"ccbuild is a C++ source scanning build utility for code distributed over directories. Like a dynamic Makefile, ccbuild finds all programs in the current directory (containing "int main") and builds them. For this, it reads the C++ sources and looks at all local and global includes. All C++ source files in the same directories of the local includes are considered objects for the main program. The global includes lead to extra compiler arguments using a configuration file. Next to running g++ it can create simple Makefiles, A-A-P files, and graph dependencies using DOT (Graphviz) graphs."

The code should be an example of how to parse a file.

Good article defining Software Configuration Management


"What Is Software Configuration Management?

Makes a better list than most of best practices.

Hudson main page

Where to get hudson: https://hudson.dev.java.net/
If you have wget then you can do this:
/usr/local/bin/wget -N --no-check-certificate http://hudson.gotdns.com/latest/hudson.war

http://hudson.jboss.org/hudson/ is a real live Hudson site used by jboss.org

http://fisheye4.atlassian.com/browse/~raw,r=12517/hudson/trunk/hudson/pl... is not working for me because my cvs does not parse the huge string that I am using.

I logged into dev.java.net and review this program. It uses stringBuilder in a wasteful way. in arrayToString it creates a new stringBuilder for each line of the modules list. It should use append instead.

Also, since many CVS clients are old, the servers are old, it is prone to failure in many ways. It should not put the whole module list on one line. It should run cvs rtag for each module individually. Still, it still just use one stringBuilder object.
