> Hello, I am running into an issue with generated C files that apparently are not rescan after generation. I thought this may have worked at one time and the mailing list suggest that it did but the attached example does not show it working (maybe I am doing something wrong??). If you build the 'test' target in the attached example (I am building on Windows using svn-85183), the exe will be built successfully. However, if you make a change to test.h, and rebuild without -a, nothing will be rebuilt. If you do a -d+12 you will see that the generated gen.c does not have any header file dependencies but it actually depends on test.h. Attached is also my -d+12 output.

It looks to me like the scanner isn't automatically inherited.
You can try:

type.set-scanner GEN_C : c-scanner ;
