[Scons-users] Using multiple scanners together

You are correct.  Scanner types will not change once the initial scanner
selection has been made.


Scanners exist: c_scan and b_scan

Files: A.c include B.b
Files: A.b include B.c

Scanning A.c invokes the c_scan on both A.c and all dependencies
Scanning A.b invokes the b_scan on both A.b and all dependencies

I'm not sure if cross-language scanning is "broken" or it was never
supported.  I assume the later.  There are bugs reports that capture this
behavior already (though perhaps not generically).

I have worked on a patch that could resolve this issue. After working
through the system, I determined that the solution wasn't optimal.  A
better solution would be to acquire a new scanner from the base selector
mechanism rather than trying to nest scanners.
