I'm Too Old for Broken Builds

I'm too old for broken builds.

I'm also too old for arguments about build tooling that feel like a Religous Holy War.

Use whatever you use, dig whatever you dig, as long as it actually works:

When I get inside a build script file, there's only one thing I really want to do: Leave It ASAP and get back to the real task at hand. You can optimize for that if you like.. or not.

Would it be better if C/C++ had a One Single Thing like those cool kids over at Rust and Go?


But, it's too late unless you can invent a time-machine and go back to say 1970? Then again, I can think of better things to do with a time-machine than "fix build systems", so nevermind.

C'est la vie
