[Scons-users] custom builder for use with wine

thanks a lot for your example. Hacking around a little, I found a
solution that works (see attached file)...but doesn't look very pretty.
The problem is that all custom defined tests get called as a
CheckContext, which sort of wraps the actual SConfBase class.

This is the reason why simply adding "TryWine" to "SConfBase" is not
enough, you have to provide the delegate method for "CheckContext" too.



-------------- next part --------------
import SCons.SConf
import os

def my_test(conf):
conf.Message("Checking hello world: ");
print result[1];
conf.Result("yes, it works!");

my_test.prog = r"""
#include <stdio.h>
int main(void)
printf("Hello World\n");
return 0;

def TryWine(self, text, extension):
ok = self.TryLink(text, extension);
if( ok ):
prog = self.lastTarget;
pname = prog.path;
#pname = "/path_to_wine/wine " + prog.path;
output = self.confdir.File(os.path.basename(pname)+'.out');
node = self.env.Command(output, prog, [ [ pname, ">", "${TARGET}"] ]);
ok = self.BuildNodes(node);
if ok:
outputStr = output.get_contents();
return( 1, outputStr);
return (0, "");

SCons.SConf.SConfBase.TryWine = TryWine

def CheckContextTryWine(self, *args, **kw):
return self.sconf.TryWine(*args, **kw)

SCons.SConf.CheckContext.TryWine = CheckContextTryWine

env = Environment();
conf = Configure(env, custom_tests = {'my_test' : my_test});
#conf.TryWine = ConfTryWine
print conf.my_test();
env = conf.Finish();
