POSIX amake is a software build tool that adds automatic dependency analysis and target caching to GNU Make. It monitors and records commands executed, programs executed, shared libraries opened, files accessed, and environment-variable values. It maintains a multiuser/multihost cache of previously built targets: an SQL database stores target metadata (e.g., command and dependency checksums), while a regular filesystem stores target files and their siblings. The target-cache feature is optional, being enabled by a makefile variable. It has been used to build and rebuild the Linux kernel.
RTK (Ruckus Tool Kit) is a high-performance, Perl-based, dynamic, content-generation system. It provides a nearly transparent bridge between HTML-based code pages and traditional CGI-based systems. It has been designed to automatically take advantage of existing systems, such as basic CGI, Apache's mod_perl, FastCGI, and SpeedyCGI, but does not require such systems for high-performance optimization.
Kundo provides a structured, convention based approach for Java builds. Kundo has a pluggable, extensible architecture; it harnesses the power and flexibility of Groovy and Ant to provide a highly configurable Java build framework. Kundo achieves this flexibility with a plug-in architecture that attaches behaviors (provided by Kundo plug-ins) to build lifecycle phases. Kundo consists of a kernel and a set of foundation plug-ins. The kernel is responsible for the orchestration of the multiple collaborators within the build system.
Premake is a build configuration tool. Describe your C, C++, or C# software project using a simple, easy to read syntax and let Premake generate the project files for Visual Studio, GNU Make, Xcode, Code::Blocks, CodeLite, SharpDevelop, or MonoDevelop. Premake allows you to manage your project configuration in one place and still support different build systems. It allows you to generate project files for tools that you do not own. It saves the time that would otherwise be spent manually keeping several different toolsets in sync. And it provides an easy upgrade path as new versions of your favorite tools are released.
depfinder finds the dependencies of Slackware packages. The dependency list can be output to stdout, to a .dep text file without version information, or to a slack-required file with version information. depfinder is very fast; its speed is mainly due to the C++ code that is used in depfinder to find in which package each individual library is included. It also has support for running multiple jobs, which makes it a lot faster when used with multiple CPUs/cores. depfinder supports detecting dependencies of binary files compiled with languages such as C or C++ and it can also detect Python dependencies.
