For any programmer or team struggling with builds and maintenance, this book can save dozens of errors and hours of effort. It shows you how to structure a large project and keep your files and builds under control over many releases and platforms. The building blocks are simple: common-sense strategies, public-domain tools that you can obtain on a variety of systems, and special utilities developed by the author.
On two diskettes provided with the book, Jameson offers a complete system for managing directories, makefile templates, and source code revisions. Both free software and tools developed by the author are included.
The tools and ideas offered here are efficient enough to be used by one person working on a PC, but powerful enough to support entire teams of developers. They've been tested in practice on projects from 50 to 100,000 lines of code. And complete, documented source code is included, in case you need to modify or extend the tools.
In short, this book is an inexpensive, "one-stop-shopping" solution for code management problems. It can help you improve your personal software development process and can make it very easy for you to reuse and update shared code files.
