Re: [Condor-users] building sw with condor

hm, pmake doesn't distribute jobs over var. computers - right?

try to explain again:
- our buildsystem is gmake based
- building on a single workstation takes some time
- using condor would allow to distribute compilation to several computers
- modifying our buildsystem to just submit jobs to condor is not a very elegant solution - no more dependencies and no way to follow progress

How about pmake, e.g.


which is specifically designed for parallel compilation: it has low
latency (unlike systems such as Condor) so it starts jobs up *very*
quickly indeed. It uses standard Makefiles.
