User's Guide: preTools Suite for Windows

Getting Started



The configurations section contains names assigned to one or more build components and setups. Each entry in this section has the following form:

	  <configuration name="ConfigName" default="0">

Any number of components can be listed in a configuration. Each such combination is given a unique name. A particular configuration is selected by the command line option "-cfg:<ConfigName>". One configuration in the configuration file can have its "default" attribute set to 1. This configuration will then become the default configuration if the preTool is launched without a "-cfg:" option.

For each component listed in a configuration, its base_config will be processed and its environment variable definitions added to the resulting environment. Each setup listed in a configuration will either provide a pre-initialization before a base_config is processed or a post-processing step after a base_config has been processed.
