SCons Building System


SConsexternal is a new-generation software building tool written in Python. Its function is analogous to that of the traditional GNU build system based on the make utility and the autoconf tools.

A major advantage of SCons over other building system is that configuration files are actual Python scripts, which means that user-written builds have access to a complete general-purpose high-level programming language.

Detailed instructions can be found hereexternal.

If you are of the type that doesn't read instructions:

  1. Because SCons is written in Python, you must obviously have Python installed on your system. SCons will work with any version of Python >1.5.2 (>2.5 is recommended).
  2. Download the latest stable versionexternal of SCons and uncompress the file.
  3. Move to the resulting folder and type (you may need super-user privileges for this to work): python setup.py install
