[Scons-users] Creation of an archive of source files with Node.all_children()

Hi Dirk,

Thank you for your answer, your solution works fine, and it works even
if I remove the line "env.Append('CPPPATH=['.']).
The result is : tar -c -f sub/all_sources.tar sub/SConscript
sub/main.cpp sub/define.inc    => exactly what I expected.

But, if I remove the generation of the file define.h from define.inc,
and the subdirectory to simplified, the archive does not contain
define.h anymore.
This is my new SConstruct :

env = Environment()

foo = env.Program('foo', 'main.cpp')

env.Tar('all_sources', FindSourceFiles())

and the result :

% scons --tree=prune
scons: Reading SConscript files ...
scons: done reading SConscript files.
scons: Building targets ...
tar -c -f all_sources.tar SConstruct main.cpp
g++ -o main.o -c -I. main.cpp
g++ -o foo main.o
  | +-SConstruct
  | +-main.cpp
  | +-/bin/tar
  | +-main.o
  | | +-main.cpp
  | | +-define.h
  | | +-/usr/bin/g++
  | +-/usr/bin/g++
scons: done building targets.

As you can see, define.h is not included in the archive, but it is
found as dependency for main.o.
Would you have any idea about that ? For me, define.h should be
included in the dependencies of all_sources.tar, so do not hesitate to
tell me if I make a mistake.

I attach the complete project to this mail.

Best Regards,


PS: my version of scons :
