[Scons-users] Command with empty action turns a normal file target into a directory

I am using Scons as a DAG that takes inputs (.csv) data and use python
functions to analyse the content of these .csv and output the results into
a target (.latex, .pdf, .csv, .tar, directory with other files)

I am testing the DAG in different circumstances so I get the proper
results, and also do not mess up my input files.

I still find it strange that, when the action is empty, that the Command
still does something to the target.

BTW if you know a better program to create a DAG that treats input files
(.csv for example) and outputs other files, please let me know.
