Imake the program or imake the package?
Both. "imake" the program did not used to have a package before, so
the two are one and the same. The difference is that in the modular
tree, imake the program is now in it's own package standalone, like
everything else in the modular tree.
I haven't seen any new software using imake in a long time but
programs using makedepend comes to my mind.
I believe this is true, that people are no longer using imake for
new software projects. However that isn't a problem to solve as
it solves itself already.
The problem that I'm trying to solve right now, is that existing
software out there does indeed use imake during build, and will
break if it goes away. That's the stuff we want to find. I suspect
that there are probably a fair number of oldish Motif/Xt/Xaw
applications out there currently that use imake to build with, and
will fail soon.
If you search you'll find a lot more hits on google for
makedepend than for
That may be so, but that is an orthagonal issue which is not even
a problem, considering that makedepend is already provided in the
X modular tree and is fully useable.
Just to be clear - this request is strictly about imake and nothing
Thanks in advance.
