bldconfadd - Add a build configuration to the PARSEC suite
bldconfadd is a tool of the PARSEC benchmark suite that can be used to
create new build configurations. A new build configuration can either be empty
or a copy of an already existing configuration. The tool will automatically
create all necessary files.
A build configuration is a set of configuration files that contains details
on how to build a package. More about the various configuration files of
the PARSEC framework can be found in the main help page for PARSEC.
- -n NAME
Name of the build configuration to add. If no further arguments are given than
an empty build configuration will be created.
- -c CONFIG
Create a hard copy of configuration CONFIG. The resulting configuration will
be a full, independent copy of CONFIG.
- -s CONFIG
Create a soft copy of configuration CONFIG. The resulting configuration will
load CONFIG. Subsequent changes to CONFIG will also affect the referring
configuration. The copy is not a symbolic link, it is possible to manually
modify the new configuration so that it is different from the configuration
that is loaded. Soft copies can be used if the new build configuration
specializes the source configuration.
Force the creation of the new build configuration and overwrite any existing
Displays a help message.
- Create an empty configuration my-config which does nothing:
bldconfadd -n my-config
- Create a copy my-config of configuration gcc, overwrite existing
bldconfadd -n my-config -c gcc -f
- Create a new configuration my-config which merely points to gcc
bldconfadd -n my-config -s gcc
Hidden dummy file used by bldconfadd to recognize that the correct
directory has been auto-detected.
Path to the root directory of the PARSEC distribution. bldconfadd
auto-detects the root directory by using heuristics to search for
.parsec-uniquefile, but it is possible to override that behavior with
this environment variable.
