Abstract:

BUILD is a tool for keeping modular system in a consistent state by managing the construction tasks e.g. compilation, linking etc. associated with such systems. It employs a user supplied system model and a procedural description of a task to be performed in order to perform the task. This differs from existing tools which do not explicitly separate knowledge about systems from knowledge about how systems are manipulated. Build provides a static framework for modeling systems and handling construction requests that makes use of programming environment specific definitions. By altering the set of definitions, BUILD can be extended to work with new programming environments and to perform new tasks.
