Subject Re: [PATCH] flood: Fixed floodenv.bat environment problem in
Date Tue, 04 Feb 2003 16:33:24 GMT
I liked the earlier patch to enable/disable OpenSSL.  But the patches
below indicate why we don't use batch files... we can't go digging
throughout the system and order the various VisualStudios and
PlatformSDKs correctly; that has to be up to the developer.


The update to VisualStudio 6.0 format?  +1
Cleaning up the SSL envvars list and detection?  +1
Using floodenv as an 'invoker' of make?  --1

Let me take your patches and experiment later today.  I believe we
can use this general structure to create a 'config' set of envvars that
can be #include'd into  This gets the developer back
to nmake'ing -f - after they've run a configure.bat style
app to set up the SSL environment (and perhaps - even capture the
then-current state of the compiler options so that 'memory' of /useenv
is consistent from then on.)

I should have a better sense for this by tomorrow.
