+\fBscons\fR [\fIoptions\fR...] [\fIname=val\fR...] [\fItargets\fR...]
+.SH "DESCRIPTION"
+.PP
+The
+\fBscons\fR
+utility builds software (or other files) by determining which component pieces must be rebuilt and executing the necessary commands to rebuild them\&.
+.PP
+By default,
+\fBscons\fR
+searches for a file named
+\fISConstruct\fR,
+\fISconstruct\fR,
+\fIsconstruct\fR,
+\fISConstruct\&.py\fR
+\fISconstruct\&.py\fR
+or
+\fIsconstruct\&.py\fR
+(in that order) in the current directory and reads its configuration from the first file found\&. An alternate file name may be specified via the
+\fB\-f\fR
+option\&.
+.PP
+The
+\fISConstruct\fR
+file can specify subsidiary configuration files using the
+\fBSConscript\fR() function\&. By convention, these subsidiary files are named
+\fISConscript\fR, although any name may be used\&. (Because of this naming convention, the term "SConscript files" is sometimes used to refer generically to all
+\fBscons\fR
+configuration files, regardless of actual file name\&.)
+.PP
+The configuration files specify the target files to be built, and (optionally) the rules to build those targets\&. Reasonable default rules exist for building common software components (executable programs, object files, libraries), so that for most software projects, only the target and input files need be specified\&.
+.PP
+Before reading the
+\fISConstruct\fR
+file,
+\fBscons\fR
+looks for a directory named
+\fIsite_scons\fR
+in various system directories (see below) and the directory containing the
+\fISConstruct\fR
+file; for each of those dirs which exists,
+\fIsite_scons\fR
+is prepended to sys\&.path, the file
+\fIsite_scons/site_init\&.py\fR, is evaluated if it exists, and the directory
+\fIsite_scons/site_tools\fR
+is prepended to the default toolpath if it exists\&. See the
+\fB\-\-no\-site\-dir\fR
+and
+\fB\-\-site\-dir\fR
+options for more details\&.
+.PP
+\fBscons\fR
+reads and executes the SConscript files as Python scripts, so you may use normal Python scripting capabilities (such as flow control, data manipulation, and imported Python libraries) to handle complicated build situations\&.
+\fBscons\fR, however, reads and executes all of the SConscript files
+\fIbefore\fR
+it begins building any targets\&. To make this obvious,
+\fBscons\fR
+prints the following messages about what it is doing:
+.sp
+.if n \{\
+.RS 4
+.\}
+.nf
+$ scons foo\&.out
+scons: Reading SConscript files \&.\&.\&.
+scons: done reading SConscript files\&.
+scons: Building targets \&.\&.\&.
+cp foo\&.in foo\&.out
+scons: done building targets\&.
+$
+.fi
+.if n \{\
+.RE
+.\}
+.PP
+The status messages (everything except the line that reads "cp foo\&.in foo\&.out") may be suppressed using the
+\fB\-Q\fR
+option\&.
+.PP
+\fBscons\fR
+does not automatically propagate the external environment used to execute
+\fBscons\fR
+to the commands used to build target files\&. This is so that builds will be guaranteed repeatable regardless of the environment variables set at the time
+\fBscons\fR
+is invoked\&. This also means that if the compiler or other commands that you want to use to build your target files are not in standard system locations,
+\fBscons\fR
+will not find them unless you explicitly set the
+\fBPATH\fR
+to include those locations\&. Whenever you create an
+\fBscons\fR
+construction environment, you can propagate the value of
+\fBPATH\fR
+from your external environment as follows:
+.sp
+.if n \{\
+.RS 4
+.\}
+.nf
+import os
+env = Environment(ENV = {\*(AqPATH\*(Aq : os\&.environ[\*(AqPATH\*(Aq]})
+.fi
+.if n \{\
+.RE
+.\}
+.PP
+Similarly, if the commands use external environment variables like
+\fBPATH\fR,
+\fBHOME\fR,
+\fBJAVA_HOME\fR,
+\fBLANG\fR,
+\fBSHELL\fR,
+\fBTERM\fR, etc\&., these variables can also be explicitly propagated:
+.sp
+.if n \{\
+.RS 4
+.\}
+.nf
+import os
+env = Environment(ENV = {\*(AqPATH\*(Aq: os\&.environ[\*(AqPATH\*(Aq],
+ \*(AqHOME\*(Aq: os\&.environ[\*(AqHOME\*(Aq]})
+.fi
+.if n \{\
+.RE
+.\}
+.PP
+Or you may explicitly propagate the invoking user\*(Aqs complete external environment:
+.sp
+.if n \{\
+.RS 4
+.\}
+.nf
+import os
+env = Environment(ENV = os\&.environ)
+.fi
+.if n \{\
+.RE
+.\}
+.PP
+This comes at the expense of making your build dependent on the user\*(Aqs environment being set correctly, but it may be more convenient for many configurations\&.
+.PP
+\fBscons\fR
+can scan known input files automatically for dependency information (for example, #include statements in C or C++ files) and will rebuild dependent files appropriately whenever any "included" input file changes\&.
+\fBscons\fR
+supports the ability to define new scanners for unknown input file types\&.
+.PP
+\fBscons\fR
+knows how to fetch files automatically from SCCS or RCS subdirectories using SCCS, RCS or BitKeeper\&.
+.PP
+\fBscons\fR
+is normally executed in a top\-level directory containing a
+\fISConstruct\fR
+file, optionally specifying as command\-line arguments the target file or files to be built\&.
+.PP
+By default, the command
+.sp
+.if n \{\
+.RS 4
+.\}
+.nf
+scons
+.fi
+.if n \{\
+.RE
+.\}
+.PP
+will build all target files in or below the current directory\&. Explicit default targets (to be built when no targets are specified on the command line) may be defined in the SConscript file(s) using the
+\fBDefault()\fR
+function, described below\&.
+.PP
+Even when
+\fBDefault()\fR
+targets are specified in the SConscript file(s), all target files in or below the current directory may be built by explicitly specifying the current directory (\&.) as a command\-line target:
+.sp
+.if n \{\
+.RS 4
+.\}
+.nf
+scons \&.
+.fi
+.if n \{\
+.RE
+.\}
+.PP
+Building all target files, including any files outside of the current directory, may be specified by supplying a command\-line target of the root directory (on POSIX systems):
+.sp
+.if n \{\
+.RS 4
+.\}
+.nf
+scons /
+.fi
+.if n \{\
+.RE
+.\}
+.PP
+or the path name(s) of the volume(s) in which all the targets should be built (on Windows systems):
+.sp
+.if n \{\
+.RS 4
+.\}
+.nf
+scons C:\e D:\e
+.fi
+.if n \{\
+.RE
+.\}
+.PP
+To build only specific targets, supply them as command\-line arguments:
+.sp
+.if n \{\
+.RS 4
+.\}
+.nf
+scons foo bar
+.fi
+.if n \{\
+.RE
+.\}
+.PP
+in which case only the specified targets will be built (along with any derived files on which they depend)\&.
+.PP
+Specifying "cleanup" targets in SConscript files is not usually necessary\&. The
+\fB\-c\fR
+flag removes all files necessary to build the specified target:
+.sp
+.if n \{\
+.RS 4
+.\}
+.nf
+scons \-c \&.
+.fi
+.if n \{\
+.RE
+.\}
+.PP
+to remove all target files, or:
+.sp
+.if n \{\
+.RS 4
+.\}
+.nf
+scons \-c build export
+.fi
+.if n \{\
+.RE
+.\}
+.PP
+to remove target files under build and export\&. Additional files or directories to remove can be specified using the
+\fBClean()\fR
+function\&. Conversely, targets that would normally be removed by the
+\fB\-c\fR
+invocation can be prevented from being removed by using the
+\fBNoClean\fR() function\&.
+.PP
+A subset of a hierarchical tree may be built by remaining at the top\-level directory (where the
+\fISConstruct\fR
+file lives) and specifying the subdirectory as the target to be built:
+.sp
+.if n \{\
+.RS 4
+.\}
+.nf
+scons src/subdir
+.fi
+.if n \{\
+.RE
+.\}
+.PP
+or by changing directory and invoking scons with the
+\fB\-u\fR
+option, which traverses up the directory hierarchy until it finds the
+\fISConstruct\fR
+file, and then builds targets relatively to the current subdirectory:
+.sp
+.if n \{\
+.RS 4
+.\}
+.nf
+cd src/subdir
+scons \-u \&.
+.fi
+.if n \{\
+.RE
+.\}
+.PP
+\fBscons\fR
+supports building multiple targets in parallel via a
+\fB\-j\fR
+option that takes, as its argument, the number of simultaneous tasks that may be spawned:
+.sp
+.if n \{\
+.RS 4
+.\}
+.nf
+scons \-j 4
+.fi
+.if n \{\
+.RE
+.\}
+.PP
+builds four targets in parallel, for example\&.
+.PP
+\fBscons\fR
+can maintain a cache of target (derived) files that can be shared between multiple builds\&. When caching is enabled in a SConscript file, any target files built by
+\fBscons\fR
+will be copied to the cache\&. If an up\-to\-date target file is found in the cache, it will be retrieved from the cache instead of being rebuilt locally\&. Caching behavior may be disabled and controlled in other ways by the
+\fB\-\-cache\-force\fR,
+\fB\-\-cache\-disable\fR,
+\fB\-\-cache\-readonly\fR, and
+\fB\-\-cache\-show\fR
+command\-line options\&. The
+\fB\-\-random\fR
+option is useful to prevent multiple builds from trying to update the cache simultaneously\&.
+.PP
+Values of variables to be passed to the SConscript file(s) may be specified on the command line:
+.sp
+.if n \{\
+.RS 4
+.\}
+.nf
+scons debug=1 \&.
+.fi
+.if n \{\
+.RE
+.\}
+.PP
+These variables are available in SConscript files through the ARGUMENTS dictionary, and can be used in the SConscript file(s) to modify the build in any way:
+.sp
+.if n \{\
+.RS 4
+.\}
+.nf
+if ARGUMENTS\&.get(\*(Aqdebug\*(Aq, 0):
+ env = Environment(CCFLAGS = \*(Aq\-g\*(Aq)
+else:
+ env = Environment()
+.fi
+.if n \{\
+.RE
+.\}
+.PP
+The command\-line variable arguments are also available in the ARGLIST list, indexed by their order on the command line\&. This allows you to process them in order rather than by name, if necessary\&. ARGLIST[0] returns a tuple containing (argname, argvalue)\&. A Python exception is thrown if you try to access a list member that does not exist\&.
+.PP
+\fBscons\fR
+requires either Python 2\&.7 or Python 3\&.5 or higher\&. There should be no other dependencies or requirements to run
+\fBscons\&.\fR
+.PP
+By default,
+\fBscons\fR
+knows how to search for available programming tools on various systems\&. On Windows systems,
+\fBscons\fR
+searches in order for the Microsoft Visual C++ tools, the MinGW tool chain, the Intel compiler tools, and the PharLap ETS compiler\&. On OS/2 systems,
+\fBscons\fR
+searches in order for the OS/2 compiler, the GCC tool chain, and the Microsoft Visual C++ tools, On SGI IRIX, IBM AIX, Hewlett Packard HP\-UX, and Sun Solaris systems,
+\fBscons\fR
+searches for the native compiler tools (MIPSpro, Visual Age, aCC, and Forte tools respectively) and the GCC tool chain\&. On all other platforms, including POSIX (Linux and UNIX) platforms,
+\fBscons\fR
+searches in order for the GCC tool chain, the Microsoft Visual C++ tools, and the Intel compiler tools\&. You may, of course, override these default values by appropriate configuration of Environment construction variables\&.
+.SH "OPTIONS"
+.PP
+In general,
+\fBscons\fR
+supports the same command\-line options as GNU
+\fBmake\fR, and many of those supported by
+\fBcons\fR\&.
+.PP
+\-b
+.RS 4
+Ignored for compatibility with non\-GNU versions of
+\fBmake\&.\fR
+.RE
+.PP
+\-c, \-\-clean, \-\-remove
+.RS 4
+Clean up by removing all target files for which a construction command is specified\&. Also remove any files or directories associated to the construction command using the
+\fBClean\fR() function\&. Will not remove any targets specified by the
+\fBNoClean\fR() function\&.
+.RE
+.PP
+\-\-cache\-debug=\fIfile\fR
+.RS 4
+Print debug information about the
+\fBCacheDir\fR() derived\-file caching to the specified
+\fIfile\fR\&. If
+\fIfile\fR
+is
+\fB\-\fR
+(a hyphen), the debug information are printed to the standard output\&. The printed messages describe what signature file names are being looked for in, retrieved from, or written to the
+\fBCacheDir\fR() directory tree\&.
+.RE
+.PP
+\-\-cache\-disable, \-\-no\-cache
+.RS 4
+Disable the derived\-file caching specified by
+\fBCacheDir\fR()\&.
+\fBscons\fR
+will neither retrieve files from the cache nor copy files to the cache\&.
+.RE
+.PP
+\-\-cache\-force, \-\-cache\-populate
+.RS 4
+When using
+\fBCacheDir\fR(), populate a cache by copying any already\-existing, up\-to\-date derived files to the cache, in addition to files built by this invocation\&. This is useful to populate a new cache with all the current derived files, or to add to the cache any derived files recently built with caching disabled via the
+\fB\-\-cache\-disable\fR
+option\&.
+.RE
+.PP
+\-\-cache\-readonly
+.RS 4
+Use the cache (if enabled) for reading, but do not not update the cache with changed files\&.
+.RE
+.PP
+\-\-cache\-show
+.RS 4
+When using
+\fBCacheDir\fR() and retrieving a derived file from the cache, show the command that would have been executed to build the file, instead of the usual report, "Retrieved `file\*(Aq from cache\&." This will produce consistent output for build logs, regardless of whether a target file was rebuilt or retrieved from the cache\&.
+.RE
+.PP
+\-\-config=\fImode\fR
+.RS 4
+This specifies how the
+\fBConfigure\fR
+call should use or generate the results of configuration tests\&. The option should be specified from among the following choices:
+.RE
+.PP
+\-\-config=auto
+.RS 4
+scons will use its normal dependency mechanisms to decide if a test must be rebuilt or not\&. This saves time by not running the same configuration tests every time you invoke scons, but will overlook changes in system header files or external commands (such as compilers) if you don\*(Aqt specify those dependecies explicitly\&. This is the default behavior\&.
+.RE
+.PP
+\-\-config=force
+.RS 4
+If this option is specified, all configuration tests will be re\-run regardless of whether the cached results are out of date\&. This can be used to explicitly force the configuration tests to be updated in response to an otherwise unconfigured change in a system header file or compiler\&.
+.RE
+.PP
+\-\-config=cache
+.RS 4
+If this option is specified, no configuration tests will be rerun and all results will be taken from cache\&. Note that scons will still consider it an error if \-\-config=cache is specified and a necessary test does not yet have any results in the cache\&.
+.RE
+.PP
+\-C\fI directory\fR, \-\-directory=\fIdirectory\fR
+.RS 4
+Change to the specified
+\fIdirectory\fR
+before searching for the
+\fISConstruct\fR,
+\fISconstruct\fR,
+\fIsconstruct\fR,
+\fISConstruct\&.py\fR
+\fISconstruct\&.py\fR
+or
+\fIsconstruct\&.py\fR
+file, or doing anything else\&. Multiple
+\fB\-C\fR
+options are interpreted relative to the previous one, and the right\-most
+\fB\-C\fR
+option wins\&. (This option is nearly equivalent to
+\fB\-f directory/SConstruct\fR, except that it will search for
+\fISConstruct\fR,
+\fISconstruct\fR,
+\fIsconstruct\fR,
+\fISConstruct\&.py\fR
+\fISconstruct\&.py\fR
+or
+\fIsconstruct\&.py\fR
+in the specified directory\&.)
+.RE
+.PP
+\-D
+.RS 4
+Works exactly the same way as the
+\fB\-u\fR

+.RE
+.PP
+\-\-debug=\fItype\fR[\fI,type\fR\&.\&.\&.]
+.RS 4
+Debug the build process\&.
+\fItype\fR
+specifies the kind of debugging info to emit\&. Multiple types may be specified, separated by commas\&. The following entries show the recognized types:
+.RE

+\fB\-O\fR
+(optimized) option or when the SCons modules have been compiled with optimization (that is, when executing from
+\fB*\&.pyo\fR
+files)\&.
+.RE
+.PP
+\-\-debug=duplicate
+.RS 4
+Print a line for each unlink/relink (or copy) of a variant file from its source file\&. Includes debugging info for unlinking stale variant files, as well as unlinking old targets before building them\&.
+.RE
+.PP
+\-\-debug=explain
+.RS 4
+Print an explanation of precisely why
+\fBscons\fR
+is deciding to (re\-)build any targets\&. (Note: this does not print anything for targets that are

+rebuilt\&.)
+.RE
+.PP
+\-\-debug=findlibs
+.RS 4
+Instruct the scanner that searches for libraries to print a message about each potential library name it is searching for, and about the actual libraries it finds\&.
+.RE
+.PP
+\-\-debug=includes
+.RS 4
+Print the include tree after each top\-level target is built\&. This is generally used to find out what files are included by the sources of a given derived file:

+\fBscons\fR
+prints this for each target it considers, even if that target is up to date (see also \-\-debug=explain)\&. This can help debug problems with targets that aren\*(Aqt being built; it shows whether
+\fBscons\fR

+.RE
+.PP
+\-\-debug=presub

+Tools in the toolpath are used before any of the built\-in ones\&. For example, adding

+.SS "Builder Methods"
+.PP
+You tell
+\fBscons\fR
+what to build by calling Builders, functions which know to take a particular action when given files of a particular type to produce a particular result type\&.
+\fBscons\fR
+defines a number of builders, and you can also write your own\&. Builders are attached to a
+construction environment
+as methods, and the available builder methods are listed as key\-value pairs in the
+\fBBUILDERS\fR
+attribute of the
+construction environment\&. The available builders can be displayed like this for debugging purposes:
+.sp
+.if n \{\
+.RS 4
+.\}
+.nf
+print("Builders:", list(env[\*(AqBUILDERS\*(Aq]))
+.fi
+.if n \{\
+.RE
+.\}
+.PP
+Builder methods always take two arguments:
+\fItarget\fR
+(a target or a list of targets to be built) and
+\fIsource\fR
+(a source or list of sources to be used as input when building), although in some circumstances, the target argument can actually be omitted (see below)\&. Builder methods also take a variety of keyword arguments, described below\&.
+.PP
+Because long lists of file names can lead to a lot of quoting,
+\fBscons\fR
+supplies a
+\fBSplit\fR
+global function and a same\-named environment method that split a single string into a list, separated on strings of white\-space characters\&. (These are similar to the Python string
+\fBsplit\fR
+method, but work even if the input isn\*(Aqt a string\&.)
+.PP
+The target and source arguments to a builder method can be specified either as positional arguments, in which case the target comes first, or as keyword arguments, using
+\fItarget=\fR
+and
+\fIsource=\fR\&. The following are equivalent examples of calling the
+\fBProgram\fR
+builder method:
+.sp

+.PP
+Python follows the POSIX pathname convention for path strings: if a string begins with the operating system pathname separator (on Windows both the slash and backslash separator work, and any leading drive specifier is ignored for the determination) it is considered an absolute path, otherwise it is a relative path\&. If the path string contains no separator characters, it is searched for as a file in the current directory\&. If it contains separator characters, the search follows down from the starting point, which is the top of the directory tree for an absolute path and the current directory for a relative path\&.
+.PP
+
+\fBscons\fR
+recognizes a third way to specify path strings: if the string begins with the
+\fB#\fR
+character it is top\-relative \- it works like a relative path but the search follows down from the directory containing the top\-level
+\fBSConstruct\fR
+rather than from the current directory (the # is allowed to be followed by a pathname separator, which is ignored if found in that position)\&. Top\-relative paths only work in places where
+scons
+will interpret the path (see some examples below)\&. To be used in other contexts the string will need to be converted to a relative or absolute path first\&.
+.PP
+Target and source pathnames can be absolute, relative, or top\-relative\&. Relative pathnames are searched considering the directory of the
+\fBSConscript\fR
+file currently being processed as the "current directory"\&.

+Note that because

+Usually, a construction environment method and global function with the same name both exist so that you don\*(Aqt have to remember whether to a specific bit of functionality must be called with or without a construction environment\&. In the following list, if you call something as a global function it looks like:
+.sp

+If you can call the functionality in both ways, then both forms are listed\&.

+.fi
+.if n \{\
+.RE
+.\}
+.PP
+Except where otherwise noted, the same\-named construction environment method and global function provide the exact same functionality\&. The only difference is that, where appropriate, calling the functionality through a construction environment will substitute construction variables into any supplied strings\&. For example:
+.sp
+.if n \{\

+.nf
+env = Environment(FOO = \*(Aqfoo\*(Aq)
+Default(\*(Aq$FOO\*(Aq)
+env\&.Default(\*(Aq$FOO\*(Aq)
+.fi
+.if n \{\

+.PP
+In the above example, the first call to the global
+\fBDefault()\fR
+function will actually add a target named
+\fB$FOO\fR
+to the list of default targets, while the second call to the

+\fBAutomatic moc file generation from header files\&.\fR
+You do not have to specify moc files explicitly, the tool does it for you\&. However, there are a few preconditions to do so: Your header file must have the same filebase as your implementation file and must stay in the same directory\&. It must have one of the suffixes \&.h, \&.hpp, \&.H, \&.hxx, \&.hh\&. You can turn off automatic moc file generation by setting QT_AUTOSCAN to 0\&. See also the corresponding
+\fBMoc\fR() builder method\&.
+.sp
+
+\fBAutomatic moc file generation from cxx files\&.\fR
+As stated in the qt documentation, include the moc file at the end of the cxx file\&. Note that you have to include the file, which is generated by the transformation ${QT_MOCCXXPREFIX}<basename>${QT_MOCCXXSUFFIX}, by default <basename>\&.moc\&. A warning is generated after building the moc file, if you do not include the correct file\&. If you are using VariantDir, you may need to specify duplicate=1\&. You can turn off automatic moc file generation by setting QT_AUTOSCAN to 0\&. See also the corresponding
+\fBMoc\fR
+builder method\&.
+.sp
+
+\fBAutomatic handling of \&.ui files\&.\fR
+The implementation files generated from \&.ui files are handled much the same as yacc or lex files\&. Each \&.ui file given as a source of Program, Library or SharedLibrary will generate three files, the declaration file, the implementation file and a moc file\&. Because there are also generated headers, you may need to specify duplicate=1 in calls to VariantDir\&. See also the corresponding

+\fIenv\fR

+\fIcustom_tests\fR

+\fIconf_dir\fR
+specifies a directory where the test cases are built\&. Note that this directory is not used for building normal targets\&. The default value is the directory #/\&.sconf_temp\&.
+\fIlog_file\fR
+specifies a file which collects the output from commands that are executed to check for the existence of header files, libraries, etc\&. The default is the file #/config\&.log\&. If you are using the
+\fBVariantDir\fR() method, you may want to specify a subdirectory under your variant directory\&.
+\fIconfig_h\fR
+specifies a C header file where the results of tests will be written, e\&.g\&. #define HAVE_STDIO_H, #define HAVE_LIBM, etc\&. The default is to not write a
+\fBconfig\&.h\fR
+file\&. You can specify the same
+\fBconfig\&.h\fR
+file in multiple calls to Configure, in which case
+\fBscons\fR
+will concatenate all results in the specified file\&. Note that SCons uses its normal dependency checking to decide if it\*(Aqs necessary to rebuild the specified
+\fIconfig_h\fR
+file\&. This means that the file is not necessarily re\-built each time scons is run, but is only rebuilt if its contents will have changed and some target that depends on the
+\fIconfig_h\fR
+file is being built\&.

+specifies a function that is passed the exit status (or return value) from the specified action and can return an arbitrary or modified value\&. This can be used, for example, to specify that an Action object\*(Aqs return value should be ignored under special conditions and SCons should, therefore, consider that the action always suceeds:
+.sp
+.if n \{\
+.RS 4
+.\}
+.nf
+def always_succeed(s):

+.fi
+.if n \{\
+.RE
+.\}
+.PP
+
+\fIbatch_key\fR
+specifies that the Action can create multiple target files by processing multiple independent source files simultaneously\&. (The canonical example is "batch compilation" of multiple object files by passing multiple source files to a single invocation of a compiler such as Microsoft\*(Aqs Visual C / C++ compiler\&.) If the
+\fBbatch_key\fR
+argument evaluates True and is not a callable object, the configured Action object will cause
+\fBscons\fR
+to collect all targets built with the Action object and configured with the same construction environment into single invocations of the Action object\*(Aqs command line or function\&. Command lines will typically want to use the
+\fBCHANGED_SOURCES\fR
+construction variable (and possibly
+\fBCHANGED_TARGETS\fR
+as well) to only pass to the command line those sources that have actually changed since their targets were built\&.
+.PP
+Example:
+.sp
+.if n \{\
+.RS 4
+.\}
+.nf
+a = Action(\*(Aqbuild $CHANGED_SOURCES\*(Aq, batch_key=True)
+.fi
+.if n \{\
+.RE
+.\}
+.PP
+The
+\fBbatch_key\fR
+argument may also be a callable function that returns a key that will be used to identify different "batches" of target files to be collected for batch building\&. A
+\fBbatch_key\fR
+function must accept the following arguments:
+.PP
+action
+.RS 4
+The action object\&.
+.RE
+.PP
+env
+.RS 4
+The construction environment configured for the target\&.
+.RE
+.PP
+target
+.RS 4
+The list of targets for a particular configured action\&.
+.RE
+.PP
+source
+.RS 4
+The list of source for a particular configured action\&.
+.sp
+The returned key should typically be a tuple of values derived from the arguments, using any appropriate logic to decide how multiple invocations should be batched\&. For example, a
+\fBbatch_key\fR
+function may decide to return the value of a specific construction variable from the
+\fBenv\fR
+argument which will cause
+\fBscons\fR
+to batch\-build targets with matching values of that variable, or perhaps return the
+\fBid\fR() of the entire construction environment, in which case
+\fBscons\fR
+will batch\-build all targets configured with the same construction environment\&. Returning
+\fBNone\fR
+indicates that the particular target should
+\fInot\fR
+be part of any batched build, but instead will be built by a separate invocation of action\*(Aqs command or function\&. Example:
+.sp
+.if n \{\
+.RS 4
+.\}
+.nf
+def batch_key(action, env, target, source):
+ tdir = target[0]\&.dir
+ if tdir\&.name == \*(Aqspecial\*(Aq:

+.SS "Miscellaneous Action Functions"
+.PP
+\fBscons\fR
+supplies a number of functions that arrange for various common file and directory manipulations to be performed\&. These are similar in concept to "tasks" in the Ant build tool, although the implementation is slightly different\&. These functions do not actually perform the specified action at the time the function is called, but instead return an Action object that can be executed at the appropriate time\&. (In Object\-Oriented terminology, these are actually Action
+\fIFactory\fR
+functions that return Action objects\&.)
+.PP
+In practice, there are two natural ways that these Action Functions are intended to be used\&.
+.PP

+.nf
+Execute(Touch(\*(Aqfile\*(Aq))
+.fi
+.if n \{\

+.SH "SYSTEM-SPECIFIC BEHAVIOR"
+.PP
+SCons and its configuration files are very portable, due largely to its implementation in Python\&. There are, however, a few portability issues waiting to trap the unwary\&.
+.SS "\&.C file suffix"
+.PP
+SCons handles the upper\-case
+\fB\&.C\fR
+file suffix differently, depending on the capabilities of the underlying system\&. On a case\-sensitive system such as Linux or UNIX, SCons treats a file with a
+\fB\&.C\fR
+suffix as a C++ source file\&. On a case\-insensitive system such as Windows, SCons treats a file with a
+\fB\&.C\fR
+suffix as a C source file\&.
+.SS "\&.F file suffix"
+.PP
+SCons handles the upper\-case
+\fB\&.F\fR
+file suffix differently, depending on the capabilities of the underlying system\&. On a case\-sensitive system such as Linux or UNIX, SCons treats a file with a
+\fB\&.F\fR
+suffix as a Fortran source file that is to be first run through the standard C preprocessor\&. On a case\-insensitive system such as Windows, SCons treats a file with a
+\fB\&.F\fR
+suffix as a Fortran source file that should
+\fInot\fR
+be run through the C preprocessor\&.
+.SS "Windows: Cygwin Tools and Cygwin Python vs\&. Windows Pythons"
+.PP
+Cygwin supplies a set of tools and utilities that let users work on a Windows system using a more POSIX\-like environment\&. The Cygwin tools, including Cygwin Python, do this, in part, by sharing an ability to interpret UNIX\-like path names\&. For example, the Cygwin tools will internally translate a Cygwin path name like
+/cygdrive/c/mydir
+to an equivalent Windows pathname of
+C:/mydir
+(equivalent to
+C:\emydir)\&.
+.PP
+Versions of Python that are built for native Windows execution, such as the python\&.org and ActiveState versions, do not have the Cygwin path name semantics\&. This means that using a native Windows version of Python to build compiled programs using Cygwin tools (such as
+\fBgcc\fR,
+\fBbison\fR, and
+\fBflex\fR) may yield unpredictable results\&. "Mixing and matching" in this way can be made to work, but it requires careful attention to the use of path names in your SConscript files\&.
+.PP
+In practice, users can sidestep the issue by adopting the following rules: When using gcc, use the Cygwin\-supplied Python interpreter to run SCons; when using Microsoft Visual C/C++ (or some other Windows compiler) use the python\&.org or ActiveState version of Python to run SCons\&.
+.SS "Windows: scons\&.bat file"
+.PP
+On Windows systems, SCons is executed via a wrapper
+\fBscons\&.bat\fR
+file\&. This has (at least) two ramifications:
+.PP
+First, Windows command\-line users that want to use variable assignment on the command line may have to put double quotes around the assignments:
+.sp
+.if n \{\
+.RS 4
+.\}
+.nf
+scons "FOO=BAR" "BAZ=BLEH"
+.fi
+.if n \{\
+.RE
+.\}
+.PP
+Second, the Cygwin shell does not recognize this file as being the same as an
+\fBscons\fR
+command issued at the command\-line prompt\&. You can work around this either by executing
+\fBscons\&.bat\fR
+from the Cygwin command line, or by creating a wrapper shell script named
+\fBscons \&.\fR
+.SS "MinGW"
+.PP
+The MinGW bin directory must be in your PATH environment variable or the PATH variable under the ENV construction variable for SCons to detect and use the MinGW tools\&. When running under the native Windows Python interpreter, SCons will prefer the MinGW tools over the Cygwin tools, if they are both installed, regardless of the order of the bin directories in the PATH variable\&. If you have both MSVC and MinGW installed and you want to use MinGW instead of MSVC, then you must explicitly tell SCons to use MinGW by passing
+.sp
+.if n \{\
+.RS 4
+.\}
+.nf
+tools=[\*(Aqmingw\*(Aq]
+.fi
+.if n \{\
+.RE
+.\}
+.PP
+to the Environment() function, because SCons will prefer the MSVC tools over the MinGW tools\&.
