directory placement -- definitions
« on: April 12, 2009, 07:57:10 pm »
A few questions not answered by the doc.

1. What is the meaning of "execution working directory"?  In particular, what executes in that directory?

2. What path is the execution working directory relative to?  I.e., what does "." mean?

3. What is the difference between "execution working directory" and "Objects output directory"?

4. What files will appear in the objects output directory?  Is it only the files that are targets?

Thanks for any help.
