this is something we've been doing here for a long time using some "hacks"
I've been planning to send some patches but haven't yet had time to do it.
I've just checked out the head of the CVS and tried it out. I've got a
couple of doubts, though:
- Since only the staged target gets a different name, what if I include the
base target in the sources? Using the above example:
lib foo : foo.cpp my_list ;
foo.so will depend upon libmy_list.so and not libmy_list.so.1.32.0. Or did I
get it wrong?
- In addition to this, I think versioning is horizontal to all platforms.
E.g., for Windows what we do here is to change the DLL name but keep the
import lib name:
MyDLL.dll --> MyDLL.1.32.0.dll
MyDLL.lib --> MyDLL.lib
In order to do this, I changed generators.generated-targets so that, if a
<version-number> property exists:
- for gcc, the version number is appended to the name of SHARED_LIB targets.
- for msvc, the version number is inserted between the name and the postfix
of SHARED_LIB targets.
- IMPORT_LIB targets are kept unchanged.
Symlinks are another problem, and I agree that these should be done at the
