Yeah, in fact I think the much more common use case of the build system
is 'ant abcl.clean abcl.wrapper'. I almost always want a full build
from scratch, which is now taking slightly under two minutes for my
MacBook Pro laptop. A couple years ago, a full build took something
like five minutes from what I remember, so there was more of a need for
What's your usage pattern like? Maybe I should make 'abcl.clean
abcl.wrapper' the default target, where the old behavior could be
re-restablished via setting an Ant property. This is contrary to the
behavior of most build systems that I have experienced, but since we
could write a banner message like "Starting build from scratch; set
'abcl.build.incremental' in 'build.properties' to enable incremental
builds in the future." Thoughts?
"A screaming comes across the sky. It has happened before, but there
is nothing to compare to it now."
