OMake is a build system with a similar style and syntax to GNU make but with many additional features, including support for large projects spanning multiple directories, default configuration files simplifying the standard compilation tasks, support for commands that produce several targets at once, fast, reliable, automated, scriptable dependency analysis using MD5 digests, portability, and built-in functions that provide the most common features of programs like grep, sed, and awk. OMake also provides active filesystem monitoring that restarts builds automatically when source files are modified. A companion command interpreter that can be used interactively is included.
Here are some key features of "OMake":
Automated dependency analysis using MD5 digests.
Fully scriptable, includes a library for standard build tasks.
Projects spanning a multiple directories and directory hierarchies.
Architecture-independent builds; omake provides a uniform interface on Linux/Unix (including 64-bit architectures), Win32, OSX, and other platforms that are supported by OCaml.
A builtin command-interpreter osh.
What's New in This Release:
The conversion from OMake expressions to shell command lines went through a major redesign in this release to make it more consistent and less ad-hoc.
OMake documentation was significantly reorganized.
An experimental improved OCaml dependency scanner using the upcoming "ocamldep -modules" feature and support for the Menhir parser-generator were added to the standard library.
A number of new options to control OMake's output and verbosity were added; OMake is now more silent by default.
There are many other improvements and bugfixes.
