The trash can full of ideas


This is a helper script for GNU Global on Windows. On some occasions you might have your source code on a write protected media. Then it’s a bit tricky to setup GNU Global. I don’t know why it have to be tricky like this. The developers should have made an easy command line switch for it.

This small Perl script will auto generate bat-files that in turn will setup all necessary path etc for you to be able to use GNU Global on Windows. The script is working for both normal Command prompt and if you are using Cygwin (1.5.2 was the latest version I tested this on).

Language: Perl

Status: Done for the moment.
