I'm trying to use ant 1.6.1 with cpptask to compile my c++ source code. Everything is dandy, compilation time is waaay down however I'm noticing that everytime I run ant in the source dir in question, it is recompiling all the .cpp files despite the fact they haven't changed. The task is pretty standard;


any idea how I can get ant to compile *only* those source files that actually need to be rebuilt?

thanks a million

I don´t know the cpp-tasks from AntContrib, but here some points:

  • you should use
     tags to format code snippets, it´s much easier to read

  • you don´t have to use './' in file attributes (like objdir, fileset-dir), a '.' is enough (and more common)

  • dependy checks should be done in the task itself, therefore the cpp-compiler decides which files have to be compiled. If it does too much, the task implementation is wrong :-)

  • workaround to that is using the (Ant) or (AntContrib) tasks
